Extended Deadline to Submit Reply Comments to USCO on NPRM on Expanded Access to Electronic Deposit
October 30 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. Reply comments were due by October 16, but that deadline has been extended to October 30.
