IFRRO submission on US Mass Digitalization consultation

IFRRO has responded positively to the US Copyright Office’s mass digitization consultation.  The IFRRO submission supports the Copyright Office’s proposed approach, that ways to facilitate large-scale digitisation of copyright works be explored through a pilot program, which involves relevant stakeholders. It further shares relevant experience from other similar initiatives and, in particular on the use of the Extended Collective Licensing (ECL) to support large-scale digitisation, which is the legal technique that we understand that the Copyright Office wishes to consider in support of large-scale digitisation projects in the US.
