DMCA Explained

The DMCA provides two simple, straightforward procedures: (i) a takedown-notice procedure for copyright holders to request that content be removed; and (ii) a counter-notice procedure for users to get content reenabled when content is taken down by mistake.

DMCA takedown notices are used by copyright owners to take down infringing content. Counter notices can be used to correct mistaken takwdown notices. The DMCA creates a copyright liability "safe harbor" for internet service providers hosting allegedly infringing user-generated content. (See U.S. Code, Title 17, Section 512.)
