One of our goals at the Copyright Alliance is to educate and inform the copyright community, policy makers and the public about copyright law. To accomplish this goal, we try to provide as much information about the copyright laws as feasible. On this section of the website you can find all materials issued by governmental organizations that relate to copyright.
You can find in this section of our website the most recent version of the Copyright Act, found in title 17 of the U.S. Code; the Copyright Regulations, found in title 37 of the Code of Federal Regulations; and the Copyright Office’s Compendium, which is the administrative manual of the Register of Copyrights that provides instruction to Copyright Office staff regarding their statutory duties as well as guidance to copyright applicants, practitioners, scholars, the courts, and members of the general public regarding Copyright Office practices and principles of copyright law.
Also found in this section are copies of significant copyright court decisions. Where possible, for more recent and pending cases, we also provide copies of court documents filed by the parties and amicus briefs filed by interested parties.
In addition to the copyright law and court decisions, you can also find in this section of our website: copyright legislation pending in Congress, reports relating to copyright that have been published by executive or legislative branch agencies, copyright-related hearings held by Congress and international agreements related to copyright.
