Abstract

Social media platforms have proliferated on the Internet and millions of users upload content daily. In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, when infringing content is uploaded onto a social media platform, the copyright holder can issue a take down notice, and a platform that fails to comply risks losing the benefit of the DMCA’s safe harbors. This article describes recent legal developments concerning the DMCA and its application to social media.

Keywords: intellectual property, copyright, social media, DMCA
