How To Submit A Copyright Takedown Request

Getting your Script, App Template, Plugins, Themes or Design removed can very difficult and frustrating. Most authors do not know where to start.

If the copyrighted material is published on our platform, you can simply report copyright infringement by submitted a support ticket through our help center. If it happens on other websites it’ll require a few extra steps to get it removed.

1. Find the contact information of site owner

First think you have to do is to find the contact information of the owner of the website. If you lucky the website has a contact form or email address listed. If not you can take some extra steps to be able to contact the owner. 

If no contact information can be found on the website itself, there is a good chance you can obtain contact information through the Domain register. For this you can use ICANN. This will give information about how to contact the owner and often also information about the company hosting the website.

2. Submit a DMCA takedown request

Once you have found where to send your request for removal it is now time to get the request itself ready. To start you need to search for “DMCA takedown form template” on Google and you will receive many hits. You can also use this great tool to generate a DMCA takedown request. Once the DMCA takedown request is ready you can submit it using the obtained contact information of the site owner.
