Comments to the DOC on Copyright Policy, Creativity and Innovation in the Internet Economy

October 27, 2010

ITIF has filed these comments in response to the Notice of Inquiry from the Depart of Commerce’s Internet Policy Task Force seeking input on the challenges of protecting copyrighted works online and the relationship between copyrights and innovation in the Internet Economy. In these comments, ITIF argues that unchecked digital piracy is a threat to the economic welfare of the United States and that more can, and should, be done to limit unauthorized use of copyrighted content online.
