SIIA Applauds Reintroduction of the CODE Act


WASHINGTON, D.C. (February 7, 2017) – Today, Representatives Judy Chu (D—CA) and Tom Marino (R—PA) re-introduced the Copyright Office for the Digital Economy (CODE) Act.

Mark MacCarthy, Senior Vice President for Public Policy, issued the following statement:

“The CODE Act touches on the same core themes raised by Chairman Goodlatte and Ranking Member Conyers late last year in their thoughtful modernization proposal, and we look forward to working with the Committee and the Administration to make modernization happen this Congress.

“The introduction of this bill represents the bipartisan consensus that the way that the Copyright Office has operated in the past is no longer viable. We commend Representatives Chu and Marino for their efforts.”
