The U.S. Copyright Office will present a Copyright Matters program on July 29, 2013, at 10:00 a.m. Entitled Copyright Conversations with the United Kingdom, the program will be held in the Library of Congress Mumford Room, located on the 6th floor of the James Madison Memorial Building, 101 Independence Avenue SE, Washington, D.C. Please allow time to enter the building and pass through security. The Mumford Room is accessible through the central elevator bank, closest to Independence Avenue.

The program will feature John Alty, chief executive officer and comptroller general of the Intellectual Property Office of the United Kingdom as well as Neil Feinson, director of international policy and Adam Williams, deputy director of international policy. In a conversation with Register of Copyrights Maria A. Pallante and senior officials of the U.S. Copyright Office, the panelists will discuss current copyright policy issues facing the United Kingdom and the United States, such as orphan works, extended collective licensing, small claims and recent efforts in both countries to update the copyright legal system for the digital age. The event is free and open to the public.
