Shot down – Photogs lose DMCA case over metadata removal
Abstract: More than two decades after its enactment, portions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) continue to confound both copyright holders and accused infringers. What, for example, must a copyright holder establish to win a lawsuit over removal of copyright management information (CMI)? This article looks at a U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit decision that provided some clarity on the issue in a case involving digital photographs. Stevens v. CoreLogic, Inc., No. 16-56089, June 20, 2018, 9th Cir.
