190502 s 1273 h r 2426 caseact congress
May 02, 2019
TO THE MEMBERS OF THE UNITED STATES CONGRESS:
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce supports S. 1273 and H.R. 2426, the “Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement (CASE) Act.” Members who cosponsor this bill will receive credit for the Leadership component of their “How They Voted” rating.
The CASE Act would streamline the process for small copyright claims by creating a small claims board within the U.S. Copyright Office to adjudicate copyright infringement cases. This legislation would provide small businesses and creators with a less burdensome and costly option for defending their intellectual property rights.
We look forward to working with you on this important issue.
