CopyTalk: Bias at the Copyright Office?

I knew that title would be intriguing! At our next CopyTalk – which is this Thursday, November 3rd – Staff attorney Meredith Rose from Public Knowledge will discuss their report, Captured: Systemic Bias at the U.S. Copyright Office. Meredith will talk about the position and role of the Copyright Office, the influence of industry groups on Copyright Office policy positions, and what libraries and other groups can do to make sure their needs are reflected in Office policy going forward. Cup of coffee with beans.

Meredith’s work focuses telecommunications regulatory matters as well as copyright. Prior to working at PK, Meredith was a University of Chicago Public Service fellow with the Center for Economic Progress, and worked on consumer policy issues at the Federal Communications Commission, the Trans-Atlantic Consumer Dialogue, and Knowledge Ecology International. Meredith received her J.D. and A.B. from the University of Chicago. When not in the office, she’s an avid video gamer and desert hiker.

With the Register of Copyrights resigning from the Copyright Office just last week, this CopyTalk is well timed!

Thursday, November 3rd at 2pm Eastern/11am Pacific
