Congressional Leaders Back Independent Copyright Office - PW (Publisehrs' Weekly)

Today, Panzer made another trip to the Publishers' Weekly site. After a little digging around our inquisitive kitty found a post about the Copyright Office.

According to the post by Andrew Albanese, the House Judiciary Committee has proposed making the (U.S.) Copyright Office independent from the Library of Congress. Now, the Copyright Office is controlled by the Librarian of Congress. The change would allow the Copyright Office to have their own budget, technology and leadership control. The Judiciary Committee is now accepting public comments on the proposal.

It's an important job.
Panzer says, "Do you see the number across my nose on the photo at the top of this blog page? The Copyright Office gave that number to the Cats and Crime blog. It shows this is a copyrighted periodical. The Copyright Office keeps track of everybody's copyrights to make sure nothing gets stolen."

Note: This is a medium-sized post. Bring a cup of tea and half a muffin for today's reading selection.
