Copyright Infringement. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (“DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under the U.S. copyright law. If you believe that any content posted is an infringement of your copyright, you may ask us to take down that content by sending us a DMCA Notice.
