     NewsNet Issue 675August 16, 2017 Copyright Office Proposes Rule to Simplify Deposit Requirements for Certain Literary Works and Musical Compositions The United States Copyright Office is proposing to amend the regulations governing the deposit requirements for certain types of published literary works and musical compositions to require the deposit of a single copy rather than two copies. The proposed rule will apply to certain literary monographs (as defined in the rule) and musical compositions published in print formats. Additionally, the proposed rule clarifies the deposit requirements for musical compositions published both in print and phonorecord formats to require the submission of the print version for purposes of copyright registration. These changes will improve the efficiency of registration and mandatory deposit for both the Office and copyright owners alike while continuing to make these works available to the Library of Congress when needed for use in its collections or other disposition. The notice of proposed rulemaking and instructions on how to submit a comment are available here. Written comments must be received no later than October 2, 2017, at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time.

     NewsNet Issue 673June 30, 2017 U.S. Copyright Office Announces Start of Seventh Triennial Rulemaking Proceeding Under Section 1201 The Copyright Office has published a notice of inquiry and request for petitions initiating the seventh triennial rulemaking proceeding under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), 17 U.S.C. § 1201. Section 1201 provides that the Librarian of Congress, upon the recommendation of the Register of Copyrights, may adopt temporary exemptions to the DMCA’s prohibition against circumvention of technological measures that control access to copyrighted works. The ultimate goal of the proceeding is to determine whether there are particular classes of works as to which users are, or are likely to be in the next three years, adversely affected in their ability to make noninfringing uses due to the prohibition on circumventing access controls. When such classes are identified, the Librarian promulgates regulations exempting the classes from the prohibition for the succeeding three-year period. For this proceeding, the Office is establishing a new, streamlined procedure for the renewal of exemptions that were granted during the sixth triennial rulemaking. If renewed, those current exemptions would remain in force for an additional three-year period (October 2018–October 2021). The notice of inquiry requests for interested parties to submit written petitions for renewal of current exemptions by July 31, 2017, written comments in response to any petitions for renewal by September 13, 2017, and written petitions proposing new exemptions by September 13, 2017.
