The Copyright Alliance is currently developing numerous resources, programs, and initiatives to support creative professionals, which will be featured on this webpage. So please check back often to find out what’s new!
In the meantime, be sure to check out the Small Claims Opt-Out Protection (SCOOP) Program, which offers creators the opportunity to be reimbursed for their initial CCB filing fee if a CCB claim gets dismissed due to a respondent opting out of the proceeding. Just click on the SCOOP button below for details on how the program works and how you can apply.
Also, stay tuned for the Copyright Alliance Initiative to Promote Diversity in Copyright (IPDC program). Through the IPDC program, the Copyright Alliance is bringing together volunteers and sponsors from across the copyright community to encourage and support participation of Black creators, Indigenous creators, and creators of color (BIPOC creators) in the copyright system. BIPOC creators can apply to the program and, if eligible, will work with IPDC program volunteers to file their copyright registration applications with the U.S. Copyright Office at no cost to the creator. The goal is to educate program participants on the benefits of copyright registration and empower them to be able to register their own works going forward.
