Reform of U.S. copyright law is under active consideration these days. The Register of Copyrights has announced her interest in developing "the next great copyright act." The Patent & Trademark Office, which leads the Administration's policy on copyright issues, has published a Green Paper on copyright reform issues. And Congress has been holding a series of hearings about copyright reform. This seminar will consider a number of possible copyright reforms, including ways to make orphan works more available, whether sound recordings should have public performance rights, and how statutory damages rules might be reformed. Students will be expected to write a paper on a copyright reform topic.
