Digital age public interest group proposes reforms to copyright law

May 2011


Public Knowledge, a consumer public interest group in Washington has re-iterated its reform proposals  to modernize copyright law addressing the subjects of fair-use, anti-piracy device circumvention, abuse of the copyright symbol, the notice and take-down provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA,) the problem of incidental copies, and streaming music licensing. The group also wants to create new digital music rights organisations that would make the process of licensing of music online more efficient, and to clarify the rights associated with digital transmissions.
