Maybe not, but congress has repeatedly shown itself incapable of mustering the will to act on the issue of Orphan Works. The 1978 change in US copyright law which removed the requirement to make even the most elementary affirmative act to assert and retain copyright has shown itself to be a dismal failure. The legislative process has failed, and in such a circumstance it is proper for the judicial arm of government to correct matters (and, hopefully, spur the legislative arm into action).
