Recording Academy Statement Re: House Passage of H.R. 1695, the Register of Copyrights Selection and Accountability Act

“The nation’s foremost copyright expert just moved a step closer from ‘government employee’ to  ‘Presidential appointee with Senate confirmation.’ This important development in updating copyright laws illustrates Congress’ renewed priority of the issue. The Recording Academy thanks Chairman Goodlatte and Ranking Member Conyers for their commitment to creators and looks forward to continued progress on copyright.”
