For music and copyright, modernization is the word of the times. While most are familiar with the term Music Modernization Act, some may not realize that the U.S. Copyright Office is also undergoing an administrative technological, and organizational modernization as well.
We will begin this session with Part One: Modernization at the Copyright Office and Music Modernization Act, an overview of a variety of projects that the U.S. Copyright Office has undertaken to modernize its processes, followed by a review of the Music Modernization Act and the creation of the Mechanical Licensing Collective.
Anna B. Chauvet, Esq., Associate General Counsel, US Copyright Office
Regan Smith, Esq., General Counsel and Associate Register of Copyrights, US Copyright Office
In the second half of this session, Part Two: Mechanical Licensing Collective will focus on what attorneys need to know to best advise their music artist clients.
