E-Commerce Law Reports

Partner Melinda Levitt states that the Digital Millennium Copyright Act places the burden of policing online copyright infringement on the copyright owner rather than an internet service provider (ISP) or search engine. Levitt notes that ISPs and search engines are not expected to resolve confusing and incomplete notices of claimed infringement due to the sheer volume of content hosted on the internet.
