The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) was designed to protect sites that aggregate content (think of YouTube here). The DCMA allows owners of copyrighted work to file a takedown notice to an ISP if they feel their work is being infringed. The DMCA also limits the liability of websites if one of their users posts material that constitutes copyright infringement. Companies should have Compliance Policies in place to make sure the comply with this ever changing area of law.
