    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.

    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.

    TARGET AUDIENCE:

    This webinar will provide practical advice for librarians whose libraries may be subject to CCB claims, such as libraries that offer e-reserves and copying of materials for interlibrary loan and patrons. This webinar will also provide relevant legal background for librarians providing research advice to patrons pursuing or defending claims before the CCB, such as librarians at law firms with a copyright practice, librarians at law schools with copyright clinics, and public librarians whose patrons are involved in CCB proceedings.

    TAKEAWAYS:

    1. Describe the history and purpose of the CCB.
    2. Analyze the types of claims available before the CCB and understand when each type of claim is
