The Digital Millennium Copyright Act, or DMCA, was passed in 1998 to protect copyright holders by getting infringing content removed, and protect internet service providers (ISPs) from direct or indirect liability for copyright infringement committed by their users. As your internet service provider, HTC has developed an automated process to mitigate this inappropriate use of copyrighted material and give our members every opportunity to protect their accounts against unauthorized or improper claims.
As of September 2017, HTC has taken the following steps to ensure the DMCA is enforced to any member alleged to have committed DMCA violations and they will receive a series of pop-up notification.
Users receiving these notices must acknowledge the messages in order to continue going online.
HTC will give the member two chances to heed our warning.
If violations continue, the member’s internet access may be suspended.
In the fall issue of HTC’s Life Connections magazine, expect to find healthy holiday recipes, a close-up look at a local literacy initiative, a peek behind the curtain at an Horry County theatre, and much, much more!
And, don’t miss our special discussion about cable retransmission fees and how they impact you.
