Copyright Alliance Update On The CODE Act

House Judiciary Committee members Reps. Judy Chu (D-CA) and Tom Marino (R-PA) have been working to draft legislation, the Copyright Office for the Digital Economy (CODE) Act, to modernize the Copyright Office. 

Key provisions of a discussion draft released this week include: 

Establishes the U.S. Copyright Office as an independent agency.

Provides that the President will appoint a Director for one 10-year term upon the advice of a bipartisan, bicameral commission, and with consent of the Senate.

Transfers administrative functions and legal duties from the Library to the Copyright Office.

Allows the Copyright Office to deliver any and all communications directly to the legislative branch, free of executive review.

Would allow the Copyright Office to physically move out of the Library and into a new federal building.

The AIMP thanks the Copyright Alliance for this update and report.
