ANSI Applauds Copyright-Protection Ruling

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) announced its approval of a recent U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruling that a group of other organizations’ standards would not enter the public domain when being incorporated by reference into federal regulations, therefore keeping their copyright protections.

“The decision represents a victory for the standards community and prevents Public.Resource.Org from posting standards developing organization (SDO)-copyrighted codes and standards to its public website,” according to the press release. “The ruling supports ANSI members and the standards ecosystem, and enables the plaintiffs to continue to develop high-quality voluntary consensus standards that support federal, state, and local agencies. These standards help assure health, safety, and quality of life for millions of individuals worldwide.”

For more information, read the press release.
