Instructions on How to Get Your Photo Removed From Revenge Sites

  1. Find as many copies (URL's) and versions of the picture as you can. It can be a tough and difficult process but you are the best person to identify this content. Often the image will be cropped or altered in some way so often you can identify it the quickest. Make a list. Like a weed, if you can get to the source, you can stop it from spreading. Often only one website was the source of the uploaded picture or video. It is important to get it removed from there and move on to the other sites, if there are any.
  2. Note: DMCA.com does provide a professional service to locate copies of your photos for takedown. When completing your takedown notice form on the site make sure and request a quote for this service if you are interested.

  3. Do not assume that once your photo or video is off one (Facebook) page the issue is resolved. It could have been copied and uploaded somewhere else. The longer the picture has been up the more likely it has spread to other networks and websites.
  4. Do not become a victim of extortion! Do not send money or a picture of your ID to hosting companies or website owners in order to get your picture removed. This is a serious act of privacy violation and not required within any takedown process, anywhere. If you must pay to have your image taken offline it is extortion or a bribe under most laws. If you must pay or follow some other bizarre process to have your content taken offline, do so with a lawyer, inform the police and where possible, have an internet specialist with you.
  5. Begin Processing (DMCA) Takedowns immediately! The faster the better. Do it now! Staying on top of getting your content taken down means you can stop or slow the spread of pictures.
  6. You can conduct takedowns yourself if you are internet savvy (DMCA.com has a very inexpensive DIY Program)

  8. Use a service like DMCA.com's Professional Takedown Service.
  9. Regardless of the method you use, the quicker the better. Processing takedowns can also help any legal action you have started or will start later. If you choose to conduct the process yourself here are a few important tips:
    1. Follow the (DMCA) Takedown process of website where you have found the pictures or video exactly. If the website has its own policy follow that.
    2. Do not be emotional in your description or request for removal
    3. Do not tell a story or give background or incident details
    4. Clearly the state facts related to the photo or picture usage - it's your picture, or you are in it and you did not give permission to be used in this manner or you own the copyright.
  10. Stop the source. Find out where the content came from and make sure no more theft of your pictures can occur. If the images are on your email, mobile, camera, laptop etc. make sure to remove access to the internet. If someone has gained access to your mobile or cell phone, email, computer files, GoPro, camera or iCloud storage and published your pictures on the internet change your passwords and remove the content.
