By providing detailed information about the infringed content and the copyright holder, the takedown notice enables the ISP or web host to take appropriate action.

How to use the DMCA takedown notice generator

The DMCA takedown notice generator is a tool designed to assist copyright holders in creating effective and legally compliant takedown notices. By entering relevant information, such as contact details, the specific URL(s) of the infringing material, and a description of the copyrighted work, users can generate a customized notice. This eliminates the need for extensive legal knowledge and simplifies the takedown process for individuals who may not have the resources to hire legal professionals.

Three pieces of information are needed to generate a DMCA takedown notice

1. Infringing Link

Where on the internet is your stolen content located? What is the link that you want the content removed from? Be sure to provide the URL or website/webpage link of the content you want removed. If the stolen content is an image or video located on a website provide the direct link of the content contained in the site. Copy and paste the infringing text, or provide the URL of the infringing image if required.

An example link would look like:

2. Source Link

Where was your content located when it was stolen? Was it from your own website? Provide the exact URL where it was stolen from, even if the content has already been removed from its original location. The original URL is still valuable to the notice. If it was not online you can reference cell phone, computer, or camera etc. If it was online such as a website or cloud storage provide the link to the exact page it was stolen from. You can upload the original content to a cloud storage service and provide that URL with an explanation of where it was originally stolen from.

An example link would look like:

3. Description of Infringement

What is the content owner's name and how was the content stolen? How is this content yours? How do you own it? Did you create it, buy it, copyright it? Who is claiming ownership of the content? Who is authorized to file the DMCA Takedown? When did you create the content and when was the content stolen?

An example description would sound like: "My photo I took of myself on my camera was stolen from my Google Drive and was posted on this website without my knowledge and I would like it removed."
