Washington, D.C. Partner Mike Remington and Washington, D.C., Of Counsel Janet Fries presented a Bloomberg BNA webinar Thursday, Nov. 7 on recent developments to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Mike and Janet gave the presentation at a time that more and more copyrightable subject matter is being posted to the Internet (because of the dramatic growth in e-commerce and social media).
The DCMA includes notice and a takedown procedure and addresses content owners’ copyright management information. It also includes certain “safe harbors” for service providers and other provisions relating to secondary liability.
The program covered the above, as well as secondary liability issues and anti-circumvention and copyright management information.
