Part five of our 10 Years of the DMCA interview series features Jennifer Urban, Clinical Associate Professor of Law and Director of the Intellectual Property and Technology Law Clinic at the USC Gould School of Law. Professor Urban has researched takedown notices issued under section 512 of the DMCA and has discovered that more than 30% of such notices are of questionable integrity (PDF link). Professor Urban has also been involved in court cases relating to the DMCA’s anti-circumvention provisions (section 1201). In the interview, she explains sections 512 and 1201 of the DMCA and discusses her work in both areas.[video:http://vimeo.com/2111887 width:400 height:241]
