How much creative authorship is sufficient for a work to be copyrightable? To learn more about how the U.S. Copyright Office decides questions of copyrightability, please join the Copyright Office’s newly-appointed General Counsel, Regan Smith, and Associate Register of Copyrights and Director of Public Information and Education, Catherine Zaller Rowland, as they provide an in-depth look at the role of the Office’s Copyright Review Board, recent Board decisions, and litigation against the Office involving registration decisions. The presentation will also provide an overview of the copyright registration and appeals process.
