* NEWS *
WORK MADE FOR HIRE AND COPYRIGHT CORRECTIONS ACT OF 2000 (Senate -
October 12, 2000) (H.R. 5107)
     On October 12 the Senate passed H.R. 5107, legislation to amend
the statutory definition of a "work made for hire," repealing the
amendment to that definition that was made by the Intellectual
Property and Communications Omnibus Reform Act of 1999 (IPCORA).
IPCORA had inserted the words "as a sound recording" into the second
paragraph of the definition of "work made for hire" found in section
101 of the Copyright Act.
     The new amendment makes clear that neither the enactment of the
work made for hire amendment in IPCORA nor the new amendment's
deletion of the language added by IPCORA is to be considered in any
way or otherwise given any effect by a court or the Copyright Office
when interpreting paragraph (2) of the work-made-for-hire definition.
     The purpose of the legislation is to restore status quo as it
existed prior to Nov. 29, 1999 (the date IPCORA was enacted), without
expressing or implying any view as to the proper interpretation of the
work-made-for-hire definition. H.R. 5107 also makes noncontroversial
corrections to the Copyright Act, removing expired sections and
clarifying miscellaneous provisions governing fees and record keeping
procedures.
     This legislation is now before the President for his signature.
