At the very end of 2015 the U.S. Copyright Office announced two studies on the use and effectiveness of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA)(Section 512).
Tomorrow, the U.S. Copyright Office will formally announce in the Federal Register they will hold two two-day public roundtables on DMCA safe harbor issues in New York, New York and Stanford, California during May.
The New York roundtable will take place on May 2 and 3, 2016, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on both days, and will be held in the Lester Pollack Colloquium Room of Furman Hall at the New York University School of Law, 245 Sullivan Street, New York, New York 10012.
The Stanford roundtable will take place on May 12 and 13, 2016, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on both days, and will be held in the Manning Faculty Lounge of the Stanford Law School, 559 Nathan Abbott Way, Stanford, California 94305.
The roundtable hearing rooms will have a limited number of seats for participants and observers. Those who seek to participate should complete and submit the form available through the Copyright Office’s website at so it is received no later than April 4, 2016. For individuals who wish to observe a roundtable, the Office will provide public seating on a first-come, first-served basis on the days of the roundtables.
