The Copyright Claims Board–What We Know So Far
On Wednesday, February 1, at 1 p.m. ET, the Copyright Alliance—in partnership with 15 Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts (VLA) organizations across the U.S.—will host a Copyright Claims Board (CCB) webinar titled What We Know About the CCB Thus Far.

The event speakers will take an in-depth look at how things are working with the CCB seven months after its launch by the U.S. Copyright Office. There have been interesting developments and challenges that may help guide prospective CCB claimants and respondents, and other interested parties regarding this new copyright small claims tribunal.

Speakers include Maya Burchette, Attorney-Advisor for the CCB; Thomas Maddrey, Chief Legal Officer & Head of National Content and Education for the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP); and Terrica Carrington, Vice President of Legal Policy and Copyright Counsel at the Copyright Alliance. The panel, which will be moderated by Keith Kupferschmid, CEO of the Copyright Alliance, is a must-attend event for anyone who has been following or has an interest in the CCB.
