H.R. 22:23, H.R. 5345, and H.R. 1965 will be placed in the record of the hearings at the conclusion of this statement.
Article I, section 8 of the Federal Constitution empowers Congress "to promote the progress of science and useful arts, by securing to authors * ** the exclusive right to their * * * writings ***" At the very least, therefore, Congress has the constitutional obligation to determine whether and to what extent the progress of the useful arts will be promoted by congressional grants of exclusivity for the writings of authors.
The purpose of the pending legislation is, in short, to bring up to date the copyright law which has not been substantially revised since 1909. It should be our commitment to correct this neglect, for the great and growing acceleration of technology and the resultant new uses of copyrighted works have rendered much of the existing law inadequate and obsolete.
The subcommittee is pleased, this morning, to open the hearings by welcoming witnesses from the Library of ('ongress. We have the Honorable John G. Lorenz, Acting Librarian of (ongress; Abraham L. Kaminstein, former Register of Copyrights who went through the 1963-67 hearings with us, and Barbara Ringer, also an old friend, the present Register of Copyrights. Mr. Lorenz, will you begin!
(II.R. 2:123, ILR. 5315, and II.R. 1963 are as follows:]
