Comments on Copyright Office Mass Digitization Proposal

I submitted comments on behalf of the Boston Library Consortium today to the Copyright Office in its “Notice of Inquiry  on Mass Digitization“, and the Copyright Office’s proposal of an Extended Collective Licensing regime.

Thanks to Terry Burton, Ryan Maloney, Charlotte Roh, and Jeremy Smith, for helpful editing; to Robert Cox (UMass Amherst) and Christian Dupont (Boston College) for supplying project details; and to Susan Stearns for leading the charge for BLC to speak out on this important issue.
