Copyright Claims Board is now operational

Starting in June 2022, the Copyright Claims Board allows copyright owners to seek damage for copyright violations of up to $30,000 USD.  This was designed to be a simpler, more equitable way for copyright owners to secure payment for damages without the burden of filing a claim in federal court, which can be a very lengthy and expensive process.  Many librarians and other copyright advocates fear the CCB may be misused.  Unknowing users could find themselves with significant legal judgments levied against them.  Our partners at the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) have developed a CASE Act Toolkit to assist libraries in developing resources in response to this new process.
