The U.S. Department of Commerce’s Internet Policy Task Force invites public comments on its report, “Copyright Policy, Creativity, and Innovation in the Digital Economy.” The 122-page report provides an analysis of copyright policy since 1995, recommends possible regulatory and legislative actions, and identifies specific policy issues for further discussion and public input. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) provided input to the report. The Internet Policy Task Force will accept written comments until November 13, 2013.

A public meeting to discuss various copyright policy issues raised in the report has been rescheduled for December 12, 2013. The agenda for the meeting will be posted on the International Policy Task Force website.
