The internet is a medium for more than just email and web browsing. Today, many internet users utilize the internet to access and share music, movies, and other types of media. Copyright law has attempted to keep up with the dynamic nature of the internet; however, this Comment posits it has only been marginally successful. The author examines whether the Safe Harbor Rule of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DCMA) is sufficient in balancing the need to protect copyright owners against the need for Internet Service Providers to be protected from third-party user suits. In doing so, the author concludes the DCMA is insufficient.
