The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), Pub. L. 105-304, 112 Stat. 2860 (1998) contained an amendment to U.S. Copyright Law that was designed to implement two treaties developed by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). This act criminalized the use of certain types of technology to circumvent existing copyright laws. The purpose was to help increase copyright integrity in a digital age, an issue known as digital rights management. One component of the DMCA is that websites are required to investigate reports that they are improperly displaying copyrighted material, and, if those allegations are founded, remove the copyrighted material, in addition to taking other potential steps to assist the copyright owner.
