A Word of Caution

 
Don't forget, that when you make a DMCA request, you do so 'under penalty of perjury'. Committing 'perjury' is subject to criminal procedures, not civil law. If a lawsuit is involved, making bogus, false, deceptive, fraudulent and claims involving bad judgement, can result in criminal repercussions and expensive legal action

Before filing a DMCA request you should ask yourself - Has my content been stolen and is my copyright really being being infringed? Making a DMCA copyright claim can backfire if you are not standing on firm legal ground.

In the lawsuit, Online Policy Group v. Diebold Incorporated, Diebold had to pay $125,000 in penalties and fees for issuing a DMCA takedown demand over a leaked company email that was published on the internet. This was an ill advised law suit resulting from simple bad judgement.
