A hearing to consider a United States government “green paper” as part of the ongoing reform of the US copyright system has been moved to 12 December due to the government shutdown.
A press release announcing the new date and time is available here [pdf]. Public comments are still being accepted, it said.
The hearing had been scheduled for 30 October, and is part of a bigger process, including acceptance of written public comments (IPW, US Policy, 8 October 2013).
Input is being solicited on the US Commerce Department Internet Policy Task Force (IPTF) green paper titled, Copyright Policy, Creativity, and Innovation in the Digital Economy and on a USPTO blog. There was a previous USPTO press release and a Federal Register notice from the USPTO and the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA).
