The NWU participated in a high-level conference on orphan works and mass digitization in April 2012, at which the NWU presented a white paper on the "Facts and Fallacies of Orphan Works"
<http://www.nwubook.org/NWU-orphan-works-4APR2012.pdf>. In May 2012, the NWU met with the American Library Association to discuss these and related concerns.

In August 2012, the NWU submitted comments to the U.S. Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator <http://www.nwubook.org/NWU-IPEC-2012.pdf>, incorporating the NWU white paper on orphan works and addressing the obstacles faced by writers in enforcing their copyrights, especially against infringement by publishers.
