DMCA TAKE DOWN INFORMATION FOR AUTHORS

DMCA TAKE DOWN INFORMATION 

FOR AUTHORS


As an author myself, I have been doing DMCA Take down notices to websites for a long time. It is a hassle but worth it as well. I highly recommend you read the steps on: http://stephanielawton.com/2012/06/24/for-writers-steps-to-deal-with-book-piracy/

I have attached a pdf file to this article that fellow authors can download and use to send take down notices to websites that are hosting copyright material and to the servers they are hosted on.

Make sure you sure google, bing, whatever your preference is and search for the following:

author name, book name, epub

author name, book name, pdf

author name, book name, pdf shared

author name, book name +free online

author name, book name +free

author name, book name, +torrent

author name, book name + download free

author name, book name + mobi

You are sure to come up with links to the many pirated book forums, download sites and servers who host downloads for pirates.

To issue Google your DMCA Take down notice so they remove the links to the copyrighted material, they have a submission form for you to fill out at: 

https://support.google.com/legal/troubleshooter/1114905?hl=en just click on the bubble that pertains to the type of site that is hosting your copyrighted material and it will take you to the submission form.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To issue Bing your DMCA Takedown Notice to remove search links go to the link below:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Use the same DMCA Takedown Notice at the bottom of the page in .doc format or you can use this provided by Author Stephanie Lawson on her blogpost:

Attn: Copyright Agent, [list illegal file share site here]
Pursuant to 17 USC 512(c) (3) (A), this communication serves as a statement that:

  2. These exclusive rights are being violated by material available upon your site at the following URL(s): [list URLs];
  3. I have a good faith belief that the use of this material in such a fashion is not authorized by the copyright holder, the copyright holder’s agent, or the law;
  4. Under penalty of perjury in a United States court of law, I state that the information contained in this notification is accurate, and that I am authorized to act on the behalf of the exclusive rights holder for the material in question;

Below is a list of the sites that offer pirated e-books and materials and are a great place to check for your books that you worked so hard on. All of the links below are clickable and some sites may be defunct by now but, they were current at the time I recorded them all when searching for my own books being pirated. 

Disclaimer: For anyone who is looking to search for free books, be aware that by Copyright law, downloading any pirated books is illegal and is punishable to the fullest extent of the law and downloaders have been prosecuted too! Authors do price their books with their readers in mind and it is not unreasonable for you, as the reader to have to pay $2.99 for a book the author worked extremely hard to produce for you!

Futhermore, be careful who you ask to review your book authors, legitimate bloggers and reviewers use extreme confidentiality with your books and will never share them but there are those who claim to be reviewers who are actually just uploading your books to pirated sites. I myself besides being an author am a professional book reviewer and you can bet your butt that I use the upmost confidentiality with books I read, they are in a password protected file on my computer and after they are read and the review written, I have a special program on my computer that shreds the file so that it cannot in any way remain on my hard drive. That is for the protection of the authors who have honored me with a request for a review, that is something I take very seriously.

Copyright Policy for mobilism.org (they don't follow their own policy either)


Copyright policy
Last modified: 15 April 2013

Mobilism does not condone, allow or permit copyrighted content to be uploaded to our servers. Please ensure you read and understand this policy before uploading to Mobilism servers or filing a copyright infringement notice.


DMCA
Mobilism accepts DMCA infringement notices for copyrighted material.

External infringements
To file an infringement notice for a file that is not hosted on Mobilism servers (subdomains ending in .mobilism.org), please follow the copyright infringement process of the site the file is hosted on. Mobilism does not have access to remove files on external services and therefore may not respond to copyright infringement notices relating to files on external services.

Internal infringements
Mobilism may remove pages that link to copyrighted material. To file a copyright infringement notice with Mobilism, you must provide written communication using one of two methods set forth below. By filing a copyright infringement notice you understand and accept if you materially misrepresent that a product or activity is infringing on your copyright, you will be liable for damages including costs and attorney fees.

Option One, Email: Your notice must contain all of the following to be accepted:
  • Details of the copyrighted work that you believe is infringed upon including its location under the mobilism.org domain.
  • An email address where Mobilism can contact you.
  • Information and/or proof that you are the copyright holder or authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.
  • The statement: "I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials described above as allegedly infringing is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law. I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed."
  • A digital signature.

Mobilism will generally handle complaints within 48 hours of the complaint being received. The contact details for filing a copyright infringement notice can be found on our contact us page.

Option Two, Registering as a Developer/Author/Other copyright holder or representitive: Alternatively to filing a copyright complaint by email, you may register on the forum and send a private message (PM) to the Section Head of the forum where the infringing content was posted. Section heads are listed on the index under the title of each section. Your first notice must include all of the following to be accepted:
  • Details of the copyrighted work that you believe is infringed upon including its location under the mobilism.org domain.
  • Information and/or proof that you are the copyright holder or authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.
  • The statement: "I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials described above as allegedly infringing is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law. I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed."

Once your identity is confirmed, subsequent emails are only required to have a link to the infringing content and the statement of the last bulletpoint. Messaging section heads directly will generally result in much faster removal than emailing us.

Repeat infringers
Any users of Mobilism services who repeatedly upload copyrighted material to Mobilism servers may have a permanent ban placed on their account.
