WHAT IT IS: TELLING US TO REMOVE COPYRIGHTED OR ABUSIVE CONTENT
If you discover that one of the blogs we host is illegally using your copyrighted material (e.g. text, images, your likeness) or is abusive against you (e.g. defamation of character), you should submit a DMCA notice as described below.
We take these claims seriously and we will act as quickly as possible, typically within a few business hours (though we can’t always guarantee that).

If multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site.
