FAQ: Why did I receive a DMCA takedown notice?

You received a DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) takedown notice because:

  1. An author or their authorized representative has identified their copyrighted material on your website.
  2. This material is being shared without the author’s permission.
  3. The author or their representative has requested removal of the infringing content.

Key points to understand:

  • We act on behalf of authors to protect their intellectual property rights.
  • The DMCA allows authors to safeguard their work from unauthorized distribution.
  • Hosting an author’s copyrighted material without permission is illegal, even if you didn’t upload it yourself.

Next steps:

  1. Review the notice to identify the specific content the author claims is infringing.
  2. Remove or disable access to the material promptly.
  3. Inform us once you’ve taken action.
