What Your Business Needs to Know About Copyright:
Navigating the DMCA Safe Harbor and Notice and Takedown Provisions

Wednesday, June 15, 2011
1:00 pm – 2:00 pm ET
Copyright Webinar Series

In today’s online world, infringing content is often stored and distributed through third-party networks and websites provided by online service providers (OSPs), such as website hosting services and Internet service providers. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) safe harbor provisions offer OSPs protection from liability for information posted or transmitted by subscribers—but only under certain circumstances.

Join us as we take an in-depth look at this much-debated topic and discuss what you need to know as an OSP or as a copyright owner to enforce your rights under the DMCA.

Key Topics:

  • DMCA safe harbor and notice and takedown provisions – What are they, and who do they help?
  • Practical tips for OSPs – What is a service provider under the DMCA? What is a registered agent, and why is having one necessary? What requirements does an OSP need to fulfill to qualify for the DMCA’s safe harbor protection? How must an OSP handle repeat infringers? What is a counter-notice and put-back procedure?
  • Practical tips for copyright owners – How does a copyright owner enforce its rights under the DMCA? Could there be ramifications for doing so, and if so, under what circumstances?

Moderated by: Lisa Greenwald-Swire, Principal, Silicon Valley

Speakers:

Erin Hickey, Associate, New York
Kristen McCallion, Associate, New York
