RIAA Statement on DMCA Notice-and-Takedown Senate Hearing

WASHINGTON, DC (June 3, 2020) Following Tuesday’s “Black Out,” Mitch Glazier, Chairman and CEO of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), today issued the following statement in response to yesterday’s Senate Subcommittee on Intellectual Property hearing on the DMCA’s Notice-and-Takedown System:

“Yesterday’s hearing confirmed without question that the DMCA is broken and the time has come for change. The system must have incentives for creators and tech platforms to collaborate to provide effective online protection for the creative works that drive innovation, our culture and economy. We stand ready to work with the creative community and tech platforms to restore the balance Congress intended, and we thank Chairman Tillis, Ranking Member Coons, and Senator Blumenthal for their commitment.”
