Last updated: February 16, 2022

If your copyright-protected work was posted on without authorization, you can submit a copyright takedown request.

Before you submit a takedown request, you should know:

Copyright exceptions:

You need to consider whether fair use, fair dealing, or a similar exception to copyright law applies. If an exception applies, then the takedown request you submit would be invalid.

Personal info:

If a video is removed for copyright infringement, the name of the copyright owner will be visible on our site in place of the video.

If you give us a valid legal alternative, such as the name of a company or authorized representative, we'll review and apply it if appropriate.

The copyright owner name you enter will become part of the public record of your request.

Your full legal name is required to complete a takedown request.

It may be shared with the uploader of the video removed for copyright infringement.

The primary email address from your takedown request may be shared with the uploader of the video removed for copyright infringement.

Your physical address and phone number will remain confidential unless requested as part of a lawsuit. If we are required to share any information, we’ll notify you before doing so.
