FORWARD will create a EU wide system to assess the rights status for all types of audiovisual works, including orphans.

This way, cultural institutions, commercial entities and all potential users will get a clear indication whether a work is in public domain or in-copyright, and in this case, whether it is orphan and under which conditions it can be used across Europe. FORWARD will take into account all national legislations deriving from the implementation of the Directive 2012/28/EU on Orphan Works.
