– Company participates in Technology and Orphan Works: The State of the Art sponsored by U.S. Copyright Office –
Redmond, WA – January 15, 2008 – Infoflows Corporation today announced its participation in the Technology and Orphan Works: The State of the Art event hosted by the Copyright Office in Washington, DC. Orphan works are copyrighted works whose owners are difficult or impossible to identify and locate. Focused on showcasing the most innovative new technologies likely to have a positive impact on the Orphan Works problem, Infoflows demonstrated its Fedmark Image and Video Services to Congressional staff members responsible for overseeing changes to Copyright Laws.
“We were very happy to be invited to this innovative event and commend the Copyright Office for being so diligent in its review of potential solutions to the Orphan Works problem” stated Steve Stone, CEO of Infoflows Corporation. “Fedmark offers content users an effective and east-to-use tool for making a diligent search to locate copyright owners.”
In early 2006 after extensive study, the US Copyright Office recommended changes to existing copyright law that would provide limitations on damages awards and injunctions available to copyright owners if a prospective content user, prior to the commencement of use, performs a good faith, reasonably diligent search to locate the copyright owner yet is unable to locate the owner. “We are very pleased by the industry support from companies like Infoflows for this event, and believe that they, along with others, were able to show how technology can help address this problem” stated Marybeth Peters, Register of Copyrights in the US Copyright Office.
Infoflows launched the Fedmark platform in 2006. Based on the patented Handle System, the Fedmark Platform is a system for uniquely and persistently identifying, managing, and tracking digital objects. Supported by an easily managed user interface and the most powerful internet crawl technology available in the industry, Infoflows believes that Fedmark Video will become the standard for intellectual property protection for stock image content owners.
