After the recent abuse of DMCA provisions to attack popular free
software projects, the Software Freedom Conservancy has initiated a
discussion on a pledge text whose adoption may reduce such issues.
Some people here may be interested.
DMCA Cooperation Pledge, Version NO-RELEASE-YET
We pledge that, regarding any and all alleged copyright infringement and/or
alleged promulgation of circumvention techniques, by any software project
that is licensed in good faith under an OSI-Approved License, that we will
give notice to the project, and take no action of copyright enforcement or
other legal action (including but not limited to DMCA takedown due to
copyright infringement or DMCA §1201 violations), for at least 30 days from
the date of notice of our concerns made to the project.

discuss drafting of a DMCA Cooperation Pledge — based on my proposal two
weeks ago </blog/2020/nov/13/widevine-dmca-takedown/>.
