The Copyright Board is an administrative agency which, among other things, sets the royalties to be paid for certain uses of works protected by copyright. The Board speaks in its decisions, all of which are published. It has no mandate to give legal advice to private persons or corporations or to government agencies. For advice concerning specific matters, it is recommended to consult a practicing lawyer who is specialized in intellectual property.
