The U.S. Copyright Office is proposing procedures governing representation of parties by law students and representation of business entities by authorized individuals in proceedings before the Copyright Claims Board (CCB), established by the Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement (CASE) Act of 2020.
The proposed rule sets forth the threshold eligibility requirements for law students to appear before the CCB, expectations for practice by law students and their supervising attorneys while participating in CCB proceedings, and the creation of a public directory of clinics that are available to accept clients appearing before the CCB. The proposed rule also sets forth the requirements that must be followed by individuals who will be authorized to represent business entities, which include corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships, and sole proprietorships.
Initial comments on this proposed rule are due on February 3, 2022; reply comments are due on February 18, 2022. Additional information is available here.
