There is a lot of misleading information out there about copyright. On March 27, 2024, the U.S. Copyright Office discussed what is and is not true when it comes to copyright. The Copyright Office wants to make sure you have the facts and know where to go if you need more information.

In this sixty-minute webinar, attendees learned about the Copyright Office's functions, copyright basics, and the Copyright Office's educational resources.

The Copyright Office aims to broaden public awareness of what the copyright system encompasses and how to participate. A cornerstone of our current strategic plan is Copyright for All, and the Office dedicates itself to making the copyright system as understandable and accessible to as many members of the public as possible.

Copyright Office Presents

Copyright Office Presents is a community forum of the U.S. Copyright Office that discusses the practical implications of copyright law in the 21st century, provides education and training to the staff of the U.S. Copyright Office, and offers programming for the public. A wide range of invited speakers - including Congressional leaders, authors and performers, company representatives, legal scholars, and Copyright Office staff - have delivered presentations on issues of topical importance since the series started in 2011. Lectures and events take place at the historic Library of Congress and include discussions on issues such as authorship, copyright registration, marketplace developments, fair use, international norm setting, copyright enforcement, and other issues related to copyright law in the digital age.
