Copyright Office Seeks Comments on Technological Upgrades to Registration and Recordation Functions

The Copyright Office is in the process of identifying and evaluating potential improvements and technical enhancements to the information technology platforms that support its registration and recordation functions. The Office seeks comments on how stakeholders use the current online system for registering claims to copyright and recording documents and how this system meets user expectations. In addition, the Office wants to know how stakeholders would like to interact with the Office electronically in the future, that is, what online services the stakeholders would like to have. A comment form is posted on the Copyright Office website at www.copyright.gov/docs/technical_upgrades. Comments are due on May 21, 2013.
