TRA Statement Re: Introduction of the Register of Copyrights Selection and Accountability Act
Copyright is a bedrock of our economy, and thus the selection of the Register of Copyrights is critical to creators and consumers. We applaud Chairman Goodlatte and Ranking Member Conyers for introducing legislation that would elevate the role of Register to a Presidential appointee. We support passage of the Register of Copyrights Selection and Accountability Act and look forward to working with the Judiciary Committee on future proposals regarding music licensing and other copyright issues.
