EFF Urges Public to Contact Senators About Register of Copyrights Bill

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) put out a call for people to ask their senators not to vote for the Register of Copyrights Selection and Accountability Act of 2017, which has already passed in the House of Representatives. It says, “The Senate is considering passing a bill which would turn the Register of Copyrights into a presidential appointee. The work of the Register is done best when it is not politicized”—“registering copyrightable works and providing information on copyright law to the government. Neither of these jobs is best served by a Register that is subject to the President’s agenda.”
