Twitter Adopts New Copyright Policy

Jeremy Kessel, Twitter’s legal policy manager tweeted about the new policy last weekend and said the new rule enables “more transparency in processing copyright reports by withholding Tweets” as opposed to simply removing them.

“If someone with the permalink tries to navigate to the tweet, they’ll see that it is being withheld for copyright reasons,” Kessel said. 

Site officials will also submit a DMCA request to Chilling Effects, an online archive that publishes copyright infringing messages making the offense even more public.

Last year, Twitter removed over 5,000 tweets and media found in violation of their copyright policies.
