Copyright Matters Lecture Series
The Copyright Matters lecture series was
founded by Register of Copyrights Maria A. Pallante in 2011 as a
community forum to discuss the practical implications of copyright law
in the 21st century and to provide education and training to the staff
of the U.S. Copyright Office. Through the series, a wide range of
invited speakers – including Congressional leaders, authors, market
experts, and legal scholars – present topics of critical importance to
the copyright debate. Lectures occur throughout the year at the
historic Library of Congress and include discussions about authorship,
copyright registration, marketplace investment, copyright enforcement,
fair use, international norm setting, orphan works and other updates and
revisions of copyright law for the digital age.
