As was noted earlier in the thread, a bill has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives that would establish a small claims court within the U.S. Copyright Office. A law making small claims pertaining to copyright infringement practical was enacted about five years ago in the U.K, so perhaps this is becoming a trend throughout the world.You can't sue for copyright infringement in small claims. c Copyright is a federal issue and can only be handled in federal court.
