Does anybody have any experience in canceling or retracting their DMCA complaint? I talked to one of the site owners who published my hub in his site and it would seem that there was just some sort of misunderstanding between the two of us. To make it short, I basically told him I'll see if I can cancel my complaint. Now, I'm trying to find a source telling me how but I can't find anything.
AEvans, thanks for mentioning my name.
EDIT: In view of what you have written below, a retraction of your DMCA complaint is not the answer. You could grant him a license, which he can then forward to Google. Or you could stand by your filing.
A DMCA complaint is a request to investigate. As long as you have been truthful about your copyright ownership and acted in good faith based on the information you had at the time of filing, there should be nothing for you to worry about.
You can counter anything by providing the other party with a formal notification executed by you. But why you would do so needs to be thought over huh?
I mean.. you currently hold the best position, having previously filed the document. You know that often if you take your foot off the back of their neck... well you know
I was thinking about filing a claim against a hubber here of 7 months, who somehow today flaunts his avatar with a copy of my pup
That cute pup???!!! Even I would copy that PD .
Uhm, seriously, it's a long story. Apparently I gave him my permission to publish an excerpt of that hub and he took it to mean he can publish the whole thing. I guess I should have contacted him before Google but then again I was afraid he will ignore me - which in fact he did until he received the notice from Google. *sigh*
Well that seems to be merely oneway traffic for him Em.
Surely you know what you agreed to with your work?
If the current terms aren't suitable to him, then he needs to remove the work and any revenue opportunities that he gleans from it.... as it is yours and you hold copyright.
Do you need the drama? - Nope!
Do you chose to be dictated to on this? - Nope!
Ditch him Em.. it's easier than withdrawing your claim.
It's only hurting him.. and that's what the claim was for wasn't it?

Someone copied one of my Hubs and uploaded it to Slideshare, and I'm trying to file a DMCA complaint. However it's asking for the "Copyright Registration Number" of my Hub (I believe) and which country it's registered in. I'm not sure exactly if I have this info, or where to find it. I'm...

I wanted to share an email that I received four days after filing a DMCA complaint against copied material I found upon searching. This is not the first positive result I have had from various DMCA complaints filed with Google. It is not hard, does not take a lot of time and you get...

I had a hub copied by another site. I sent a DMCA complaint and rather than removing my hub, they changed the title and the wording slightly. Is altering a hub for use on another site without the author's permission considered legal? Is this now considered a completely different...

I have two Christmas hubs that are copied in multiple places. Most are just entire capsules. What should I do when they are on a lot of sites. File a complaint on each and every one? This will take forever. They both got extreme traffic last year.
