From the U.S. Copyright/Library of Congress:
Under the Copyright Act, the Copyright Office is responsible for advising the courts on issues of copyright law. This advice manifests itself in many forms. For instance, based on advice received from the Office, the Department of Justice files briefs in federal court on behalf of the federal government on issues of copyright law. In addition, the Copyright Office issues binding opinions on questions of copyright law to the Copyright Royalty Board.
Today, for the first time, the Copyright Office has published at one place on its website an archive of these briefs and legal opinions.
The Office plans to periodically update this archive with new documents and any older documents it discovers.
Filings/Documents are Organized Into the Following Categories:
- Amicus Briefs
- Copyright Royalty Board Questions and Review
- Filings in Response to Section 411 Notices
- Review Board Letters Online
