The CASE Act's Copyright Claims Board Needs to Fill Three Officer Positions

To begin its implementation of the Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement (CASE) Act of 2020, the U.S. Copyright Office posted on its NewsNet notification system that it is seeking three copyright claims officers to serve on the Copyright Claims Board—“an alternative forum housed within the Copyright Office that parties may use to resolve certain disputes regarding copyright claims with a relatively low economic value (small copyright claims).”

Candidates must have substantial familiarity with copyright law; one officer will have alternative dispute resolution experience, and the other two will have experience in the evaluation, litigation, or adjudication of copyright infringement claims. The Librarian of Congress will appoint the officers based on the recommendation of the Register of Copyrights: one for a 4-year term, one for a 5-year term, and one for a 6-year term.

For more information, read the NewsNet alert (issue 887).
