The House Judiciary Committee continued its copyright review listening tour with a roundtable discussion at Santa Clara University on November 9th. Participants included a wide range of creators, innovators, technology professionals, and users of copyrighted works.
Chairman Goodlatte and Ranking Member Conyers issued the following statement on the next stops of the copyright review listening tour.
“Two years ago, the House Judiciary Committee launched a comprehensive review of our nation’s copyright laws, which have not been updated since 1976. As technology continues to rapidly advance, we have a responsibility to ensure that our laws are keeping pace with these developments.
“The Committee is traveling to locations across America to hear directly from creators and innovators about the challenges they face in their creative fields and what changes are needed to ensure U.S. copyright law reflects the digital age in which we live. We look forward to continuing the productive dialog that we had in Nashville, the first stop of the Committee’s listening tour.”
