As policymakers in Washington, D.C., consider ways to better combat online piracy, NBCUniversal Inc. and other copyright holders gathered on Thursday to discuss the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and called for flexible solutions to protect their content.

NBCUniversal Vice President David Greene, Copyright Alliance CEO Sandra Aistars and Artists Rights Society advocate Bruce Lehman offered their opinions as part of a forum hosted by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Internet Policy Task Force. The group is looking at ways to reform the process for removing infringing online content under the DMCA.
