- As a Canadian company, why are your customers liable to a US-based law?
- DMCA is a law specific to the US, why does Thinkific adhere to this law?
- What is the DMCA?
DMCA stands for Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
While we're a proudly Canadian company, Thinkific uses Amazon Web Services for our storage which is based in the US.
Given this, while the DMCA is part of the United States copyright law, it is applicable to websites hosted in the US. As such, all sites hosted in the US, like Thinkific sites are bound to obey the law.
