Webinar: DMCA 101 – Protecting Yourself from Copyright Infringement Enforcement

Learn about your rights & responsibilities under the DMCA

Can’t keep up with the copyright infringement notifications you’ve been receiving lately? Confused on how to register with the Copyright Office? Want to know your rights when dealing with copyright trolls? JSI’s Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) experts recently held a webinar where they answered these important questions, and many more.

Although the laws haven’t changed, technology certainly has – and there continues to be a serious problem with illegal file sharing and copyright infringement. Movie and music producers do their best to track IP addresses, often through a third-party service, and send notices to ISPs. You can get bogged down in infringement notices, and it can feel like a never-ending battle to keep up with passing them along to customers. Furthermore, the industry does not have a comprehensive set of best practices, and a recent court decision revealed that ISPs with lax DMCA policies could be vulnerable to legal action.

On this webinar, expect to gain “101”-level knowledge about DMCA laws, risks, and industry best practices. This webinar is appropriate for managers, technical personnel, and of course any employee who is registered as a Designated Agent. We covered the following topics:

  • All about DMCA infringement notices, including suggested policies and response plans
  • How to handle repeat infringers to protect yourself from legal action
  • The Cox case and how it now impacts DMCA policies
  • What to do if you get a subpoena
  • Registering a DMCA Designated Agent with the Copyright Office
  • Reviewing and updating your Acceptable Use Policy to ensure DMCA compliance
