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.
