Digital Millennium Copyright Act or DMCA is a US copyright law that aims to prevent the production and distribution of technology products or services that look to get around measures (known as digital rights management or DRM) that control or limit access to copyrighted material.

The law was passed in October 1998 to protect copyright owners. It also does limit the liability exposure of service providers whose users may use the provider’s service to infringe on copyrights.
