10 organisations in the AV sector have signed a joint Position Paper on the proposed Orphan Works Directive.

The audiovisual sector has long questioned the scope of the largely undocumented problem   of orphan works in our sector and therefore oppose the inclusion of cinematographic and audiovisual works within the scope of the Proposal. If audiovisual works are to be included in the Proposal, substantial modifications are required to ensure proportionality and legal certainty in the application of the Directive to the specific and unique characteristics of audiovisual content.
