Are your photos Orphan Works?

They've been pushing this again and again - sadly whilst people have generally opposed them big companies have, I suspect, simply kept pushing it again and again until such a point that organising public outcry simply fails to work anymore (coupled with the fact that the vast majority of people not in creative jobs/hobbies likely have no idea about how copyright works even at a basic level).
For this particular issue, there are major corporations on both sides that have opposite interests. For instance, Google/youtube would be interested in orphaned works being a thing, whereas Disney or the RIAA for example would not want such laws.

The swing vote from the public doesn't have to be as large when corporations are already fighting each other.
