Orphan Works Comments, Round 2

After the first 716 comments on orphan works, you’d think the Copyright Office would have had enough. Instead, they allowed the filing of “responses” to the initial 716 comment salvo and got another 145 comments. Whew! That’s a lot of reading. I wonder if the sheer volume alone, plus some of the sniping in the responses, is enough to destroy any sense of consensus that would grease the way for the Copyright Office to take a firm stand.
