Deadline for Comments to USCO NOI on STMs and Section 512
May 27 All day
On May 5, the U.S. Copyright Office published a Notice of Inquiry (NOI) on Standard Technical Measures (STMs) and Section 512. “The NOI includes thirteen questions on the topics of existing technical measures, the current 512(i) process, and potential changes to 512(i),” and the Copyright Office is seeking comments “to enhance the public record and to advise Congress.” The NOI makes it clear that “it is separate from the Office’s current consultations on voluntarily technical measures for identifying or protecting copyrighted works online.” Written comments are due by May 27, after which time the Office will determine if further comments are necessary.
