PSP Free Guest Speaker Talk – Copyright Alliance
12:30 PM - 1:30 PM
Copyright: What's On the Horizon? The Legislative and Regulatory Outlook for 2017-2018
The PSP Books Committee will be hearing from guest speaker Keith Kupferschmid, CEO of the Copyright Alliance who will discuss Copyright: What's On the Horizon? The Legislative and Regulatory Outlook for 2017-2018 on Friday, June 16th from 12:30-1:30pm at the McGraw-Hill/NY offices. Much of Keith’s discussion will focus on the legislative efforts in Congress to modernize the U.S. Copyright Office. He will focus on the first step in this process -- H.R. 1695, the Register of Copyrights Selection and Accountability Act -- that was introduced in March and passed by the House on April 26, as well as provisions that may be included in follow-up legislation to modernize the Office. Other topics Keith will discuss will include the possible creation of a tribunal within the Copyright Office to handle small copyright claims, potential changes to the DMCA’s notice and takedown regime and other potential changes to the Copyright Act that Congress may consider in the coming months.
