Standard Technical Measures Discussion

As noted in the Copyright Office’s report, Section 512 of Title 17, the Office believes that the identification of standard technical measures (STMs) may improve the overall functioning of the notice-and-takedown system. The Office is building upon the report’s recommendations by holding a series of online discussions to lay the groundwork for sustained engagement on STMs.


All of the meetings for the STM Discussion Event are open to the public; however, attendees must register for each session they wish to attend.
