Damn Good Reminder: If You Run A Blog, Register For DMCA Protections
from the don't-forget,-yo dept
A bunch of folks have sent over a Wired article highlighting the same thing and urging people to go register. While we've already made the same point, it's such an important point, that we're going to repeat it again, and urge you to register again.
Oh, and in an amusing bit of irony, in the Righthaven lawsuit that the EFF got involved in, one of the points it noted was that the Las Vegas Review-Journal itself appeared to have not designated a DMCA agent, meaning that while it (via Righthaven) was suing sites for forgetting this basic step, it was leaving itself open to the same sort of issue with its open forum. Of course, since then it appears that this has been corrected, but it looks like Stephens Media only registered in August of this year... So it does seem a bit ironic that the company relying so heavily on people forgetting to designate DMCA agents apparently did the same itself.
