Position Papers

One of the primary goals of the Copyright Alliance is to help educate and inform the copyright community, policymakers, and the public about U.S. copyright law. As the unified voice of the copyright community, our mission is to advocate for policies that promote and preserve the value of copyright, and to protect the rights of creators and innovators. To aid in accomplishing this mission, we write position papers on important copyright related topics to explain the Copyright Alliance’s views on these topics. Some of the topics include, but are not limited to, the modernization of the U.S. Copyright Office, the first sale doctrine and terrestrial broadcast rights.
