[Docket No. 2015-01]

Extension of Reply Comment Period: Copyright Protection for 
Certain Visual Works

AGENCY: U.S. Copyright Office, Library of Congress.

ACTION: Extension of reply comment period.


SUMMARY: The Copyright Office is extending the period to submit public 
reply comments regarding its April 24, 2015 Notice of Inquiry 
requesting comments on how certain visual works, particularly 
photographs, graphic artworks, and illustrations, are monetized, 
enforced, and registered under the Copyright Act.

DATE:  Reply comments are due October 1, 2015.

ADDRESSES: All comments should be submitted electronically using the 
comment submission page on the Office Web site at http://copyright.gov/policy/visualworks/. To meet accessibility standards, submitters must 
upload comments in a single file not to exceed six (6) megabytes (MB) 
in one of the following formats: The Adobe Portable Document File (PDF) 
format that contains searchable, accessible text (not an image); 
Microsoft Word; WordPerfect; Rich Text Format (RTF); or ASCII text file 
format (not a scanned document). The form and face of the comments must 
include the submitter's name and organization (if any). The Office will 
post all comments publicly on the Office's Web site exactly as they are 
received, along with names and organizations. If electronic submission 
of comments is not feasible, please contact the Office at 202-707-8350 
for special instructions.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Catherine Rowland, Senior Advisor to 
the Register of Copyrights, by email at [email protected] or by 
telephone at 202-707-8350.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On April 24, 2015, the Copyright Office 
published a Notice of Inquiry inviting public comments on certain 
visual works. The initial comments were due on July 23, 2015 and reply 
comments currently are due on August 24, 2015. It appears, however, 
that some stakeholders may need additional time to file reply comments.

October 1, 2015.
