Professional Takedown Service


What can you do when private videos are posted on website without permission?

  1. Don't Panic. Respond quickly. The faster the better. Be confident. Get help.
  2. Contact the police - especially if:
    1. You or the person in the video were underage.
    2. The perpetrator of this crime is known to you and you never gave permission for the videos to be shared.
    3. Note: Often the authorities can help with the perpetrators of the crime but are unable to act if the videos have been uploaded to servers located outside their legal jurisdiction. Be prepared to deal with getting your videos taken down as a separate issue.
  3. 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 video removed. This is a serious act of privacy violation and not required within any takedown process, anywhere. If you must pay to have your video taken offline it is extortion or a bribe under most laws. If you must pay or follow some other bizarre process to have your video taken offline do so with a lawyer, inform the police and where possible, have an internet specialist with you. Do not pay money to anyone - do not give in to blackmail. If you pay them once they will come back again and again.
  4. Find as many copies and versions as you can. You are the best person to identify this video. Often it 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 at the source, you can stop it from spreading. Often only one website was the source of the uploaded video. It is important to get it removed from there and move on to the other sites, if there are any.
    1. It's wrong to assume that once your video is off one website the issue is resolved. It could have been copied and uploaded somewhere else. The longer the video has been up the more likely it has spread to other networks and websites.
  5. Begin Processing (DMCA) Takedowns immediately! The faster the better. Do it now! Staying on top of getting your video taken down means you can stop or slow the spread. You can conduct takedowns yourself ( has a very inexpensive DIY Program), use a lawyer or use a service like Professional Takedown Service. Regardless of the method you use, the quicker the better. Processing takedown 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 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 video usage - it's your video, or you are in it and you did not give permission to be used in this manner or you own the copyright.
    5. Stop the source. Find out where the video came from and make sure no more theft of your videos can occur. If the video is 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 nude videos on the internet without your permission change your passwords and remove the video.

If you have questions about your situation, we can help. Submit your takedown questions here: Be as detailed as possible. Include as many links as possible. Include complete details on video ownership and source.
