Section 512 Study Public Roundtable Request to Participate
The U.S. Copyright Office will hold a public roundtable for its study on section 512 on April 8, 2019, at the Library of Congress’s Madison Building in Washington, D.C. The roundtable hearing room will have a limited number of seats for participants and observers. Therefore, each participating entity may designate only one individual to represent it on a particular roundtable session. Depending on the number of requests received, however, a single entity may participate in more than one session. The Office will attempt to accommodate preferences to the greatest extent possible while allowing for a maximum number of viewpoints.
If you are interested in participating in one or more roundtable sessions as a speaker/participant, please provide the information requested in the form below. If more than one individual seeks to participate on behalf of a particular entity, each such individual should complete and submit a participation form. Forms should be submitted electronically through this website no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on March 15, 2019. If an individual is unable to submit the form electronically, please contact Cindy Abramson at [email protected], Kevin Amer at [email protected], or Kimberley Isbell at [email protected] for further instructions.
Note: Use this form only to indicate that you wish to participate in a public roundtable. For those who wish to observe the roundtable without participating at the table, the Office will provide public seating on a first-come, first-served basis on the day of the roundtable. Because space is limited and to allow for a diverse audience, we ask that entities limit observers to one per session.
We apologize in advance if the room reaches its capacity and we are required to deny admittance to late-comers. The proceedings will be recorded and transcribed for the record. Both the recording and the transcription will be posted on the Copyright Office website when they become available. Participants will be asked to complete a release form for the video recording by April 5, 2019.
