Overview of DMCA law

  1. 1. DMCA LAWYER The Law Offices of Steven C. Vondran - 2018 Copyright, Trademark, Internet & Entertainment Law DMCACounsel.com Call (877) 276-5084
  2. 2. What is the DMCA?  Signed into law in 1998  Has Five Titles  The Title we will focus on is Title II  Title II is known as “OCILLA”  Online Copyright Infringement Liability Limitation
  3. 3. OCILLA Basics  Adds Section 512 to the Copyright Act  Two basic things (for purposes of this lecture)  ONE – Creates liability safe harbors for Online Service Provider’s (OSP) so they don’t go out of business due to copyright infringement claims (secondary liability).  17 U.S.C. section 512(C) is our focus  TWO - Prohibits devices/services whose primary purpose is to avoid access controls (ex. Password hack tools), Section 1201 claims
  4. 4. 17 U.S.C. 512(c)  OSP must meet requirements to get “safe harbor” liability protection  If qualify = not liable for secondary (contributory) copyright infringement  Meaning, not liable for monetary relief (injunctive relief if still possible)  If don’t qualify, they can be held liable if copyright infringement is proven
  5. 5. 17 U.S.C. 512(c) Requirements  Register agent with U.S. Copyright Office  Adopt policy to deal with repeat infringers (ex. YouTube three strikes = termination)  OSP must not interfere with reasonable copyright protection measures of copyright holders (ex. Watermarks / DRM)  No knowledge of infringing activity (actual knowledge or “red flag” apparent)  Expeditiously respond to take down notices
  6. 6. 17 U.S.C. 512(c) who benefits?  Examples  YOUTUBE – Videos that contain infringing music or video clips  ETSY STORES – Store sites that allow arts and crafts and jewelry to be sold  ONLINE EDUCATION COURSES – hijacked and put on a competing free website  PHOTOS SITES (Facebook, twitter, instagram)  PORN TUBE SITES (posting copyrighted videos)
  7. 7. DMCA Anti-Circumvention  Section 1201 prohibits  Devices or services that:  Are Primarily designed to circumvent access control technology (ex. Password cracking tools)  Have limited purpose other than to circumvent  Or are marketed as circumvention tool  Civil and Criminal penalties
  8. 8. DMCA Notice & Takedown  Aggrieved party sends takedown notice to designated agent (no agent = site owner). Puts on NOTICE.  OSP disables access to material  Counter-notification rights to End User (optional)  If counter-notification filed (content goes back up in 10 days)  Aggrieved party must file suit in federal court within 10 days and inform OSP, or content goes up. NO liability to OSP. Can raise as AFF Defense.  NOTE: You might consider monetization route (baseball video on YouTube)
  9. 9. DMCA Notice Requirements  Must be made in good faith (512(f) bad faith)  Under penalty of perjury  Should consider “fair use” before sending  Make sure it’s a COPYRIGHT claim (not trademark or right of publicity)  ID work and location of infringing work  Provide contact information  Sign under penalty of perjury.  Notice NO GOOD = Case jeopardized.  Similar requirements of counter-notification
  10. 10. 17 U.S.C. 512(f) Bad Faith  Knowing misrepresentations or even “Mistake” are grounds for 512(f) actions  Applies to notice and counter-notice  Damages, attorney fees, punitive damages?  Must know what’s NOT COPYRIGHT (ideas, facts, concepts, plots, instructions, scenes-a-faire, parody, transformative uses, fair use)  Did you give CREATIVE COMMONS rights?
  11. 11. 17 U.S.C. 512(h) Subpoenas  a "copyright owner or a person authorized to act on the owner's behalf may request the clerk of any United States District Court to issue a subpoena to a service provider for identification of an alleged infringer"  Unmasking alleged infringers  DMCA notice + Clerk Letter + Affidavit
  12. 12. QUESTIONS?  Who signed Bill into Law?
