My name is INSERT NAME and I am the INSERT TITLE of INSERT COMPANY
NAME. A website that your company hosts (according to WHOIS information) is
infringing on at least one copyright owned by my company.
An article was copied onto your servers without permission. The original
ARTICLE/PHOTO, to which we own the exclusive copyrights, can be found at:

The unauthorized and infringing copy can be found at:
PROVIDE WEBSITE URL
This letter is official notification under Section 512(c) of the Digital Millennium
Copyright Act (”DMCA”), and I seek the removal of the aforementioned infringing
material from your servers. I request that you immediately notify the infringer of this
notice and inform them of their duty to remove the infringing material immediately,
and notify them to cease any further posting of infringing material to your server in
the future.
Please also be advised that law requires you, as a service provider, to remove or
disable access to the infringing materials upon receiving this notice. Under US law a
service provider, such as yourself, enjoys immunity from a copyright lawsuit provided
that you act with deliberate speed to investigate and rectify ongoing copyright
infringement. If service providers do not investigate and remove or disable the
infringing material this immunity is lost. Therefore, in order for you to remain immune
from a copyright infringement action you will need to investigate and ultimately
remove or otherwise disable the infringing material from your servers with all due
speed should the direct infringer, your client, not comply immediately.
I am providing this notice in good faith and with the reasonable belief that rights my
company owns are being infringed. Under penalty of perjury I certify that the
information contained in the notification is both true and accurate, and I have the
authority to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright(s) involved.
Should you wish to discuss this with me please contact me directly.
Thank you.
