The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998: U.S. Copyright Office Summary, stipulates requirements for any complainant, for the services provider (Grinnell College), and for any user (called "subscriber" below) of Grinnell College's network in the event of a copyright dispute. According to the DMCA, a copyright owner must submit a proper written notification to a network "service provider" (such as Grinnell College) alleging misuse of material. This notification must include:

The name, address, and electronic address or physical signature of the complainant Sufficient information to identify the copyrighted work Sufficient information to allow the College to identify the web-based or electronic documents alleged to infringe copyright A statement by the copyright owner that it has a good faith belief that there is no legal basis for the use of the

The DMCA further requires that: Upon receipt of a proper, written notification of alleged copyright violation, the College's designated agent will promptly remove or block access to the material identified in the notification. At Grinnell, the designated agent will attempt to contact the account or computer owner where the material is stored, forward the complaint to the owner, review the basic provisions of the DMCA with the owner, when possible, and ask that the owner remove or block the material. If the owner does not promptly comply with this request the agent will take action to block or remove the material. If, after removal or blocking of the material the account owner sends a written "counter-notification" to the designated agent that includes a statement, under penalty of perjury, that the material removed or disabled was done so through mistake or misidentification, then, unless the complainant files an action seeking a court order against the account or computer owner, the College will unblock access to the material or put the material back online within 10-14 business days after receiving the counter-notification. Whenever a counter-notification is received by the designated agent, he or she will promptly forward that counter-notice to the complainant.

As stated above, these are the steps that the College will take when it receives proper notification of an alleged copyright violation. If you have any questions about the requirements of the DMCA or Grinnell College's interpretation of that act, please send email to David Ellis .

Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998

In 1998, Bill Clinton signed into law the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 that has since changed the way the digital world works.  Anyone who creates content that is either available in digital form or can be transformed into a digital work is affected by the DMCA and is given even more creative control over the content. The DMCA also affects the end users such as you by restricting what you can and cannot do with digital content.

One of the big things that affect students on campus is the ability that the DMCA grants copyright holders to send out what are known as DMCA Takedown Notices. A student will typically get one of these when he or she commits an act of copyright infringement by either hosting a copyrighted file on a website or sharing that file on a peer to peer network such as LimeWire, BitTorrent, or Kazaa. This notice states that the copyright owner believes that you are hosting and allowing redistribution of their content without their expressed permission and is requesting that you take the content down from your website or from being shared. Even after removing the offending content, the recipient has the possibility of receiving a lawsuit as much as three years after receiving the notice.

The DMCA does, however, give institutions and businesses such as the university and internet service providers such as Charter, Time Warner, and Comcast, or even content hosting sites such as YouTube “safe harbor”. What this means is as long as they pass the takedown notice to the person, they cannot be sued by the copyright holder.  However if these groups wish to maintain their safe harbor, they have to take down the content or pass along the notice without caring about the content or discriminating.

Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (DMCA) Higher Education Opportunity Act

The Higher Education Opportunity Act requires academic institutions to increase the university's response to copyright infringements.  Universities must have a three pronged approach to address this act:

Educate students on copyright and DMCA issues, Prevent inappropriate use of peer-to-peer (P2P) programs and software through utilizations   of a variety of technologies to deter the behavior, and Suggest alternatives for downloading programs (Pandora, Itunes, etc.).
