The Digital Millennium Copyright Act provides some new approaches to protect copyrighted material on the Internet. In particular, for sites which employ products or services to prevent unauthorized access to copyrighted works (such as video, audio, text files, or computer software) or which use a digital rights management system to identify and control access to copyrighted works, these laws allow for lawsuits (and in some cases file criminal charges) against those who are violating these sections.
