What information is provided to a user whose content is removed due to a copyright claim?

When we receive copyright claims through our online form and remove the reported content, we typically provide the reported user with the following information:

  • Report number
  • Rights owner’s name
  • Email address provided by the reporting party
  • Description of the rights owner’s copyrighted work
  • Description of the removed content

In rare instances (such as when we are contacted by fax, mail or email), we pass through the report number and a description of the removed content, and additional information can be provided upon request.

For any content that was removed under the notice and counter-notice procedures of the United States Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), we will include information about how to submit a counter-notification under the DMCA.
