The U.S. Copyright Office's Office of Policy and International Affairs (PIA) is a federal, legislative-branch agency that is part of the Library of Congress. It is headed by the Associate Register of Copyrights and Director of Policy and International Affairs, who is an expert copyright attorney and one of four legal advisors to the Register of Copyrights.
This Office assists the Register with critical policy functions of the U.S. Copyright Office, including domestic and international policy analyses, legislative support, and trade negotiations. PIA represents the U.S. Copyright Office at meetings of government officials concerned with international aspects of intellectual property protection, and provides regular support to Congress and its committees on statutory amendments and construction.
