Facebook DMCA

It's important to note that submitting false DMCA notices can result in legal action, so make sure you have a good-faith belief that the material is infringing on your copyright before submitting a DMCA notice.

Here's how you can submit a DMCA notice to Facebook (Meta):

Identify the infringing material. Before submitting a DMCA notice to Facebook, you need to identify the material that is infringing your copyright. Make sure to gather evidence, such as a link to the post and a copy of the original work.
Submit a notice of infringement. Once you have identified the infringing material, you can submit a notice of infringement to Facebook. To do so, you need to visit Facebook's DMCA page and fill out the online form.
Wait for Facebook's response. Once you have submitted a notice of infringement, Facebook will review the claim and remove the infringing material if it is found to be in violation of copyright law. Facebook will also notify the user who posted the infringing material of the claim.

You can also submit a claim to Facebook's Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) designated agent at More information is available on this page. Please note that specific requirements apply.
