Recordings of Standard Technical Measures Discussion Now Online

Issue No. 884 - March 9, 2021

In September 2020, the U.S. Copyright Office hosted three Standard Technical Measures (STMs) Discussion sessions: Legal Foundation, Current Technologies and Their STM Potential, and Looking Forward.

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

The recordings of the September 2020 sessions are now online and available to the public on the Section 512 Resource Page and on the Copyright Office YouTube channel. The discussion’s agenda and speaker biographies can be found on the event’s page.
