Join SFIPLA to hear Kelly Klaus and Allyson Bennett discuss The Copyright Office’s Section 512 Study.

In December 2015, the Copyright Office announced that it was undertaking a public study to evaluate the impact and effectiveness of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) safe harbor provisions, 17 U.S.C. Section 512, which limit service providers’ monetary liability for online infringement in defined circumstances.  The Section 512 provisions, among other things, establish a “notice and takedown” framework for the removal of infringing content.  The Copyright Office asked for views on a wide range of issues concerning Section 512. The presentation will discuss the topics that the Copyright Office was interested in hearing about, and analyze the responses filed by numerous stakeholders.
