CASE Act Comes Up in Congress

Porter Anderson writes in Publishing Perspectives, “Intended to make it easier for rights holders to defend copyrighted work, the CASE Act is getting backing from US publishing’s trade and advocacy organizations,” including the Association of American Publishers and the Authors Guild.

On May 1, the Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement (CASE) Act of 2019 was introduced in the House of Representatives (HR 2426) and in the Senate (S 1273). The Copyright Alliance notes that it would create “a voluntary small claims board within the US Copyright Office that will provide copyright owners with an alternative to the expensive process of bringing copyright claims, including infringement and misrepresentation under 512(f) [of Title 17 in the U.S. Code], in federal court.”
