House Judiciary Chairman to launch sweeping review of US copyright law

Something to keep an eye on:

From http://thehill.com/blogs/hillicon-valley/technology/295979-house-judiciary-ch:

House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) said Wednesday that his committee will launch a sweeping review of the country's copyright law and hold a series of hearings on the matter "in the months ahead."
...
During his comments, Goodlatte touched on a range of copyright challenges that policymakers are currently grappling with, including online piracy, orphan works and music licensing.
...

Goodlatte was a sponsor of the ill-fated Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), which was authored by the former chairman of the Judiciary Committee, Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas).
