I know little about this complex situation but for the record did Hathi contact the Authors Guild with a request for collaboration? Surely they should have done.

This is a problem publishers have long been accustomed to grappling with, and they have worked out good procedures for resolving the question. Libraries have not had much reason in the past to worry about the orphan status of works in their collections, I assume, so this is a new challenge for them. My guess is that a publisher would not have made the same kinds of mistakes that HathiTrust evidently made with some of its determinations, as embarrassingly revealed by the Authors Guild.
