Content You Want to Report
What type of content are you reporting?
Photo, video or post
Instagram accounts contain many individual photos, videos, captions and comments. It’s uncommon for the copyright in all these pieces of content to belong to one rights owner or infringe only one party’s copyright. If you believe this object is infringing rights owner's copyright in its entirety, you may continue with this report.
Please provide links (URLs) leading directly to the specific content you are reporting.
You can report multiple links (URLs) in this report. To do this, enter links (URLs) in the box below. Enter one link per line.

By submitting this notice, you state: that you have a good faith belief that the reported use described above, in the manner you have complained of, is not authorized by the intellectual property rights owner, its agent, or the law; that the information contained in this notice is accurate; and, under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the intellectual property rights at issue.
Your electronic signature should match your full name.
A report alleging infringement of intellectual property rights must come from the rights owner or someone authorized to report on their behalf (for example: attorney, agent). If you are not the rights owner or their authorized representative, we will not be able to process your report. If you believe others' rights may be infringed, you may wish to ask them to review the
intellectual property section of the Help Center.
