Virginia University Libraries: Copyright Rewrite Could Harm Mission

George Mason University - Tue, 08/16/2016 - 21:27

Five Virginia university library directors are telling Congress that copyright revision could threaten the core mission of the Commonwealth’s academic research libraries.

As stated in a UVA Libraries news release, the Copyright Office is set to unveil a potentially damaging rewrite of key parts of the Copyright Act despite stiff opposition from libraries themselves. The Library Deans and Directors at five Virginia universities—John Unsworth of the University of Virginia, Carrie Cooper of the College of William and Mary, John Zenelis of George Mason University, John Ulmschneider of Virginia Commonwealth University, and Tyler Walters of Virginia Tech—urged caution in a letter sent this week to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA). The letter warns that a Copyright Office proposal could trigger a lengthy, costly, and contentious legislative process not justified by library needs.
