Overview Edit

Pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, to have allegedly infringing content removed from a web site, or to have access to an allegedly infringing content disabled, the copyright owner must provide a written notice (DMCA takedown notice) to the service provider with the following information:

Once notice is given to the service provider, or in circumstances where the service provider discovers the infringing material itself, it is required to expeditiously remove, or disable access to, the material.

The DMCA safe harbor provisions do not require the service provider to notify the individual responsible for the allegedly infringing material before it has been removed, but they do require notification after the material is removed.
