Note: although the DMCA is part of US Copyright law, a DMCA Takedown does not always require the content to be copyrighted in order to process a takedown notice and for the content to be taken down by the website owner or OSP.

In other words, the fact the content is yours, or if the subject in the photo or video is you, it can be sufficient enough to process a takedown notice AND for the content to be taken down.
