House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and Courts, Intellectual Property, and the Internet Subcommittee Chairman Howard Coble (R-N.C.) today announced the next round of hearings in the House Judiciary Committee's ongoing review of U.S. copyright law. The next two hearings, which will be held prior to the August district work period, will focus on the positive roles copyrights and technology play in innovation in the U.S.
Chairman Goodlatte and Subcommittee Chairman Coble released the following statement regarding the upcoming hearings: "The copyright and technology sectors are core parts of our nation's economy. They are the job-creating engine that can help rebuild our economy. Over the next several weeks, the Courts, Intellectual Property, and the Internet Subcommittee will hold two hearings that will focus on the important role that both the copyright and technology industries play in our nation. We look forward to hearing from all of the witnesses."
