“An Introduction to the Copyright Claims Board"

Speaker:   Whitney Levandusky, US Copyright Office

This presentation will introduce the Copyright Claims Board as it comes online in 2022 and how it may be useful to you and your clients.  What can you do if you are involved in a relatively small copyright dispute? You could bring a lawsuit in federal court, but federal litigation can be costly and time consuming. You may find that the cost of a federal lawsuit greatly outweighs any money you could be awarded or ordered to pay. To help people who find themselves in this situation, Congress passed the Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement Act of 2020 (CASE Act). The law establishes the Copyright Claims Board (CCB), a tribunal in the Copyright Office that will provide an efficient and user-friendly option to resolve small copyright claims.
