Audible Magic Expands Its CopySense® Family

New CopySense DMCA Service Automates Management of DMCA Notices

LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwire - March 23, 2010) -  For most colleges and universities, following up on DMCA take-down notices received from copyright owners is a laborious and costly process. Audible Magic's new CopySense DMCA Service automates this process enabling academic institutions to lower their costs as they comply with HEOA provisions requiring them to combat unauthorized distribution of copyrighted works over campus networks.

With the CopySense DMCA Service, DMCA notices are electronically processed immediately upon receipt and the user that caused the notice to be instantly identified, eliminating the labor-intensive, manual processing otherwise required. Once identified, users receive an automated communication of the notice along with automated sanctions imposed by the campus. 

According to Vance Ikezoye, founder and CEO of Audible Magic, "Our goal is to enable colleges and universities to effectively and affordably comply with both the letter and the spirit of the HEOA regulations in ways that best suit each institution's unique needs. Our CopySense family of products and services support what these institutions do best -- leveraging the teachable moment to educate students of the consequences of online theft of copyrighted content such as music or movies."

The CopySense DMCA Service delivers supporting evidence for each DMCA notice thereby reducing the problems of erroneous notices. Automated communication forwards the content of the DMCA notice to the user along with any customized messaging developed by each institution in accordance with its network policies. Campuses can integrate the CopySense DMCA Service with their own judicial systems.

Robust reports provide detailed information on the number of notices received, involved users and follow-up actions, enabling a smooth integration between IT and campus judicial procedures.
