It will remain in draft form for 30 days to permit public feedback, and will take effect on December 1, 2015.
From the Document
The Strategic Plan sets forth a roadmap for re-envisioning almost all of the Copyright Office’s services, including how customers register claims, submit deposits, record documents, share data, and access expert resources,” Pallante said. Such broad-ranging modernization efforts are needed to meet the changing needs of individual authors, entrepreneurs, the user community, and the general public.”
