More than 200 recording artists and industry figures, including Irving Azoff, Taylor Swift and U2, recently signed an open letter to Congress decrying the rampant exploitation of their work for profit by entities such as YouTube. A key part of the letter focused on the inadequacies of the DMCA, a law enacted in 1998—long before the development of modern social media and popular sites such as Periscope, Snapchat and Facebook. This panel explores the existing DMCA takedown regime, the debate surrounding its reform, and how rightsholders and internet service providers can navigate its murky waters.
