Senator Thom Tillis Seeks Suggestions for Reform of Digital Millenium Copyright Act

December 10, 2020

North Carolina Republican Senator Thom Tillis, who has been a leader in the effort to reform the Digital Millenium Copyright Act, recently sent an open letter to stakeholders addressing the efforts he and his team have made. The letter from the senator, who fought off a strong challenge from Democratic candidate Cal Cunningham in last week’s election, is posted in full below.

More than two decades after its passing, the DMCA has been a much-contested issue in most matters involving digital music and copyright, as creators often call for more favorable royalties, while platforms often cite the act as rationale for lower rates. The issues involved and the changes in digital platforms over the past two decades are deeply complex, in his call for input, the senator stresses: “I have found that the universe governed by copyright law has changed dramatically and that laws that may have worked well at the end of the previous millennium are not working as well today.”
