Speaker: Jacqueline C. Charlesworth

Jacqueline Charlesworth will present hot topics in music licensing. Come and tune in to hear the latest in the ongoing debate over the DOJ's 100% licensing mandate for ASCAP and BMI, an update on recent developments in litigation over pre-72 sound recordings, and efforts to modernize the mechanical compulsory license.

Jacqueline C. Charlesworth, an attorney at the law firm Covington & Burling, practices intellectual property law, with an emphasis on copyright issues. Before joining Covington’s New York office, she served for three years as General Counsel and Associate Register of Copyrights at the U.S. Copyright Office in Washington, D.C.

While at the Copyright Office, Ms. Charlesworth had primary responsibility for interpretation of the U.S. Copyright Act. As General Counsel she oversaw a wide range of litigation, legislative, regulatory, and policy matters, including the Office’s participation in cases before the U.S. Supreme Court, rulemaking proceedings under the DMCA and other provisions, legal review of Copyright Royalty Board decisions, the administration of statutory cable, satellite, and music licenses, and copyright registration and termination issues. She also advised Congress on copyright-related legislation and policy concerns.

Before joining the Copyright Office, Ms. Charlesworth was in private practice, where she handled IP-related litigation and transactional matters. Prior to that, she served as Senior Vice President and General Counsel of the National Music Publishers’ Association and Senior Vice President and General Counsel of The Harry Fox Agency.

Ms. Charlesworth received a B.A. from Brown University and a J.D. from Yale Law School, where she was an Executive Committee Editor of The Yale Law Journal and a founding member of the Yale Journal of Law & Feminism. Following law school, she clerked for Judge Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York and Judge Betty B. Fletcher of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
