Congress Introduces Much-Needed Copyright Office Reform Legislation

This week, the Chairmen and Ranking Members of both the Senate and House Judiciary committees introduced important legislation - the Register of Copyrights Selection and Accountability Act - which makes the U.S. Register of Copyrights a position appointed by the president subject to Senate confirmation.

CFIF applauds this much-needed proposal to modernize the U.S. Copyright Office in order to meet the new challenges of the 21st century.

Strong copyright protection constitutes a core component of our domestic economy, and our world-leading creative community in particular.  As we at CFIF have often emphasized, it is not by coincidence that the U.S. stands unrivaled as the most creative, innovative, prosperous and powerful nation in human history while consistently maintaining the world…[more]

CFIF Ad: Reform the Tax Code Now! Print
Thursday, February 16 2017

ALEXANDRIA, VA — In a full-page print ad in The Weekly Standard and Washington Examiner, the Center for Individual Freedom ("CFIF") is reminding Congress that “the tax code isn’t working for America” and urging policymakers to “reform the tax code now!”

“With a 35% corporate tax rate—the highest among OECD countries—and a code that is needlessly complicated and riddled with loopholes, the current U.S. tax code is broken,” the ad reads. “Congress can help America’s companies and workers compete by making the tax code simpler, closing the loopholes and setting a rate that is fair.”

The ad is the latest in a series that CFIF has run in support of comprehensive tax reform. (See here and here.)

“At a time when polarization severely plagues our political discourse, there is perhaps no issue more unifying than the urgent need for comprehensive tax reform,” said CFIF President Jeffrey Mazzella. “With its enormous complexity and sky-high rates, the U.S. tax code actively stifles growth, entrepreneurship, innovation, investment and job creation.  There is no excuse not to act. The time to reform the tax code is now.”
