Establishes the Copyright Claims Board (CCB) within the Copyright Office as a forum for parties to voluntarily resolve small copyright claims. Under the bill, the Library of Congress would appoint three copyright claims officers, in consultation with the Copyright Office, to manage CCB proceedings and to make judgements on copyright claims, counterclaims, and defenses. The bill requires the Copyright Office to hire at least two copyright claims attorneys and administrative support staff to assist those officers, and to obtain necessary equipment and facilities. Finally, the Copyright Office would need to conduct a study on the use and efficacy of the CCB and report their findings to the Congress.
