Small Claims Copyright Court coming to the US

Along with the COVID relief package passed in December 2020, the Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement Act (“CASE Act”) was passed into law in the United States. The CASE Act creates a Copyright Claims Board for hearing smaller copyright disputes, including claims under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) for failing to remove allegedly infringing content. Notably, the Board is also able to hear defences such as fair use. Read the entire act here.
