Date: 
April 07, 2015

This document, known as DMCA Notice-and-Takedown Processes:  List of Good, Bad and Situational Practices, was developed by the participants in the multistakeholder forum established as a result of the Commerce Department's Green Paper on Copyright Policy, Creativity, and Innovation in the Digital Economy, released in 2013.  The document identifies a number of “good”, “bad” and “situational” practices to improve the efficiency of the handling and processing of DMCA notices by both senders and recipients.
