The CASE Act for In-House Counsel: How In-House Counsel Can Leverage the New Copyright Small Claims Court in a Program to Right-Size Enforcement

Event Description

The Copyright Alternative in Small Claims Enforcement Act (CASE Act) was signed into law on December 27, 2020, as part of the Omnibus COVID-19 Relief Bill. The CASE Act establishes a completely new forum for resolution of small copyright disputes, the Copyright Claims Board (CCB), in which parties may voluntarily resolve copyright disputes in front of a three-judge panel of officers. The CCB is intended to provide a streamlined and less expensive forum for small copyright disputes, with civil claims and counterclaims capped at $30,000 in actual or statutory damages.

 

Will this voluntary, limited-remedy forum significantly impact the current landscape for copyright litigation? What place can the CCB occupy in a company’s holistic enforcement program?  How can in-house counsel leverage this forum as part of a holistic enforcement program in the future to right-size enforcement and maximize the return on their investment in enforcement?

 

Join us for the next installment of our IHC Deep Dives Series, as Kirkland & Ellis LLP Intellectual Property partners Allison Buchner and Lauren Schweitzer discuss:

– the Copyright Small Claims Court’s unique properties;

– the Pros and Cons for Respondents; and

– how in-house counsel can integrate it into a holistic copyright enforcement program aimed at right-sizing enforcement efforts for the matter at hand.

 

After the presentation, all attendees are invited to participate in virtual networking via breakout rooms with Allison and Lauren, as well as other Kirkland & Ellis attorneys.
