September 24, 1965. Mr. HERBERT FUCHS, Cannon House Office Building, Washington, D.C.
DEAR MR. Fuchs: We endorse the present efforts to bring the copyright law up to date, and we view with a sense of urgency the need to provide legislation that is meaningful and effective.
On behalf of Xerox Corp., I want to express our firm conviction that the protection of legitimate rights of authors in their works is vital to the dissemination and exchange of information. Without adequate protection of these rights, many sources of valuable information would be unable to survive; their contributions to human knowledge would be lost. Moreover, failure to assure proper protettion of copyrights would significantly reduce the incentive to creativity. To us. it appears self-evident, therefore, that sound copyright legislation is indispensable to the enrichment of our society.
Accordingly, we vigorously support H.R. 4347 now under consideration. In our judgment this bill would provide a significant and necessary improvement over existing legislation, particularly in regard to the definition of the subject matter and scope of copyright, the notice provisions, and the extended duration of copyright. In addition, the provision relating to fair use included in this bill is far superior to that included in the bill introduced in the 88th Congress. By recognizing fair use without attempting to define its scope, the present bill is seen to permit a continued reasonable judicial development of this doctrine to meet changing conditions and needs.
Deeply involved as our company is in the field of communications, both as a manufacturer of copying equipment and as a publisher of books and other educational materials, we can appreciate the diversity of interests affected by copyright.
One of the most complex problems in this regard arises from modern technological advances in reprography. A great deal of imaginative thinking and sincere cooperation will be required to devise a workable system which will guar. antee legitimate compensation to copyright owners, yet avoid unreasonable restrictions to the free flow of information.
Satisfactory solutions to problems of this nature are rarely provided by legislation, and it is best for all interests concerned that the present bill make no attempt to do so. A voluntary system acceptable to all fair-minded parties is called for. We at Xerox shall continue to study every proposal advanced for accommodating interested groups as we have done in the past. Moreover, we intend to intensify our efforts to devise a workable system and to cooperate fully with others attempting to do so. Sincerely,
J. C. WILSON, President.
