On Friday November 1, Senator Ted Cruz sent a letter to the United States Trade Representative requesting that he remove the language in the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement and other pending trade deals that provides technology companies with immunity for third party content, saying “With members of both the Senate and House of Representatives seriously considering wither to amend or eliminate Section 230’s grant of immunity because big tech is not living up to its end of the legislative bargain, I believe that enshrining it in our trade agreements would be a mistake.” 

On Thursday November 7, the Senate Rules and Administration Committee held a hearing on the Library of Congress (IT) modernization oversight, at which Karyn Temple, the Register of Copyrights, and Dr. Carla Hayden, the Librarian of Congress, testified; when asked about the CASE Act, the Register of Copyrights testified that the Copyright Office can readily implement it, and that she did not anticipate requiring additional staff for its implementation.
