Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) compliance program moves from Office of Research to IET’s Information Security Office

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) of 1998 is a federal law that is designed to protect Internet Service Providers from copyright infringements done by their network users. The DMCA covers music, movies, software, textbooks - anything that is protected by copyright. This law applies to everyone using the UC Davis network.

On July 1, the Information Security Office (ISO) will take responsibility of the DMCA compliance program and the Designated Agent for UC Davis will be transfer from Jan Carmikle, who retires at the end of June, to Jackson Muhirwe, deputy chief information security officer. More information about the DMCA can be found on IET’s security webpages.
