EDUCAUSE Statement on Copyright Office Interim Regulations for 'Service Providers'
Thursday, January 1, 1998
EDUCAUSE has issued a letter for members briefly explaining the Interim Regulations for the new Digital Millennium Copyright Act and recommending a course of action to ensure that universities who are also "service providers" can take full advantage of the protections offered by the new law. The recently enacted Act includes infringement liability exemptions for online service providers. The Copyright Office on November 3 issued the Interim Regulations--effective immediately--that require such service providers to take certain steps before they can avail themselves of the OSP liability exemptions contained in the new Act.
