For clarity, only DMCA notices should go the Copyright Agent. Any other feedback, comments, requests for technical support and other communications should be directed to the applicable site or service. You acknowledge if you fail to comply with all of the above requirements, your DMCA notice may not be valid.
How to File a Counter Notice
If you believe your content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent or pursuant to the law, to post and use the content, you may send a notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent:
When we receive a valid counter-notice, we will forward a copy to the person who filed the original complaint. If we do not receive notice within 10 business days that the submitter of the original complaint is seeking a court order to prevent further infringement of the content at issue, we will remove the complaint from your account’s record, and we may replace the content that was removed.
There are legal and financial consequences for fraudulent and/or bad faith submissions. Before submitting a counter-notice, be sure that you are the actual rights holder of the removed content or that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed in error, and understand the repercussions of submitting a false claim.
