December 31, 2017, is the deadline to register or re-register with The Copyright Office designation of agents to receive notifications of claimed infringement under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”)
Who must designate an agent?
Any service provider (within the meaning of 17 U.S.C. 512(k)(1)) seeking the safe harbor protections of section 512 of the DMCA. Related or affiliated service providers that are separate legal entities (e.g., corporate parents and subsidiaries) are considered separate service providers, and each must have its own separate designation.
What if a service provider has previously designated an agent with the Copyright Office?
Any service provider that has previously designated an agent with the Office will have until December 31, 2017, to submit a new designation electronically through the new online registration system. Until that time, an accurate designation in the old paper-generated directory will continue to satisfy the service provider’s obligations under the DMCA. After that time, the designation will expire and become invalid, which could result in the service provider losing the section 512 safe harbor protections.
What is the consequence for choosing not to designate an agent or failing to keep a designation current and accurate (including failing to renew or re-register using the electronic system)?
Service providers risk losing the safe harbor protections of section 512 of the DMCA, leaving them potentially vulnerable to certain types of claims of copyright infringement.
