Hi,

I was wondering about the international applicability of DMCA. I understand its use is becoming more established in the US, but what about in other jurisdictions? Are there parallel procedures there?

Thanks,

Walter

I'm not sure what you mean by "applicability". The DMCA is a statute only in the United States, and thus "holds" only there. But any country which subscribes to the Berne Convention on copyrights should have some sort of copyright statute.

I have heard, though I cannot confirm, that many out-of-US web hosts will accept (that is, act on) a DMCA notice from a US-based victim. If you can't find information to the contrary, the DMCA at least provides a format for your complaint to the host.

Just my opinion, of course; I'm not a lawyer, and I could easily be wrong....

Eliz.
