Post-Hearing Questions


Following the hearings in April 2018, the Copyright Office sent follow-up questions to the witnesses who testified at the hearings. Participants who submitted written comments for a particular class, but did not testify at the public hearing for that class, may also respond to the Office’s follow-up questions, but are not required to do so. Upon request, a participant may request a rough draft copy of a transcript for the class to which the participant intends to respond to the Office’s post-hearing question(s). When they become available, participants’ responses to the post-hearing questions will be posted on this page.
