The Author’s Guild is strongly encouraging writers and other creators to participate. The survey provides no background on what the responsibilities of the Register are or even what the Copyright Office does, but it’s important that the Library hear from us, as individual authors, on how the Register will best serve the independent creative community. Here is some background on the role and responsibilities of the Copyright Office.
The online survey is available here, will be open to the public through January 31, 2017.
The Author’s Guild has also taken the liberty of composing a variety of sample responses, which you can find online at http://us10.campaign-archive2.com/?u=727ad03949c981c140a2bf125&id=4b954f9fc8&e=c4f927c2d5 . But keep in mind that a variety of responses, written in each author’s own words, is likely to be more persuasive than a series of identical responses.
Thank you, Joni Sensel, for passing on this very important information.
