DMCA Designated Agent Services

DMCA Attorney Corey Silverstein warns all website operators to ensure DMCA compliance and offers DMCA Agent Services. From Copyright.gov: “The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) provides safe harbors from copyright infringement liability for online service providers. In order to qualify for safe harbor protection, certain kinds of service providers—for example, those that allow users to post or store material on their systems, and search engines, directories, and other information location tools— must designate an agent to receive notifications of claimed copyright infringement. To designate an agent, a service provider must do two things: (1) make certain contact information for the agent available to the public on its website; and (2) provide the same information to the Copyright Office, which maintains a centralized online directory of designated agent contact information for public use. The service provider must also ensure that this information is up to date. In December 2016, the Office introduced an online registration system and electronically generated directory to replace the Office’s old paper-based system and directory. Accordingly, the Office no longer accepts paper designations.

According to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), earlier today (March 8, 2017), Acting FTC Chairman Maureen K. Ohlhausen spoke about the FTC’s continuing efforts in protecting consumers and educating small businesses on ways to keep consumer data secure. “Failing to take reasonable precautions to secure data from identity thieves and other malicious actors hurts consumers and legitimate businesses alike,” Acting Chairman Ohlhausen said in her written testimony. “Data breaches can harm a business’s financial interests and reputation as well as result in the loss of consumer confidence in the businesses to whom they entrust their data.

Website Attorney, Corey Silverstein Reminds You: Don’t Forget Website Terms Of Use And Service

Website Attorney, Corey Silverstein Reminds You: Don’t Forget Website Terms of Use and Service

As a website attorney, one of the more frequent questions that I receive is whether Website Terms of Use and Website Terms of Service are different. In most cases the answer is no. To put it simply, a website’s Terms of Use or Terms of Service is the contract between the website operator and its user(s). The Terms of Use or Terms of Service should contain numerous legally binding provisions between a website operator and its user(s). It is also essential that a website’s Terms of Use or Terms of Service are properly implemented on a website so that the court find them enforceable. A website’s Terms of Use or Terms of Service will differ substantially from website to website, depending on the specific services or products that the relevant website is offering its users. There are far too many website operators who think that it is acceptable and sufficient to simply take someone else’s Terms of Use or Terms of Service and slap them on a website; history has taught us that the act of stealing someone else’s Terms of Use or Terms of Service is a recipe for disaster and can ultimately bind the website operator to unfavorable…
