Sacked by Copyright: DMCA Takedowns and Free Expression

Wendy Seltzer, Berkman Fellow


When Berkman Fellow and Chilling Effects founder Wendy Seltzer posted a Super Bowl clip to YouTube, she thought she’d get to teach a bit about copyright — the clip was the NFL’s warning that “Any other use of this telecast or of any pictures, descriptions, or accounts of the game without the NFL’s consent, is prohibited.” In series of DMCA notices, copyright takedowns, counter-notifications, and put-backs, Seltzer has found the process more convoluted than even she anticipated. Join the discussion at the Berkman Center about the free expression stakes in Viacom v. YouTube: copyright, safe-harbors, and Chilling Effects.
