Copyright Office to hold November hearings on small copyright claims in NYC and LA

The Copyright Office will hold public hearings on small copyright claim issues in New York City on November 15-16, 2012 and Los Angeles on November 26-27, 2012. The Office is holding these discussions to learn more about the topics listed in its August 23, 2012 Notice of Inquiry and the comments submitted in response to that Notice, as well as the comments in response to the initial October 27, 2012 Notice of Inquiry. The Copyright Office was requested by Congress to explore alternative means for owners of small copyright claims to more easily pursue actions that may be precluded due to the high costs and hurdles associated with prosecutin such claims.
