Proposed UK orphan works legislation

According to The Register, the UK government is proposing legislation on orphan works. They say:

Quote:
Photographers, illustrators and authors will be amongst those to lose their digital rights under radical new proposals published by the Government today. New legislation is proposed that would effectively introduce a compulsory purchase order, but without compensation, across an unlimited range of creative works, for commercial use.
Opinions? Is The Register overstating their case, or are they reporting this accurately?
