DMCA512 Abuse


An individual or organization abuses the DMCA, particularly its notice-and-takedown provisions.

Typical cases include:

  • Machine-generated DMCA notices
  • Assuming that a link described as containing infringing content actually does and sending a DMCA notice accordingly
  • Sending a DMCA notice where DMCA 512(c) does not apply, and a notice is thus nonsensical
  • Perjuring themselves as proscribed under the DMCA
