The Librarian of Congress Appoints the Next Register of Copyrights

The U.S. Copyright Office announced the following:

Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden announced today that she has appointed Shira Perlmutter as Register of Copyrights and director of the U.S. Copyright Office.

‘I am pleased to announce that Shira Perlmutter will serve as the 14th United States Register of Copyrights,’ said Hayden. ‘Shira brings to this role a deep knowledge of domestic and international copyright law and policy and a background in negotiating international intellectual property agreements. She has experience working with a wide range of stakeholders and finding common ground on complex issues.’

Perlmutter will step into the role of Register of Copyrights in late October and will assume leadership of the organization during its 150th anniversary year.

‘I’m honored to have the opportunity to lead the U.S. Copyright Office during its 150th year,’ said Perlmutter. ‘I look forward to working with Dr. Hayden and [with] the dedicated staff of the Copyright Office on its mission of promoting the creation and dissemination of works of authorship to the benefit of the American public.’ …

Perlmutter has served since 2012 as chief policy officer and director for international affairs at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), working in all areas of intellectual property, including copyright.
