The U.S. Copyright Office's DMCA Section 512 Study Results Draw Copyright Alliance Response

The Copyright Alliance has issued a response to the U.S. Copyright Office’s report of its study on Section 512 of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). Keith Kupferschmid, Copyright Alliance CEO, said, in part:

The report issued by the U.S. Copyright Office today came to a conclusion we have long known to be true: ‘the operation of the section 512 safe harbor system today is unbalanced.’ This report is extremely important to the copyright community and many others who are integral players in the online copyright enforcement ecosystem, and is the product of almost five years of thoughtful and comprehensive deliberation by the Copyright Office and the many stakeholders who have participated in the process. It contemplates numerous complex and difficult issues relating to online copyright enforcement, while specifically evaluating the impact and effectiveness of the safe harbor provisions contained in Section 512, which was enacted by Congress in 1998 as part of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). We very much appreciate all the hard work that went into the final report, and look forward to reviewing it in detail in the coming days.

For more information and the rest of Kupferschmid’s statement, read the press release.
