Who works in copyright law? Obviously entertainment and new media lawyers. Others include the 450 civil servants in the U.S. Copyright Office, those who research and establish copyright reform policy for the government, people in international organizations such as WIPO that administers copyright treaties. Lobbyists (for copyright reform), academics and economists, publishers, librarians, and those in museums, colleges, and archives all have positions with a copyright function.
The Copyright & New Media Law Newsletter — Special Issue on Jobs (Volume 2010, Issue 2) interviewed people in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. who work in copyright and licensing positions in educational institutions, government, trade associations, cultural institutions, and copyright organizations. We asked them questions relating to job titles, typical duties, issues addressed regularly, education requirements for performing copyright and licensing duties, and more.
