EYE film museum uploads 720 records to the EU Orphan Works database

Since the Orphan Works Directive has been transposed in the Netherlands, the exception in the Dutch Copyright Act allows orphan works to be digitised and made public under certain conditions. EYE is one of the 11 film archives in Europe involved in the FORWARD project. Forward aims to create a EU-wide system for establish the rights status of audiovisual works, as well as a registry for orphan films.
