ReCreate Calls for Transparency on DMCA Review

WASHINGTON — Re:Create issued the following statement on submissions to Senator Tillis’ review of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).

“Copyright’s purpose, as enshrined in the Constitution, is to serve the public interest by promoting the progress of arts and science. In the name of public interest, the Re:Create Coalition is openly sharing our balanced copyright recommendations for safeguarding the rights, livelihoods and interests of all Americans. Many Americans don’t realize that we interact with copyright law many times each day: reading a book; watching a movie; using a search engine; posting on Instagram; scrolling on Twitter or TikTok; and buying a holiday gift on Etsy. Because of how copyright interacts with all of our daily lives, it’s critical that policymakers listen to everyone’s recommendations — not just Hollywood’s lobbyists. We call on all stakeholders to be transparent and open with their recommendations because we’re concerned that otherwise Congress may not hear everyone’s voice.”

Below are submissions from Re:Create’s members and other public interest groups.
