This week marks the 10th anniversary of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), and Public Knowledge is making certain the occasion is properly observed.
Starting today, and continuing through the week, PK staff will have a series of posts to our policy blog exploring various aspects of “10 Years of the DMCA.” The first one, by Rashmi Rangnath, is up today.
But that’s not all. Through the week, we will also have a series of video interviews with people who have experienced the DMCA’s restrictions and limitations. Our first video, with Vijay Raghavan, an entrepreneur put out of business by the DMCA, is posted as well.
Other videos lined up for the week include interviews with Mark Richert, Director of Public Policy, American Foundation for the Blind; Peter Decherney, Assistant Professor of Cinema Studies and English, University of Pennsylvania; and Peter Jaszi, Professor of Law, Washington College of Law, American University. They all have fascinating stories to tell.
Members of the media may contact Communications Director Shiva Stella with inquiries, interview requests, or to join the Public Knowledge press list at firstname.lastname@example.org or 405-249-9435.
