The Copyright Society of the United States of America
The Society is a center of the American copyright community for the bar, for industry and for law schools. Its primary function is the gathering, dissemination and interchange of information concerning protection and use of rights in intellectual property. The Society also seeks to promote better understanding of copyright and the vital importance of legal and economic protection of intellectual property generally and copyright in particular. To accomplish these goals, The Society has undertaken a wide-ranging program which has expanded and become more intensive with the passage of the general revision of the Copyright Law in 1976. The Society is a major contributor to the interpretation and application of the Copyright Law, both for the industries, institutions and users as they work with the law and the legal community as it tests, applies and interprets it.
