Attorney Steve® - DMCA takedown bully counter-defense tips. The 512(f) retraction letter.
In this episode of Vondran Legal Hour, Attorney Steve® discusses those "nagging" DMCA takedown trolls who seek to hit up your creative content with:
1. DMCA takedown claims (ex. Etsy, YouTube videos, Apple App Store disputes)
2. Monetization claims (ex. Jumping on your monetization for a video you worked really hard on
3. Pursuing copyright "strikes" (that could force you to lose your channel)
In these instances, you want to have a plan to fight back and reclaim your content especially where there is no infringement (ex. Fair Use) or you have a paid license (this just happened to me on my channel), or the statute of limitations has run, public domain content, etc.
The DMCA 512(f) retraction letter - sent certified mail - may be just the trick you need to fight off the over-aggressive copyright holder.
If you need any help with DMCA disputes, counter-notifications, 512(f) claims, or federal court lawsuits, call us at (877) 276-5084 or go to VondranLegal.com
