Deadline to Submit Written Comments to USCO on NPRM on Expanded Access to Electronic Deposits of Copyrighted Works

October 2 All day

On September 1, the U.S. Copyright Office issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) “to update its regulation regarding access to electronic deposits of published works submitted to the Office and selected for addition to the collections of the Library of Congress.” The proposed rule expands the categories of eligible electronic deposits covered by the Office’s current regulation with the same limitations on access as are currently in place. The proposed changes are part of ongoing steps by the Library of Congress and the Copyright Office to encourage submission of works in electronic form and therefore reduce the need for copyright owners to deposit physical copies. Written comments are due by October 2, and reply comments are due by October 16.
