Checking it Out: How the Copyright Claims Board Works for Libraries

Thursday, October 6, 2022 (2pm - 3pm US/Central)

The newly created Copyright Claims Board (“CCB”) is a voluntary tribunal that hears claims for copyright infringement, declarations of noninfringement, and certain misrepresentation claims involving damages of up to $30,000. In this webinar, representatives from the Copyright Office’s Office of the General Counsel and the CCB will explain the CCB’s goal to provide the public with a simple and efficient alternative tribunal for resolving their copyright-related disputes. The experts will describe the basic process for filing, responding to, and resolving these claims. They will also explain how anyone who does not want to use the CCB to resolve their copyright dispute can opt out of participating when a claim is made against them, how qualifying libraries can preemptively opt out of participating in the CCB even before any claim is brought against them, and how to check if your library is already exempt from participating in CCB proceedings.
