New Group Registration Option for Short Online Literary Works | Copyright Alliance

The U.S. Copyright Office announced a new group registration option for short online literary works, which will allow creators to save money when registering blogs, articles, and other short text-based works. When this new application does become available, authors of short text-based works (between 50 and 17,500 words) that are published online will finally be able to register those works together in one group using a single application with a single filing fee.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) recently announced a new strategy that involves partnering more closely with businesses in an effort to combat these types of crimes more effectively.

Copyright Alliance Comments Spotlight Infringement by States - The Graphic Artist Guild

The Alliance calculates that creators and copyright owners have encountered thousands of instances of infringement by state entities, resulting in lost revenue of countless millions of dollars.” Of the respondents to the survey, 115 experienced copyright infringements by states, and most reported multiple violations. A wide range of creative works were infringed: mostly books and photographs, but also audio recordings; audiovisual works such as TV shows, movies, and videos; publications such as newsletters and magazines; databases; graphic works such as paintings, design, and illustration; sculpture; choreography; jewelry and fashion designs; etc.

The US Copyright Office issued a report on Thursday claiming that the safe-harbor provision of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DCMA) now favors tech companies over rights-holders. After studying the issue for years and taking into consideration more than 92,000 comments, the Copyright Office suggests that “Congress may wish to fine-tune” the statute.

American Entrepreneurs Trampled by Politics in Antitrust Hearings - The Illusion of More

Many small businesses—from garage start-ups to a few million in sales with employees to support—sell unique merchandise based on original designs protected by copyright and under trade names protected by trademark. And it seems that just about every week, I encounter an entrepreneur describing the volume and rate at which they find counterfeiters selling knock-off versions of their products on Amazon, eBay, Etsy, Alibaba, and some of the smaller retail platforms as well. The costly, often futile, game of whack-a-mole via DMCA takedown is not just for musicians and photographers; it’s being played by hundreds of American businesses.

High Court Oracle-Google Copyright War May Benefit Artists

To put into perspective what this would mean for artists: Because copyright is a body of federal law that preempts state law, it must be tried in federal courts. Most individuals and small businesses cannot afford to bring or defend against even simple infringement actions in federal court. The American Intellectual Property Law Association has estimated that the mean cost of fully litigating a copyright infringement lawsuit is $397,000. Adding a jury trial requirement to these already astronomical costs would put justice ever further out of reach for the majority of the creative community.

DMCA Review Should Be About Copyright, No? - The Illusion of More

Today’s major platforms—all founded years after the DMCA was first hammered out between big telco and big media—read certain ambiguities in the statutes to mean that they are free to profit from chronic infringement by users, while doing the bare minimum to comply with the notice-and-takedown provision.

Online Copyright Infringement Discussed in House Judiciary Hearing

Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) opened the hearing by explaining that the DMCA was enacted in 1998 when internet companies were in their nascency, and that there has been a dramatic increase in online infringement over the past two decades that has led to questions over whether the balance intended by Congress has been maintained. Nadler noted that “our copyright laws have to keep up” with changes to technology and the growth of the internet, and that the Committee was interested in determining whether the recommendations in the Copyright Office’s 512 Report would help the law keep pace.

Stop Senator Ron Wyden and Big Tech from Crushing Creators' Hopes

The CASE Act is a bipartisan copyright dispute resolution bill that is inches away from becoming the law of the land. The bill calls for a “small claims” process staffed by U.S. Copyright Office attorneys for a limited category of infringement claims by creators, as well as an opportunity for a quick and inexpensive resolution by users of its various defenses to copyright infringement, such as fair use. The bill is an alternative approach to the one-size-fits-few federal copyright litigation that is far too expensive and complicated for working creators to utilize.

Allen v. Cooper Revisited III: Data Suggests States Willfully Infringe Copyrights - The Illusion of More

44% of respondents report that when they demanded that the state actors cease the infringing conduct, the infringers specifically invoked sovereign immunity as a reason for non-compliance. More than half the infringing entities, according to the creators who offered descriptions, were state universities, while the rest were organizations like tourism boards, state departments, and museums.
