Congress will be in recess from December 16 to January 3 and the controversial Librarian of Congress gets to appoint a new head of the Copyright Office to replace Maria Pallante who was fired by the Librarian on October 21 in what looks to many like an actionable constructive termination. We think that the Librarian will avoid consulting with Congress about who she will appoint to run the Copyright Office because she’s gone rogue.
What better time to get her way (at least until Congress undoes her appointment) than to appoint the new Register during the upcoming Congressional holiday recess? So we wanted to let you in on the office pool for which day she’ll make the appointment!
