Re. Hathi Orphans?

This is a marvellous point. If publishers honestly collaborated
on the task of identifying genuinely orphans, and if they also
made an honest effort to let go what has no obvious economic
value (in other words, get rid of the "just in case" mentality),
we could work together far more harmoniously.

on itself.

Objet : RE: Hathi Orphans

What makes me wonder is, if the Authors Guild can find owners of
orphan works so fast why they don't try to collaborate with these
types of ventures instead of suing them?
