Vital reminder from the law firm of Garvey Schubert Barer. Read this if you include 3d party content (photos, artwork, text, etc.) on your website or permit others to post such materials.
If so, you need to renew your Designation of Copyright Agent filing with the Copyright Office by 12/31/17. This is required in order to qualify for the safe harbor under the DMCA, which protects qualifying internet service providers from claims of third party copyright infringement if they timely register and follow certain steps upon receiving notice of a claimed infringement.
