    DCMA charging

    Is anyone aware DCMA now charges $10 for a one time take down of a violation?

    No and thank you for sharing. Causes one to ponder why. Causes one to ponder value and worth. I don't know enough of the DCMA to know where past funding came from. Apparently there is a demand and supply is abundant. Causes one to ponder more.

      I was dumbfounded by the charge Tim.  Your ponderings are certainly accurate.

      It costs nothing to send a DMCA notice. You just have to fill it our yourself. You can pay someone else do it, which is was this questions is referring to but then you have to decide if it's worth saving that time to pay someone else to do it.

    This will favorize big companies, which had enough money to pay for takedowns. But small bloggers, from which their content it's stolen don't have anything to do.

      You can still send a DMCA notice for free. Third party companies are just trying to make money by doing it for you, thus saving you time and making them money.

      That's good. I was afraid that now we have to pay for DMCA takedowns.

    DMCA stands for Digital Millennium Copyright Act. It's a set of laws, not an entity that can charge money for something.

    Every web hosting company has a process for filing a DMCA complaint. These are free to file. Don't waste your time going through third-parties. File the standard complaint document with the hosting company, at their abuse address.

      ^ This absolutely.  A 3rd party can charge you if you want, but under the law you have every right to file takedown notices on your own, free of charge.

    Mary, you can file them on your own without going through a 3rd party. HP has a template you can use or look up one of RachaelOhalloran's http://rachaelohalloran.hubpages.com/ hubs on filing DCMAs. She may have a template or at least what information you should include. You send them directly to the owner of the site and the webhost.

      Mary, go into your HP account and click on copied Hubs. You'll see DMCA and a link to file. That link gives you the template you can copy into your email. I'd save it in Word first in case you need it again.

      Thanks so much Sha.  I'll be away for three days.  Not sure I can do it on all my iPad, will when I come back when I find out who they are.

    Not knowing what the DCMA is, I have not heard this information. I am one ignorant woman trying to get smarter.

      Good for you Kathryn, I'm 73 and been working computers everyday for 20 odd years. I have no idea what a DCMA is either. LOL

      DMCA stands for Digital Millenium Copyright Act. Filling out the form and sending it to a website owner who has stolen your content is basically a "takedown notice." After which you are free to file a lawsuit against them for stealing your content.
