June 2022 Update: Copyright Small Claims Court Launched
By Jeffrey E. Jacobson, Esq.
As explored early last year, the Copyright Claims Board (CCB) created by the CASE Act will start accepting claims on June 16, 2022. Claims for copyright infringement and misrepresentation will be accepted by the CCB. The initial filing fee is $40, followed by another $60 charge if the respondent does not “opt out” of the procedure. Claims up to $30,000 will be entertained and attorneys fees may be awarded. Mini cases for claims of $5000 will also be entertained. No depositions and expedited discover are permitted as part of this new procedure.
