U.S. Copyright Claims Board Offers a Low Cost Path to Enforcement

The U.S. Copyright Claims Board recently went live, offering copyright holders a low cost method of enforcement.  The filing fee is $100, an attorney is not required, and the damage award is capped at $30,000. Registered copyright holders may choose to opt out and take the traditional federal suit route for larger damage claims. One of the first proceedings filed involves Paris Hilton who is accused of sharing photos on social media that infringe on the copyright owner’s fairy wing design.
