Facebook not updating
Whether it’s illegally uploaded photos, plagiarized blog posts or stolen videos, Facebook’s copyright policy is increasingly central to the internet.
But those who seek to send a takedown notice to Facebook may find the process more than a little bit intimidating.
While Facebook is known for its intuitive and simple user interface, it never applied that logic to its DMCA process.
While that certainly makes Facebook a behemoth of a social network, it also means that the site sees its share of copyright infringement and plagiarism.
However, Facebook, as with most large web hosts, have registered a DMCA agent with the U. If you have an existing email or fax template you’re comfortable with, you can submit it here and Facebook will, usually, respond (at least they did as of a few years ago).
However, it does delay the process so, if time is of the essence, it may not be the best approach. They haven’t provided an agent in the new system as of this writing, but almost certainly will over the next year.
Furthermore, even if a DMCA notice is legally appropriate, it may not be the best tool for fixing the situation.
If you are unsure if a DMCA notice is appropriate, consult an attorney.
