What if I get an intellectual property complaint (DMCA) notification?

If you've gotten a notification that one of your posts has been removed for a copyright or trademark complaint, it means the content owner asked us to remove it.

If you think we made a mistake removing your post, you can file a counter-notice. When we get a valid counter-notice, we'll remove the complaint from your account's record. Note: There are legal and financial consequences for fraudulent or bad faith counter-notices. Before submitting a counter-notice, make sure you have a good faith belief that we removed the content in error, and that you understand the repercussions of submitting a false claim.
