Submit your story of infringement today. Deadline is Monday, September 9 at 9:00amET.

The House Judiciary Committee (HJC) will be gearing up to take action on the CASE Act next week, and Representative Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), an original sponsor of the CASE Act, has requested statements from creators about infringement of their work and loss of income as a result of that infringement to present the expansive impact of infringement on creators to members of Congress, specifically those who have not yet signed on as co-sponsors of the CASE Act.

If you have had your work(s) infringed, we invite you to share your story by submitting a one page statement about infringement of your work that ASMP can forward to Representative Jeffries and his staff.

Please submit your one-page statement about the infringement of your work and any related detail or comment about the loss of income for that infringement to advocacy@asmp.org with subject title “Infringement Statement“, and include your name and preferred contact information. As a template for your one-page statement, please see sample statement written by former ASMP National Board Chair, Jenna Close.

If you want to include an image of the infringed work(s) described in the statement, please send image(s) as attachment along with the statement. If multiple images have been infringed, please do not submit more than three images.

Please submit any questions regarding this ask to advocacy@asmp.org. For more information about the CASE Act, go to CASE Act Central.
