DMCA Services

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) requires that online service providers be registered with the US Copyright office in order to take advantage of the Safe Harbor Provisions of 17 U.S.C §512. In addition, you must comply with a slew of other provisions and timing requirements. We streamline your DMCA compliance obligations by serving as registered agent for you, freeing you to focus on running your business rather than trying to navigate the complicated statutory requirements. We manage all communications and provide you with any necessary declarations to establish when your notice was received, and what response you made to it. There is no better way to be sure that your DMCA requirements are met correctly, timely, efficiently and cost effectively.

Privacy

In today’s Internet-based global marketplace, communications, software and other technology services providers face real concerns related to customer privacy, data protection and network security. Agency enforcement actions, self-regulation and other forms of accountability are on the rise in the United States and across borders. One of the greatest risks is damage to a company’s reputation and its relationships with customers and business partners. Successful companies must navigate a complex web of rapidly evolving laws, regulations and policies at all levels of government, both domestic and international

No one privacy policy is appropriate for all clients. Published privacy policies must reflect actual practices of a company and must not over- or understate the commitments a company makes concerning its use of personal data. Procedures used by another company could be irrelevant to the practices or type of data that another company collects and uses for different purposes. We can help our clients take the time to draft clear, complete, accurate privacy or security policies relevant to the applicable laws and the company’s activities concerning the collection and use of personal data
