101.3 Functions of the U.S. Copyright Office

101.3 Functions of the U.S. Copyright Office


The functions of the U.S. Copyright Office are set forth in Title 17 of the U.S. Code, which includes the provisions of the Copyright Act of 1976 as well chapters on the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), vessel designs, and other sui generis protections and exemptions (referenced in this Compendium, as the case may require, as “Title 17,” the “DMCA,” or the “Copyright Act,” or with respect to the latter, the “1976 Act” or “Act”). The statute directs the Register of Copyrights, as Director of the U.S. Copyright Office, to carry out a variety of activities, which are described in Sections 101.3 (A) through 101.3 (D).
