OpusNet / NoTorrent infrastructure
We are working in the VEKOP-2.1.1-15-2016 project with Líra Ltd. as a consortium partner on creating infrastructure supporting the legitimate use, service and digitisation of works under copyright and providing automatised cooperation for stakeholders.
Directive 2012/28/EU for orphan works in terms of digitizability/accessibility considers adequate licensing as a key issue and determines the criteria and source of searching for the rightholders. There is a need for an integrated system for the legal digitization of out of commerce works, which enables identification, commercial accessibility based on the books-in-print database or the identification of the rightholder of copyright.
The aim of the Project is to create sector infrastructure, which supports digital content provision, including the availability of licence information regarding access and usage rights; the introduction of electronic library services; and provides access to quality metadata for professionals working in the sector.
