A SPECIAL TALK WITH CONGRESSMAN

HAKEEM JEFFRIES

Discussing the CASE Act and other copyright issues



The LA Copyright Society is thrilled to announce that Congressman Hakeem Jeffries will be speaking to us on Wednesday, September 29th.

Congressman Jeffries is the Chair of the House Democratic Caucus and a member of the Judiciary and Budget Committees.

Among his many legislative achievements, Congressman Jeffries was the primary sponsor of the Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement Act, known as the CASE Act, enacted by Congress in 2020.

The CASE Act creates a revolutionary small-claims copyright tribunal: the Copyright Claims Board. The process, which is optional for both claimant and respondent, promises a quicker and less costly resolution process to bring equity to lower-stakes copyright litigation.

Speaking in a “fireside chat” format moderated by Jacqueline Charlesworth, LA Copyright Society Trustee and former General Counsel of the U.S. Copyright Office and Associate Register of Copyrights, Congressman Jeffries will discuss the CASE Act’s path to passage, and why he championed it. He will also provide his perspective on other copyright-related issues on the legislative horizon.

Following Congressman Jeffries’ presentation, Terrica Carrington, Vice President for Legal Policy and Copyright Counsel at the Copyright Alliance, will offer additional insight into the CASE Act, explaining the Copyright Alliance’s efforts to secure its passage, the current state of Copyright Office efforts to implement the legislation, and how the small claims process will operate in practice.
