We understand that the ALI Council will consider Council Draft 2 (CD2) of the Restatement of the Law, Copyright (Copyright Restatement) project at its meeting on October 18-19, 2018. We have had – and continue to have – significant concerns about the project and the work to date. We note that numerous parties have expressed concerns about CD2, including the US Patent and Trademark Office, the American Bar Association’s Section of Intellectual Property Law, academics and other Advisers, and that the US Copyright Office and the New York City Bar Association’s Committee on Copyright and Literary Property have done so with respect to CD1 and previous drafts.
