The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) limits the potential liability of online service providers for monetary damages and injunctive relief for copyright infringement. To take advantage of this limitation on liability, an online service provider must file a designation of agent statement with the U.S. Copyright Office, identifying the agent to whom one must send notification of claims of copyright infringement. The service provider must also post such information on its publicly accessible website. The U.S. Copyright Office then makes these designations of agents available to the public through a directory of agents on its website.
