I got this [see below] from Congressman Cooper in Tennessee, but have not 
heard from either Senator that I wrote to on same day [May7]
Dear Mr. Pinkerton: Thank you for getting in touch to express your views on 
H.R. 5889, the Orphan Works Act.  I know that as an artist intellectual 
property rights are extremely important to you. I appreciate your hard work, 
and I understand your concerns. 
Especially in a city like Nashville where art and music are so ingrained in 
our daily life, it is all the more important to give artists and musicians 
the legal tools they need to decide how and when their artwork is displayed, 
reproduced, and appreciated by the public. H.R. 5889 would address "orphan 
works" that may still be subject to copyright protection but whose owners 
cannot be located. I understand your concerns about the implications of this 
bill and I will be sure to keep your comments in mind if it comes to a vote 
on the floor. It is currently under consideration by the House Committee on 
the Judiciary. Thanks again for writing. I hope to hear from you again soon. 
Sincerely, Jim CooperMember of Congress
