Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden recently announced the appointment of Karyn A. Temple as the 13th United States Register of Copyrights and director of the U.S. Copyright Office, effective March 27, 2019.

As the newly-appointed Register of Copyrights, Temple will lead the nation’s top federal entity responsible for administering U.S. copyright law — impacting visionaries and innovators in art, fashion, film and music.

“The copyright system provides a critical framework to support creativity, culture, innovation,” said Temple.

Temple announced her priorities for the U.S. Copyright Office, including attracting and retaining top talent for the Office, modernizing the Office’s information technology, business and regulatory practices, and continuing to play a key role in shaping copyright policy. Temple plans to release a strategic plan for the U.S. Copyright Office soon. Read more about Temple and her plans for the U.S. Copyright Office here.
