Small orphan bill reintroduced, bigger implications? HR24"And that's where I think the implications of this small bill are actually quite heartening. Howard 'Hollywood' Berman (CA) is sponsoring HR 24, with John Conyers (MI) and Zoe Lofgren (CA).
The implication, I think, is that film preservationists are willing to use the provision (once it's extended to films), despite the wretched 'normal commercial exploitation' language. Film copyrights are the absolute worst, what with underlying music, performance rights etc."
