The Copyright Society of the U.S.A. is the primary scholarly society dedicated to the study of copyright law in the United States.[1]

The Copyright Society of the USA was established in 1953, by a number of copyright scholars and lawyers including Charles B. Seton (1910-2005).

The Society publishes a long-running journal, the Journal of the Copyright Society of the USA.[2] The Society also hosts annual and midwinter meetings, as well as a variety of educational sessions in its regional chapters. The organization has approximately eleven chapters throughout the country, and is headquartered in New York.[3] The Society hosts the annual "Donald C. Brace Memorial Lecture" (named after Donald Brace, one of the founders of the Harcourt, Brace & Co. publishing company),[4] and presents the annual "Seton Award" for scholarship by a young lawyer (under 40).[5]
