What is more important for serious folks to realize is there is a duty to update one’s DMCA agent on file. If you change the agent from one person to another – you must update. If the agent’s address changes – you must update. If the contact information from the agent changes – you must update. Are we noticing a theme? Once you update, make sure to also amend the DMCA policy on your site or app.
Again, DMCA compliance is something you should want to undertake. Yes, it can be a bit bureaucratic, but the reward is oh-so-nice – immunity from copyright infringement claims based on content uploaded by your users.
