The Department of Commerce’s Internet Policy Task Force is pleased to announce a public meeting on Developing the Digital Marketplace for Copyrighted Works, to be held on December 9, 2016, at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia. Additional “watch parties” will be held at USPTO regional offices in Denver, Dallas, and Silicon Valley.
The Task Force is convening the meeting to facilitate constructive, cross-industry dialogue among stakeholders about ways to promote a more robust and collaborative digital marketplace for copyrighted works. The meeting will focus on initiatives in this space that relate to standards development, interoperability across digital registries, and cross-industry collaboration, to understand the current state of affairs, identify challenges, and discuss paths forward. It will also be an opportunity to explore potential approaches to the future adoption and integration into the online marketplace of relevant emerging technologies, such as blockchain technology and open-source platforms. The goal is to provide a platform for discussion, and to determine in what ways government can be of assistance. One outcome could be to establish working groups to tackle specific issues through a multi-stakeholder process.
The meeting will include panel sessions in the morning, an exhibition hall to showcase initiatives during lunchtime, and breakout sessions and a plenary discussion in the afternoon. Members of the public will have opportunities to participate.
Registration: There is no fee to register for the Public Meeting.
