WASHINGTON, D.C.— The U.S. Chamber’s Global Innovation Policy Center (GIPC) thanks Karyn Temple for her service, first as Associate Register and then as Register of Copyrights. Temple steered the Copyright Office admirably during an important time of transition.

Copyright intensive industries add over a trillion dollars to the American economy. Artists, authors, and creators of all stripes depend on the Copyright Office’s reliable and effective enforcement of the Copyright Act. That is why the U.S. Chamber’s Global Innovation Policy Center supports the modernization of Copyright Office systems, modern copyright rules, and effective copyright enforcement.

The Global Innovation Policy Center wishes Temple the best in her future endeavors. She will not be easy to replace, but the next Register must have the tools to face the modernization needs and legal and policy challenges of the 21st Century.
