U.S. Copyright Office Legal Process Changes

On June 30, 2004, the U.S. Copyright Office published a final rule concerning legal processes governing procedures for the service of process on the Copyright Office, the Register of Copyrights or an employee of the Copyright Office acting in his or her official capacity and the production of Office documents and testimony of Office employees in legal proceedings. These regulations will serve as a statement of Office policy and provide comprehensive guidelines for the Office and its employees, outside agencies, and other persons regarding the appropriate procedures in these areas.  The new rule becomes effective July 30, 2004.
