Registering a DMCA agent
« on: 01-13-17 at 11:27 pm »

I'm not sure if this is the appropriate place to post this, but it does pertain to copyright.

If you operate a website, hosting service, or other Internet business that allows the posting of 3rd-party content, you probably rely on the safe harbor provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

You may not be aware that you can lose these protections if you do not register an Agent with the US Copyright office.

Furthermore, the registration process has changed, and even if you previously registered, you must now submit a NEW registration prior to December 31, 2017.

You can read more, and register, here:

Fortunately, the process is now all online...  no more paper forms.  The registration takes effect immediately (rather than waiting months to process), and costs just $6.

I hope this is useful!
