Issue: Whether the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit erred in concluding that the affirmation of a good-faith belief that a given use of material is not authorized “by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law,” required under Section 512(c) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, may be purely subjective and, therefore, that an unreasonable belief — such as a belief formed without consideration of the statutory fair use factors — will not subject the sender of a takedown notice to liability under Section 512(f) of the DMCA.
