Re:Create Calls On U.S. Senate To Oppose Copyright Register Bill, Focus On Copyright Office Modernization Needs

Coalition reacts to House passage of H.R. 1695

WASHINGTON — The Re:Create Coalition issued the below statement following passage of H.R. 1695, The Register of Copyrights Selection and Accountability Act, in the U.S. House of Representatives today:

“We are disappointed that the House failed to stop this flawed bill from passage. We can’t allow the content industry to disrupt the Register of Copyrights selection process and tilt the balance of the Copyright Office in its favor. The Copyright Office’s mission to serve the public is too important and must be protected.

“The Senate has the opportunity to focus on the real problem at hand, which is to modernize the Copyright Office for the digital age. We urge Senators to oppose the Register of Copyrights bill,” said Joshua Lamel, Executive Director of the Re:Create Coalition.
