In the fiscal 2013 U.S. Copyright Office budget request, the Office states that (emphasis added):
It will work with Congress on a number of major studies and policy developments, including orphan works, revisions of certain exceptions to copyright (including for libraries), mass digitization policy, and final work on small claims solutions for copyright owners (with a major study due to Congress in October 2013).In 2011, the U.S. Copyright Office published "Legal Issues in Mass Digitization: A Preliminary Analysis and
Discussion Document" (97 pages). That document and other background material are available at http://www.copyright.gov/docs/massdigitization. While this may not be information that you need, I can tell you that the appendices in the preliminary discussion document caught my attention. I can see using a couple of them in my upcoming class.
