2304.1 (C) Designation of Agent to Receive Notifications of Alleged Infringement Under Section 512 (C) of the Copyright Act

 

The Copyright Act allows online service providers to limit their liability for copyright infringement claims involving material that has been posted on their systems or networks at the direction of a user. To invoke this safe harbor, service providers must designate an agent to receive notifications of alleged infringement and must provide the agent’s name, address, and other contact information to the U.S. Copyright Office. See 17 U.S.C. § 512 (C) (2).

 

For information concerning these types of documents and the procedures for recording them with the Office, see Section 2312.
