'Perlmutter Addresses Copyright Issues at First House Oversight Hearing' by Blake Brittain

Blake Brittain writes the following for Reuters:

U.S. Copyright Office director Shira Perlmutter told the House Committee on the Judiciary … that she agreed with an office report from before her tenure finding that part of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act had become ‘unbalanced’ and ‘out of sync with Congress’ original intent.’

Perlmutter also outlined the office’s priorities and addressed representatives’ concerns about other aspects of the copyright system during the oversight hearing, including resale rights for artists and the forthcoming Copyright Claims Board. …

Perlmutter began her testimony … by noting the office’s progress in implementing the Music Modernization Act—which among other things will simplify licensing and collecting royalties from streaming music services—modernizing the office’s technology, and preparing to launch the Copyright Claims Board, the office’s small-claims tribunal scheduled to begin operations in December. …

She also said the office’s future priorities included continuing to modernize, opening the copyright system to more participants—focusing on underserved communities—and hiring a chief economist.
