Copyright Bill Passes House

A bipartisan bill co-sponsored by Rep. Ben Cline, H.R. 2426, the Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement (CASE) Act passed the House last week with near unanimous support.

This legislation, which was introduced by Cline and Representatives Hakeem Jeffries, Doug Collins and Jerrold Nadler, would create a Copyright Claims Board within the Copyright Office to provide for an efficient and less expensive forum for small creators to better enforce their rights.

“The CASE Act is a much-needed solution for copyright claims that are small in nature but nevertheless important for the copyright holders it intends to help,” Cline said. “The passage of this bill is a win for copyright and small business owners as it establishes a low-cost method for such owners to settle claims and protect their works from infringement.”
