DMCA Takedown Notice: How to Issue a Copyright Infringement Notice in Germany

German Intellectual Property Lawyers

If you want to remove content from the internet in the USA that violates copyright law, you generally use the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) takedown notice. This US copyright instrument guarantees the protection of intellectual property in the digital space. The DMCA Takedown Notices are specific to the US legal system, so they have no legal relevance in the German legal system. However, Germany has its own mechanisms to effectively counter copyright infringements in the digital space – such as the copyright warning notice under § 97a UrhG (German Copyright Act).

In this context, Schlun und Elseven Rechtsanwälte offers private individuals and companies comprehensive legal assistance in all matters relating to copyright, intellectual property and trade mark law. Our IP lawyers represent both copyright owners and those accused of copyright infringement. If you have been confronted with an allegation of copyright infringement or are considering issuing a warning letter for such an infringement, our lawyers will be at your side to enforce your rights and interests quickly and effectively.
