Copyright Register Bill Would Hinder Modernization Efforts

WASHINGTON — The Re:Create Coalition issued a statement in advance of the House Judiciary Committee’s markup of H.R. 1695, the Register of Copyrights Selection and Accountability Act:

“The Copyright Office is already lagging behind the latest technology developments and is in need of modernization in order to effectively administer the nation’s copyright laws. Unfortunately, Congress is rushing through a bill that will not address the need to modernize the Copyright Office and will in fact slow down ongoing efforts,” said Joshua Lamel, Executive Director of the Re:Create Coalition.
