Copyright Office Releases Report of Office Policies and Special Projects

The Reg­is­ter of Copy­rights, Maria Pal­lante, has issued an impor­tant report, high­light­ing key policy-based pri­or­i­ties and announc­ing sev­eral spe­cial projects that the Office will imple­ment over the next two years.  If you care about copy­right law, I highly rec­om­mend you read this report.

There is much good news in it, includ­ing the Register’s plans to con­tinue upgrad­ing the Office’s web­site and mak­ing more of the pub­lic record avail­able elec­tron­i­cally.  For those less famil­iar with the vast amount of impor­tant work the Office does in con­nec­tion with pol­icy stud­ies and leg­is­la­tion, this report will pro­vide ample proof of just how impor­tant a role the Copy­right Office plays with respect to shap­ing and imple­ment­ing copy­right law.

Of spe­cial note, the Office will be con­duct­ing regional roundtable-type events to obtain input from all of the copy­right law’s many stake­hold­ers (hope­fully includ­ing the pub­lic) and guide future poli­cies.  I will be sure to keep you apprised of such meet­ings.  As a spe­cial bonus for copy­right geeks, we will finally be get­ting a revi­sion to the Copy­right Office Compendium!

Here is the Register’s Report:
