Public Interest Groups Tell Copyright Office To Stay Out of Buffer Dispute

Public Interest Groups Tell Copyright Office To Stay Out of Buffer Dispute

The U.S. Copyright Office should allow the courts to decide the crucial issue of whether a temporary copy of a song or other copyrighted work made by a computer must be subject to copyright royalties, public interest and industry groups said today.

The Copyright Office should not try to decide the issue, a group of public interest groups led by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), Public Knowledge (PK) and the Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT) said in a filing with the Office in response to a proposed rule published July 16. In addition, Consumers Union, Consumer Federation of America, U.S. PIRG, and the Computer & Communications Industry Association also signed onto the pleading.
