Digital Creators Coalition Letter to US Trade Representative
On August 6, 2020, a letter was sent by the Digital Creators Coalition (DCC), of which the SCL is a member, to US Trade Representative (USTR) Robert E. Lighthizer regarding US-UK copyright safe harbors. The letter was also shared with the US government interagency team working on US-UK copyright negotiations.
The letter is a timely prioritization of this critical issue, and follows on from Tuesday’s House Judiciary Committee listening session that heard comments from creators on Section 512 of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). SCL President Ashley Irwin was a contributor to the session, on behalf of creators. His opening remarks to the HJC can be read HERE.
