Session Name: Copyright Reform: Overview, Insights and Perspectives on "The Great New Copyright Act"
MeetingType: Mid-Winter Meeting
Date: 02/13/15
Description: About three years ago, Maria Pallante, the Register of Copyrights, introduced the phrase “The Next Great New Copyright Act.” Since then, the Copyright Office, the USPTO, the Justice Department, and Congress, have expended significant resources and energy trying to determine what would be the substance and scope of such an Act. This panel provides an update on the complex process, a review of the stakeholders involved, and most importantly the political dynamics and legislative maneuvering that may or may not get us to the “The Next Great Copyright Act.”
