When I say you’re running out of time, you may think I’m referring to time needed to buy presents, drawing the absolutely incorrect conclusion that I have not yet purchased a suitable present for my wife. I have. It’s just that she changed the ground rules on me and … oh, never mind, that’s not what I meant anyway.
What I meant is that you’re running out of time to register your DMCA Designated Agent under the new system we reported on earlier this year. Like it or not, agents designated under the old system are no longer valid starting January 1, 2018, so if you are in any way hosting third-party content you’ll want to register a new agent under the new system.
It’s not terribly difficult, so cruise on over to the US Copyright office’s website and register. You’ll need the following information for both the designated agent and the owner or operator of the website (which may or may not be the same):
- Phone number
- E-mail address
Oh, and you’ll need a credit card. You can’t use mine, I have a little more shopping to do.
