NATIONAL AERONAUTICS AND SPACE ADMINISTRATION On June 3, 2020, the U.S. Copyright Office issued a notice of inquiry (‘‘NOI’’) commencing a policy study on state sovereign immunity from copyright infringement suits.1 Congress has requested that the Office ‘‘research this issue to determine whether there is sufficient basis for federal legislation abrogating State sovereign immunity when States infringe copyrights.’’ 2 To assist Congress in making that assessment, the Office solicited public comment on several issues concerning the degree to which copyright owners face infringement from state actors today, whether such infringement is based on intentional or reckless conduct, and what remedies, if any, are available to copyright owners under state law. To ensure that members of the public have sufficient time to comment, and to ensure that the Office has the benefit of a complete record, the Office is extending the deadline for the submission of comments to 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on September 2, 2020. The Office has also determined that interested parties should be given an opportunity to address any comments submitted in response to the NOI. In addition, as noted in the NOI,3 the Office is seeking to provide sufficient time for parties engaged in empirical research in this area to complete and submit their findings. Accordingly, the Office is providing for a second round of written comments. Additional comments must be submitted no later than October 2, 2020. In general, these comments should be limited to issues or concerns presented in the initial comments. The Office will, however, consider any empirical research submitted by the October 2 deadline as part of the record in this proceeding. AGENCY: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated: June 22, 2020.
