Taylor Swift, Matt Drudge and U.S. Copyright Law
Nancy Mertzel was quoted in Investor's Business Daily about how U.S. copyright law is ill-equipped to handle modern Internet functionality, as Congress begins considering the most sweeping reform of copyright law since 1976. In the meantime, Mertzel said "the biggest thing we're going to see is the notion of digital technology pushing up against the boundaries of copyright law." She added, "There will be more cases that require judges to figure out a balance between wanting to encourage new technology and content, but also authorship, so creators are incentivized."
