700+ Orphan Works comments at the Copyright Office

Gavin sez, "The U.S. Copyright Office has posted the orphan works comments that were submitted. Over 700 comments were submitted in total. The CO will be accepting comments in direct reply to these through May 9."

(Thanks, Gavin!)

Update: Joe sez, " LOC has posted all these orphan works comments in locked PDFs that don't allow copying and pasting of the text? Seems a little silly as the reply commentors will not be able to quote the comments easily… is the LOC going copyright-paranoid?"

Update 2: A different Joe sez, "all email comments submitted to the LoC's notice of inquiry on orphaned works weren't properly redacted. That is, they simply drew white boxes over sensitive information instead of leaving it out of the documents entirely."
