The Colorado Bar Association presents: The Copyright Office Speaks: The Office’s Modernization Efforts and the Music Modernization Act.
The Copyright Office is in the middle of fundamentally changing how it does business to meet the modern needs of its customers and users. It is reconsidering how it functions, how it is organized, and how to adapt new technologies to its users’ needs. At the same time, Congress is in the middle of its own modernization efforts and is considering major changes to the music laws with the proposed Music Modernization Act. Copyright Office Attorney-Advisor John Riley will discuss where both Congress and the Office are in their modernization efforts, and what it means for you.
