The Copyright Web site ( is maintained by the Legislation Committee of MLA as a resource for anyone interested in issues of copyright as they apply to the fields of music and music librarianship.


The editor of the Copyright Web site solicits and develops content for the Copyright for Music Librarians site in collaboration with the MLA Legislation Committee, the MLA Web Manager, and the MLA Board and keeps content current.  The editor responds to queries sent to Copyright Web Site Editor, or forwards them to the Chair of the Legislation Committee for further consideration. The editor submits three reports to the President each year: the Annual Report (see section VI.D.7.), due prior to the Annual Meeting; a Spring report, due prior to the Board’s Spring meeting (usually May); and a Fall report, due prior to the Board’s Fall meeting (usually September) and sends copies to the chair of the Publications Committee. The editor serves as a member of MLA’s Publications Committee and receives gratis MLA regular membership and MLA annual meeting early-regular-member registration.  (rev. 7/2011) (rev. 3/2014)
