If a copyright infringer won't remove their infringing content on their own, you may need to resort to asking the website host or Internet Service Provider to take it down. This is done through submitting a Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) Takedown Notice. There are specific requirements that the statute says have to be contained in the notice for it to be effective. This workbook walks you through each piece of the DMCA notice, then provides you with a template that you can customize and use to submit to the DMCA agent for a particular website.
