The Copyright and Rights in Performances (Certain Permitted Uses of Orphan Works) Regulations 2014

These Regulations amend the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 (“the Act”) by inserting new sections 44A and 76A, a new paragraph 6I in Schedule 2 and a new Schedule ZA1. The Regulations implement the provisions of Directive 2012/28/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25th October 2012 on certain permitted uses of orphan works (OJ No L299/5, 27.10.2012, p.1).

The Regulations provide for the permitted uses of orphan works by relevant bodies. The Regulations define “relevant body”, “relevant work”, “rightholder” and “orphan work”.

The Regulations set out the requirements for a diligent search, for the purpose of establishing whether a relevant work is an orphan work, and include a list of the minimum sources to be searched in different cases. The Regulations require a relevant body to supply certain information to the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market.
