Register.com v. Verio: Revised Amici Curiae Brief (March 1, 2001)

Amici submit this brief urging that this Court reverse the decision of the trial court (in Register.com v. Verio) which effectively prohibits the copying of facts from a publicly accessible website. Amici represent the interests of many sectors of the computer, software, Internet telecommunications, and information services industries, as well as users of digital information.

Inter-Association Working Group on Government Information Policy

On behalf of the seven member organizations of the Inter-Association Working Group on Government Information Policy, we are pleased to transmit to you the library community's draft bill to amend chapter 19 of U.S.C. title 44. In addition, we offer several recommendations outside of chapter 19 that we believe should be considered in conjunction with any revision of title 44, based on the Joint Committee on Printing's draft bill that was the subject of recent hearings.
