So the National Music Publishers Association is seeking to hold Elon Musk liable for rampant copyright infringement:
“Twitter stands alone as the largest social media platform that has completely refused to license the millions of songs on its service. Twitter knows full well that music is leaked, launched, and streamed by billions of people every day on its platform. No longer can it hide behind the DMCA and refuse to pay songwriters and music publishers.”
My inclination is to believe that anything that takes money from Elon Musk is a good idea. The possibility of collateral damage means I am not so sure in this case. Is it wise to discard the policy considerations behind the Online Copyright Infringement Liability Limitation (“safe harbor”) section of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act?
