Take Action in April: Let Congress Know You Support Copyright Small Claims Reform
For months we've been reporting on H.R. 3945, the Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement Act (CASE Act) of 2017. Its a bill that is way overdue for individual graphic artists, who face significant obstacles when trying to protect their work from infringement. The CASE Act evens the playing field, by creating a small copyright claims tribunal that's simple and affordable. And it's completely optional – graphic artists with large infringements will still be able to take their case to “regular” copyright court.
To get the CASE Act to move forward, we need every graphic artist to let their Representatives know we support this legislation!
