If your copyright-protected work was uploaded on Dripshipper without authorization, you can submit a copyright takedown request. Submitting a takedown request will start a legal process.

Before you submit a takedown request, you should know:

  • Copyright exceptions: You need to consider whether fair use, fair dealing, or a similar exception to copyright law applies. If an exception applies, then the takedown request you submit would be invalid.

  • Personal info:

    • Your full legal name is required to complete a takedown request. It may be shared with the Dripshipper user of the removed content for copyright infringement.

    • The primary email address from your takedown request may be shared with the Dripshipper user of the removed content removed for copyright infringement. The user might get in touch with you to resolve their copyright strike.

    • Your physical address and phone number will remain confidential unless requested as part of a lawsuit.

How to submit a takedown request

The fastest and simplest way to submit a copyright takedown request is to email dan@doughtyorg.com. The copyright owner or agent authorized to act on the owner’s behalf should submit the request.

Do not make false claims. Misuse of the request process, such as submitting false information, may result in the suspension of your account or other legal consequences.

To request a copyright infringement notification for non-video content, you must include the required info listed below. Without this info, we can’t proceed with your request.

Submit this info in the body of an email (not in an attachment) to dan@doughtyorg.com:

1. Your contact info

Dripshipper and the uploader of the content you’re requesting to remove may need to get in touch with you about your request. In your request, include one or more of the following:

  • Your email address

  • Your physical address

  • Your telephone number

2. Description of your copyrighted work

In your request, make sure you clearly and completely describe your copyrighted non-video content you’re trying to protect.

If you believe more than one of your copyrighted works have been infringed, the law allows a representative list of these works to be included in your request.

3. Specific URLs of the content in question

Your request must include specific links to the non-video content you believe infringes your rights. Links must be sent in a specific URL format. General information such as channel name or channel URL is not adequate.

4. Agree to and include the following two statements:

“I have a good faith belief that the use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.”

"The information in this notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, I am the owner, or an agent authorized to act on behalf of the owner, of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.”

5. Your signature

Complete removal requests need the physical or electronic signature of the copyright owner or an agent authorized to act on their behalf.

To meet this requirement, the copyright owner or authorized agent may enter their full legal name as their signature at the bottom of the request. A full legal name should be a first and last name, not a company name.
