New Requirement for Online Registration of a Designated Agent under the DMCA
- While there is some uncertainty concerning which types of service providers must register, we recommend that you register a Designated Agent for each of your subsidiaries and affiliates. The Designated Agent may be the same for all of your related entities.
- A Designated Agent may be an individual, a specific position or title held by an individual, a specific department within the service provider’s organization or within a third-party entity, or a third-party entity generally.
- A service provider is required to supply its full legal name, physical street address (not a post office box), any alternate names used by the service provider, and the name, organization, physical mail address (street address or post office box), telephone number, and email address of its Designated Agent.
