Crowdsourcing diligent search: a solution for the orphan works problem?

On 29 September 2015 the Digital Catapult Centre in London hosted a one-day workshop on Copyright and orphan works, which brought together legal experts, archivists and museums curators to explore challenges and opportunities of the recently implemented orphan works legislation.

As part of the workshop, Maurizio Borghi introduced the EnDOW project and the concept of relying on crowdsourcing to reduce the costs of diligent search for cultural institutions.
