Workshop: Claims Before the Copyright Claims Board
June 27, 2023
About this event
The Copyright Claims Board (Board) is an alternative forum to federal court to resolve copyright disputes involving damages up to $30,000. The Board opened its doors one year ago, in June 2022, and this workshop is designed to provide guidance on how to successfully file a claim. Join the Center for Art Law and Laura Kaiser, U.S Copyright Office, Copyright Claims Board, as we discuss what types of claims the Board can hear, the ins and outs of eCCB (the Board’s electronic case filing system), and common issues we are seeing during the compliance review process.
