2014 Washington Report: Comprehensive Copyright Reform
The House Judiciary Committee is forging ahead with hearings on "Comprehensive Copyright Reform"—-with an eye toward potentially major changes to the Copyright Act. The critical issues include whether the first sale doctrine should apply to digital works (thus allowing the sale of used ebooks), the scope of fair use, orphan works, mass digitization, piracy, and the import of lower-priced foreign editions into the US. The Copyright Office and Commerce Department are holding their own hearings focusing on many of the same topics. Linda Steinman, AAUP's outside counsel, will provide an update on these hearings and their impact on AAUP members.
Speaker: Linda Steinman, Partner, Davis Wright Tremaine, LLC
