Those who follow our blog know that Rick has long been thinking and writing about the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, the reaches of liability for hosting companies and ISPS for infringing material posted by users, and what it is really supposed to mean to have a policy against repeat infringement. Following the 4th Circuit Decision on February 1st, Rick wrote about the case, and has been quoted by Communication Daily in today’s article, in particular about whether the court’s ruling will de-incentivize ISPs to pass along notices of infringement to their users. This is the second time Communication Daily has come to Rick about this decision – he was interviewed for an earlier article on February 2nd as well.
