Copyright Office Seeks Comments on Resale Royalties

The Copyright Office has published a Federal Register notice requesting written comments on how current copyright law affects and supports visual artists and how a federal resale royalty right for visual artists would affect current and future practices of groups or individuals involved in the creation, licensing, sale, exhibition, dissemination, and preservation of works of visual art. Specifically, the Office seeks comments on the means by which visual artists exploit their works under existing law as well as the issues and obstacles that may be encountered when considering a federal resale royalty right in the United States. The notice of inquiry is available at www.copyright.gov/docs/resaleroyalty. Comments are due by 5:00pm EST on November 5, 2012.
