Participants in the Department of Commerce's DMCA Multistakeholder Forum have come up with a list of "good, bad and situational" practices as they pertain to notice and takedown processes; those are the processes, established in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), for identifying and removing pirated copy from the Web.
