Copyright Office NPRM indicaties desire to strip sites of 512(c) protection

Eric Goldman explains here.  We already could tell that the Office was interested in shrinking the safe harbors; apparently the Office wants to do that in part by purging the list of registered DMCA agents every three years.  As someone who had the OTW's initial registration bounced for not having a fax number (we ... don't have a fax machine?) (I used mine in the end), I have a bit of whiplash on the technical requirements side.  Per the NPRM, written comments are due June 24.
