What happens after I file a DMCA takedown?

After filing the DMCA takedown, the hosting provider will typically respond by doing one of the following:
Removing or disabling access to the infringing material
Notifying the user who posted it of your complaint
Asking for further clarification from you

Once the infringing material has been removed or disabled by the hosting provider, you may need to monitor other sites to ensure that it isn't reposted.

In some cases, sites may not comply or may be unreachable, requiring escalation. If you would like more information on the escalation process, please use the chat box to contact us.

Pro tip: It is recommended that you remove content from the major search engines. This is a reliable process that makes it harder for people to find your unauthorized content even if the offending site hasn't removed it yet.
