Frank Cullen, Vice President of U.S. Policy at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Global Innovation Policy Center (GIPC), issued the following statement today about the introduction of the Copyright Alternative in Small Claims Enforcement Act (CASE Act).
“The U.S. Chamber of Commerce commends the introduction of the Copyright Alternative in Small Claims Enforcement Act (CASE Act) to streamline the process for small copyright claims. The CASE Act will provide small businesses and creators who are victims of infringement, but cannot afford litigation to enforce their rights, a voluntary dispute resolution forum for right holders. Members who cosponsor this bill will receive credit with the Chamber’s scorecard. We applaud Representatives Kevin Jeffries and Doug Collins, and Senators Tillis, and Hirono, for their work in ensuring that small businesses and creators, the cornerstone of the country’s economy, are supported and protected.”
