EFF Senior Staff Attorney Mitch Stoltz will speak on a panel hosted by the San Francisco Intellectual Property Law Association (SFIPLA) about the implementation and impact of the Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement Act of 2020 (CASE Act). This new legislation means Internet users could face up to $30,000 in penalties for sharing a meme or making a video, with liability determined not by neutral judges but by biased bureaucrats. The CASE Act is supposed to be a solution to the complicated problem of online copyright infringement. In reality, it creates a system that will harm everyday users who, unlike the big players, won’t have the time and capacity to negotiate this new bureaucracy.

The panel discussion will be over Zoom (login credential details to be provided prior to program meeting date).
