COPYRIGHT AND THE DMCA

https://www.copyright.gov/legislation/dmca.pdf https://www.copyright.gov/dmca-directory/

The creator of original material (text, images, songs, etc.) has copyright over that material; this is the right to decide who can use that material, as well as where and when that use is authorized. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (or DMCA for short) is a US federal law that allows copyright holders to remove unauthorized uses of their copyrighted materials and protects online service providers (like Sharon Taylor Productions) who comply with the DMCA process from legal liability. The law is meant to provide a balanced process: copyright holders are responsible for enforcing the rights they have in their work, and online services have a legal incentive to honor all valid takedown requests.

We at Sharon Taylor Productions strongly believe in legitimate copyright protection – and millions of original pieces of copyrighted material. At the same time, we recognize that there’s a lot of potential for abuse, especially as a way to censor legitimate criticism or ignore fair use of copyrighted materials. We work hard to make our DMCA process as fair, transparent, and balanced as possible, so we stringently review all notices we receive to quickly process valid infringement claims and push back on those that we see as abusive.
