Using an Internet lawyer to handle DMCA takedown claims is a wise move…if you have the budget. Most small businesses do not.
The good news is there is a DMCA DIY guide know by the title “DMCA HANDBOOK for ISPs, Websites, Content Creators, & Copyright Owners.”
The bad news is the book is out of print. [Shakes fist as publishing gods in the sky!]
There was hope a second edition would be published but, alas, we are four months past the expected date of delivery. Much like I’ve given up hope that a suddenly single Ms. Jolie will call, we probably need to give up on the second edition of the DMCA Handbook ever appearing. You can still find used versions of the first edition floating around on Amazon and eBay, but the prices are usually gag-inducing.
Alas, all is not lost. A law firm has put out a free guide for compliance online – pay attention to Section 7. Speak with a lawyer if the compliance process is not clear to you. Seriously. Getting sued for copyright infringement will ruin your year.
