Press Release: Statement of Congressman Rick Boucher: “Pay-Per-Use” Society One Step Closer

I regret the decision of the Librarian of Congress, acting upon the recommendation of the Register of Copyrights, to reject the recommendations of the Administration, concerned Members of Congress, universities and libraries in announcing a decision that does not protect traditional fair use rights. This disappointing decision has moved our Nation one step closer to a “pay-per-use” society that threatens to advance the narrow interests of copyright owners over the broader public interest of information consumers.
