CDT and W3C Urge Copyright Office to Use Open Standards
CDT is urging the US Copyright Office to follow federal government policy and design its Web site forms to open Internet and Web standards. The Copyright Office requested comments on its plan to launch a public Web site that would initially only be accessible to users of one popular Web browser. Under the proposal, the Copyright Office would have designed the site to work with other browsers in the months after the site went up. CDT's comments echoed those of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), the main standard setting body for the Web.
