These comments are extraordinary in light of the fact that publishers are one of the main protagonists in finding solutions to Orphan Works issues. Take a look at the ARROW Project, for instance - the website is here: http://www.arrow-net.eu/ and a recent paper about ARROW is here: http://www.publishersassociation.org.uk/images/stories/PLS%20ALCS%20ARROW%20paper.pdf As some readers of this list may already know ARROW is a collaborative European project that enables a diligent search for rightsholders and speeds up the process for mass digitisation. You'll see from the links above that publishers are active partners in this project and have supported, advocated and progressed it from the beginning. This is hardly a sign that publishers are not making an 'honest effort' to sort out these highly important issues.

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.
