How DMCA Takedown Notices Work – [INFOGRAPHIC]

Web hosting company Nexcess have put together a flowchart explaining how the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) takedown process typically works.

From the ReadWriteWeb article:

When a site is perceived by a copyright owner to run afoul of the DMCA, those rights holders have the option of issuing a takedown request. From there, things can get complicated, or they can be resolved rather quickly. In some cases, legal battles can drag on for years if a site owner and a copyright owner don’t see eye to eye.

The Infographic flow chart highlights how the process can morph into long wielding repetitive affair depending on how communication between the parties goes.
