Copyright Office Announces Online Public Roundtables for State Sovereign Immunity Study
Issue No. 860 - November 5, 2020

The U.S. Copyright Office has published a Federal Register notice announcing that it will hold public roundtables for its study on state sovereign immunity on December 11, 2020, via Zoom. The Office initiated this study in response to a congressional request that the Office examine whether there is a sufficient basis for legislation abrogating state sovereign immunity when states infringe copyrights. Members of the public who seek to participate in a roundtable should complete and submit the form available on the Office’s website no later than November 16, 2020. The Office will notify participants of their selection and panel assignments shortly thereafter. For additional information, please visit the Office website.
