Rights Manager Makes Case for Digital Control

August 29, 2016, Los Angeles Business Journal

Mitchell Kamin is quoted in a Los Angeles Business Journal article regarding a $25 million verdict against ISP Cox in a copyright infringement case brought by BMG Rights Management. According to Kamin, “The music industry and copyright holders are certainly pushing to limit the safe-harbor provision.” He continues, “They feel companies on the tech side of things get all the love. It will be interesting to see if policymakers see this case as a way to address some of the issues with the [Digital Millennium Copyright Act].” 

Kamin adds, “The case is a good cautionary tale for internet service providers who would be well-served to take stock of their internal policies.” He says, “Rights holders are probably emboldened to test the waters right now.”
