What Is The DMCA?
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) makes major changes to copyright law and attempts to address copyright in the digitally environment. DMCA was passed by the U.S. Congress on Oct. 12th 1998 and signed into Law on Oct 28th 1998 by President William (Bill) Clinton. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) is U.S. copyright legislation that implements the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) Performances and Phonograms Treaty and the 1996 WIPO Copyright Treaty. DMCA prevents the unauthorized duplication of digital copyrighted works by regulating digital intellectual property (IP) owners and consumers. Since DMCA was passed in 1998, similar bills and legislation have been adopted internationally.
What’s A DMCA Takedown?
One of the more important elements of the DMCA is the Safe Harbor provisions, which established a takedown notice process and a legal system for removing infringing works from the internet and digital environment. The process involves the time intensive process of drafting up legal documents that detail and precisely outline the claim. The Takedown process then needs to be delivered to all parties displaying or distributing the infringing works.
In most cases, that system has been used properly and as intended. Millions of DMCA notices have been filed to secure the removal of everything from illegal music, files, articles, photos, and movies to plagiarized content like poems. However, the system can also be abused at times and used to harm competitors and more.
