Don Henley Addresses Congress to Update Online Copyright Laws

Don Henley of The Eagles addressed Congress at the beginning of the month, pleading with them to strengthen anti-piracy rules online.

He references the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) of 1998.

He says "Due to the antiquated procedures dictated by the DMCA, internet services with clear oversight and control of content posted on their websites are continuing to monetize and collect advertising revenue on videos containing music, even after that music has been flagged by the music creator as infringing. How is that a fair bargain?”

"The DMCA has shown its age. The DMCA is a relic of a MySpace era, in a TikTok world."
