Emergent Works

Boyden, Bruce E.

Nineteen sixty-four was a very important year for the Copyright Office. The copyright revision effort that would eventually become the Copyright Act of 1976 was in full swing; draft bills that largely resembled the final Act were introduced in July. The goal of this effort was to update the old 1909 Act to fully account for the incredible proliferation of mass media. Just as that effort was shifting to Congress, however, over at the Copyright Office, the first harbinger of a new set of problems was sounding: the Office issued its first registrations for computer programs.
