What If I Receive A Copyright Complaint (DMCA) Notification?

If you receive a notification that your third party content has been removed due to a copyright complaint, it means that the content has been deleted from itel at the request of the content’s owner.

When itel receives a valid counter-notice, we will forward a copy to the person who filed the original complaint. If we do not receive notice within ten (10) business days that the submitter of the original complaint is seeking a court order to prevent further infringement of the content at issue, we will remove the complaint from your record, and we may replace the content that was removed.

There are legal and financial consequences for fraudulent and/or bad faith submissions. Before submitting a counter-notice, be sure that you are the actual rights holder of the removed content or that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed in error, and understand the repercussions of submitting a false claim.
