The United States Copyright Office has undertaken a study to "evaluate the effectiveness of the existing methods of licensing music." NSAI recently submitted comments answering specific questions from the Copyright Office relatign to this issue. U.S. Register of Copyrights, Maria Pallante, is expected to testify before Congress in a few months to give her thoughts on this study after reviewing all comment submissions.
