COVID-19 Relief & Trademarks & Copyrights

On December 27, 2020, President Trump signed the COVID-19 relief and government funding bill, which incorporated The Trademark Modernization Act of 2020 (“TMA”) and the Copyright Alternative in Small-Claims Enforcement Act of 2020 (“CASE Act”). The TMA (i) makes it easier for trademark owners to obtain injunctions against infringers and (ii) creates new procedures for trademark owners to challenge fraudulent applications and registrations and for third parties to file evidence related to a trademark application.

The CASE Act establishes a “small claims” court within the Copyright Office to adjudicate copyright infringement disputes valued at under $30,000. Overviews of these laws are below.
