Copyright
The Council approved §§ 1.02, 1.06, 1.07, 1.08, 2.01, and 2.02 of Council Draft No. 2, subject to the discussion at the meeting and the usual editorial prerogative. During the discussion, the Reporters described their planned revisions to the material to address comments received on the draft, and agreed that § 2.01 may require updating after §§ 2.06 and 2.07 are reviewed by the Council, due to the cross-references to those Sections. The Reporters will revise the approved Sections in accordance with the discussion at the meeting and the revised material will be included in the next Council Draft for reference.

The Council also discussed § 2.07, which will be revised for consideration at a future Council meeting. In addition, the Council provided feedback on § 1.01, which was included in the draft for discussion only.
