April 25, 2013 at 9:03 AM (PT)
DIGITAL MUSIC NEWS reports, "last month, the head of the U.S. COPYRIGHT OFFICE urged members of Congress to overhaul current copyright law, and usher in the 'next great copyright act'. That may have started a snowball: on WEDNESDAY, House Judiciary Committee Chairman and VIRGINIA Republican BOB GOODLATTE promised a 'comprehensive review of copyright law' over the next few months, while subtly pointing to re-examinations of statutes like the DMCA."
The speech was delivered ahead of "World Intellectual Property Day" at the Library of Congress, and is posted in its entirety here.
