U.S. Copyright Office Further Extends Comment Period for Copyright Claims Board Initiating Proceedings Rulemaking
Issue No. 934 - November 10, 2021
On September 29, 2021, the U.S. Copyright Office issued a notice of proposed rulemaking seeking public comment on a broad range of procedures governing the initial stages of proceedings before the Copyright Claims Board. On October 27, 2021, the Office extended the comment period by two weeks. In response to stakeholder requests following that extension, the Office is now further extending the deadlines for submission of comments. Initial comments must be received no later than 11:59 p.m. eastern time on November 30, 2021, and reply comments must be received no later than 11:59 p.m. eastern time on December 15, 2021.
A formal notice announcing the extensions will be published in the Federal Register. The Office does not intend to grant further extensions in this proceeding.
