New U.S. copyright bill could create Copyright Claims Board at the US Copyright Office. The bill is aimed at reducing costs and burden for creators defending their intellectual property.
Democrat congressman Hakeem Jeffries proposed the Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement (CASE) act on 1 May. Joining Jeffries in his aim is Republican congressman Doug Collins.
Many US organizations are supposedly supporting the bill, including the American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA), the Copyright Alliance and the Songwriters Guild of America.
