Re:Create Statement On Today’s DMCA Hearing

WASHINGTON — Following the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Intellectual Property hearing to evaluate the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), Re:Create issued the following statement from Executive Director Joshua Lamel:

“Re:Create and its members participating in today’s hearing welcomed the opportunity for an open discussion about the DMCA’s carefully balanced policy origins and the years of bipartisan work that led to this cornerstone of our nation’s copyright law.

“The DMCA has proven its continued effectiveness in promoting creativity and economic growth today. While thoughtful debate about changes to our nation’s U.S. copyright law can serve an important public purpose, we urge caution when it comes to policy proposals that will only serve to stifle innovation and free speech at the expense of creators and consumers.”

Re:Create represents a cross-section of creators, advocates, thinkers and consumers seeking to promote copyright standards that foster innovation, creativity and economic growth. For more information, please visit recreatecoalition.org.
