Lessig Calls Orphan Works Legislation "Unfair and Unwise"

In his The New York Times Op-Ed today, Lawrence Lessig, Professor of Law at Stanford Law School and chair of the board of Creative Commons, states that the current Orphan Works legislation is "amazingly onerous and inefficient," "unfairly and unnecessarily burden[some]," and with "little return to the public." In sum, it appears that he doesn't like it. Neither do I.
