The Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA) is a U.S. Copyright law that went into effect in 1998. At the time, it aimed to ready copyright law for the digital age.
The law introduced a safe harbor for Internet services, meaning that they can?t be held liable for their pirating users as long as they properly process takedown notices and deal with repeat infringers.
After more than 20-years, the DMCA is still seen as the leading copyright law worldwide although there are calls to modernize it. Below are the most recent DMCA related news articles.
