How To Resolve Copyright Disputes: A Q&A on the new Copyright Claims Board and The CASE Act

Discover how to bring your copyright claims to the new Copyright Claims Board, established by The CASE Act!

In 2020, Congress passed the Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement Act, otherwise known as the CASE Act. It established a small claims court-type tribunal within the U.S. Copyright Office - known as the Copyright Claims Board (“CCB”)- which allow copyright owners, like you, to bring claims for copyright infringement, as well as requests for declaratory judgment, in fair use cases in a more cost efficient way. The CCB is set to launch this spring, and it is sure to be a game changer for copyright owners who want to assert their copyright interests but who do not have the means to bring their cases to a federal court.

Please join Copyright Claims Board attorneys Maya Burchette and Dan Booth for an in-depth exploration of the CASE Act and the Copyright Claims Board. At this online event, Maya and Dan will share a 15-20 minute presentation about the CCB, and what it does, and how it works. The presentation will be followed by a 30-minute Q&A, moderated by DG Director of Business Affairs Jessica Lit.

Don't miss this opportunity to learn the ins and outs of how the Copyright Claims Board will work- prior to its launch- so that you can start bringing your copyright claims right away!

This event is sponsored by the Dramatists Legal Defense Fund.
