File a DMCA complaint


Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA)

If you are a Rex Chimex Blog author and you have seen your article published elsewhere or maybe you saw your article published on rexchimex.com without your prior permission, please go through this article that explains how to file DMCA complaints for content usage without permission.

If you do find that some or all of the content of one of your articles has been copied and republished without your permission, you may file a DMCA complaint with the person who posted the content or the site hosting that content.

To file a notice of infringement with a person or site, you must provide a written communication, by mail/post, email, or fax, that sets forth the items specified below.

Please note that you will be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys' fees) if you materially misrepresent that a product or activity is infringing your copyrights. If Rex Chimex Blog should publish your work without your permission, we are open to dialogue and negotiations.

To expedite the site's ability to process your request, please use the following format (including section numbers):

1. Identify in sufficient detail the copyrighted work that you believe has been infringed upon (for example, "The copyrighted work at issue is the text that appears on the link - http://www.rexchimex.com/article-link.com").

2. Identify the material that you claim is infringing the copyrighted work listed in item #1 above (for example, “The following page infringes on my copyrighted work whose link is - http://theirsite.com/Infringing_content”).

3. Provide information reasonably sufficient to allow the person or website to contact you (email address is preferred).

4. Include the following 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."

5. Include the following statement: "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."

6. Sign the paper.

7. Send the written communication to the person or website's mailing address, fax number, or email, with the subject line "DMCA Complaint." If sending an email, it is best to include the complaint in the body of the email and not an attachment, as many do not open attachments due to security concerns.


SAMPLE of a DMCA Complaint -

I am writing to you to avail myself of my rights under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). This letter is a Notice of Infringement as authorized in section 512 of the U.S. Copyright Law.

1. The copyrighted work at issue is the text that appears on:


2. The URLs where my copyrighted material is located include:


3. My contact information is as follows:

Magu Morris
22 Crescent Rd, Cape Town
magum@gmail.com

4. 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.

5. 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.

Magu Morris


Finding the Right Person to Contact
There are three general stages when it comes to filing DMCA complaints:

1. Filing the complaint with the person who posted your content without permission.

Find the email address of the website or person (contact us via email – rexchimex@live.com). If you cannot find the email address for the website that has published your copyrighted content, you can utilize WHOIS to find the person associated with the site's domain.

Simply type in the URL to the text box, then send your DMCA Complaint to the email address associated with that domain. You can also check with the United States Copyright Office to see if the site hosting your content has a designated copyright agent.

2. Filing the complaint with that individual's web host

Filing the complaint with that individual's web host if you cannot find a site's owner or a designated copyright agent, you may be able to find a site's hosting service and file a DMCA with the hosting service directly. There are easy-to-find online resources that you can use to do this.

3. Filing the complaint with Google

Filing the complaint with Google if you do not get a response from the person or site with which you have filed your DMCA complaint, you may then file a DMCA complaint with Google(select "Web Search") and Bing (email dmcaagnt@microsoft.com) and try to get the page de-indexed.

Once a webpage has been de-indexed, there is a very small chance that your stolen work will be discovered by others because there will be no way for online searchers to find it (unless they already know of the page and navigate directly to it).
