On December 27, 2020, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021, a 5,000+ page omnibus spending bill meant to address COVID-19 relief, was signed into law. Embedded within that bill were several significant new trademark and copyright laws, including:
- The Trademark Modernization Act
- A law creating a Copyright Claims Board for matters under $30,000
- A law making it a felony for large-scale streaming services to provide unauthorized access to copyrighted material
