House Passed Bill to Create Copyright Small Claims Court 1

Screen Shot 2019-10-23 at 2.11.18 PMThe CASE Act passed through the House of Representatives last night by a landslide vote 410 – 6.

The CASE Act creates a small claims court within the Copyright Office to provide copyright owners with an alternative to battling copyright infringement in federal court (which is expensive and often cost prohibitive for many creators).  The bill still needs to pass through the Senate and be signed by the President.

The text of CASE Act H.R. 2426 is available at: https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/2426/text.  More information is available at: https://copyrightalliance.org/news-events/press-releases/house-pass-case-act/
