DMCA HANDBOOK for ISPs, WebSites, Content Creators & Copyright Holders
Problem: Copyright Infringement by ISPs & Websites
An ISP or Website that allows users to transmit, post or upload content or material through its system or network or on its website, may transmit, cache, store, or index infringing copies of copyright protected material on or through its servers. When infringing copies of copyright protected material are hosted, transmitted, or stored on or thorugh an ISP’s or Website’s system or servers, such ISPs and Website owners contributory infringers and will be liable for monetary damages for copyright infringement to the rights holders/owners of the material being infringed. Even one claim of infringement could put an ISP or Website owner out of business.
Solution: Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA)
