Lois WasoffAt a moment in American political life when so much about Washington seems dysfunctional, the prospects for copyright reform of any hue – red, blue, or some shade between – appear far off. Yet according to Lois Wasoff, a leading copyright and publishing attorney, “What’s fascinating about copyright is that it doesn’t break down along those lines. There are Democrats and Republicans who are strong proponents of copyright protection, and there are Democrats and Republicans who see issues about copyright and want to see changes made.”

In an interview with Chris Kenneally during a break at OnCopyright2010, Wasoff predicted, “We could see some legislative activity in the next couple of years [over copyright reform] because it may be possible for people to depart from their political party positions and think about issues in a different context.”
