Copyright Office Fucks Over Thousands Of Sites With Plans To Remove Their DMCA Safe Harbors

If you want to make use of the DMCA's safe harbors -- which create a clear safe harbor for websites to avoid liability of infringing material posted by users -- then you have to first register with the Copyright Office. Larger corporate sites already know this, but many, many smaller sites do not.
