The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) has the following rules about how to send DMCA notices of infringement and DMCA counter-notices:

Essential requirements to consider:

Please review the following prerequisites:

Let's say you think that something on (the "Site" or "we") or that can be accessed through it breaks copyright. In that case, you may send an infringement notice to, which must include all of the following information:

  • The signature of a legally authorized representative of the intellectual property owner whose rights are said to have been violated. You can send your signature electronically by typing your name.
  • A detailed description of the work alleged to infringe.
  • A detailed description of the material you think is infringing, including its exact location, so that we can find it. Please include the listing URL for each item you believe is infringing.
  • The notifier's name and contact information, including name, address, phone number, and email address
  • A statement from the person sending the notice that the copyright owner, agent, or law does not allow this.
  • A declaration that all the information in this notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner's representative.

If you falsely claim something is infringing, you could have to pay damages, such as costs and attorney fees. If you're not sure if the content is infringing, you should talk to a lawyer before sending a notice to (the "Site" or "we"). Other legal consequences may follow fraudulent or abusive messages.
