WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to a Copyright Office reform proposal released today by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) and Ranking Member John Conyers (D-MI), the following statement can be attributed to NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith:

“NAB appreciates the work of Chairman Goodlatte and Ranking Member Conyers in taking this important step forward in the Judiciary Committee’s review of the copyright law. As proposals from leadership in both the House and Senate Judiciary Committees recognize, a modern Copyright Office is essential to the ability of copyright owners and users to effectively serve consumers in today’s digital marketplace.
