The CASE Act: Good Intention, Bad Result

The Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement Act of 2019 (CASE Act) is intended to create a small claims court for copyright proceedings at the Copyright Office in the Library of Congress where those who think their copyright is being infringed can bring actions against infringers. However, the CASE Act will actually create a likely unconstitutional process leading to litigation abuse that could bankrupt many Americans, small businesses, and nonprofits for something as simple as posting a photo on Instagram or Twitter. Furthermore, it will do nothing to deal with most of the infringement that is occurring.
