DMCA takedown service on the Bolster platform

How does a DMCA takedown work?

When a website owner spots stolen content on the web, they can submit a DMCA takedown form to the offending website’s hosting company. Dozens of blank forms are available through a quick Google Search. They all identify the stolen work, along with its legal source and a statement in good faith that the material was stolen. The site owner or ISP then removes the bogus content fast.

It’s a simple process, but it turns into a hassle when hackers, just like robocallers, pivot to new “innocent” URLs and start afresh. The ensuing game of whack-a-mole ties up live security teams in an endless loop of form-filling and follow-up. An automated DMCA protection and takedown service like ours at Bolster unclogs the datajam by handling requests faster than human hackers can react.

How to file a DMCA takedown request

To file a DMCA takedown request, first fill in a DMCA takedown form. You’ll need the URLs of the illicit website and of the original content on your site. Add a detailed description of your ownership and how the content was stolen, and then assert that you’re issuing the takedown in good faith.

You’ll also need to add a digital or physical signature and your contact information. To save time, most companies use a DMCA takedown service, though not all are created equal. Some are prohibitively expensive with high per-request fees and long lag times.
