Attorney Steve Copyright Law Essentials - Copyright Small Claims Board ("CCB")

The copyright claims board, also known as the CCB, is set to open in Washington D.C. on June 16th, 2022. The board will accept copyright claims for things like photo infringement, art infringement, and music infringement. Claimants will be able to receive up to $30,000 for their claim. This is a great opportunity for artists and musicians who have had their work infringed upon to get the compensation they deserve. If you have been a victim of copyright infringement, be sure to file a claim with the CCB when it opens.

Music, architecture plans, jewelry, fabric designs, and podcast episodes are just some of the things that can be registered as a copyright. Copyright protection exists from the moment a work is created in fixed form. This means that if you take a photo, for example, the photo is automatically copyrighted and you own the rights to it. However, if someone uses your photo without your permission, they may be infringing on your copyright. If you believe that someone has infringed on your copyright, you should consult with a copyright lawyer to discuss your options. Copyright infringement is a serious matter and can result in significant damages. Therefore, it is important to know your rights and understand how to protect your work.
