Senate Judiciary Committee holds hearing on DMCA abuse

Katharine Trendacosta and Corynne McSherry offer an important perspective on the Electronic Frontier Foundation site July 31, “What really does and doesn’t work for Fair Use in the DMCA” . They discuss the inadequacies of the Section 512 provisions in practice. 

The op-ed refers to a hearing July 28 “How does the DMCA contemplate limitations and exceptions like Fair Use?”

To play the hearing you have to open it in a new window and move the cursor (at least in Chrome).
The op-ed mentions the situation in the EU with the Copyright Directive where everything in most countries has to go through an upload filter now.
