Improving the Efficiency of the Notice and Takedown System: Public Interest Principles

CDT and several allies submitted comments to the U.S. Commerce Department in preparation for the next public meeting it is hosting on possible ways to improve the notice-and-takedown process. Based on the consensus that emerged from an earlier meeting in March, the initial focus of this inquiry will be the idea of developing more standardized approaches to notice-and-takedown.

Our comments suggest principles for using standards to improve the way the process works for Internet users — the posters and readers of online content.
