Frequently Asked Question #136. Someone on LiveJournal is infringing on my copyright. What should I do?

If someone on LiveJournal is infringing upon your copyright by reprinting your images, writing, photographs of yourself, or any other copyrighted material belonging to you, you can make a report through the Abuse Prevention Team.
The Abuse Prevention Team is the designated recipient of copyright complaints under the provisions set forth in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), 17 U.S.C. 512(c). If you do not include any of the information required by law, or you do not provide specific links to both the infringing material and your original work, it will seriously delay or prevent the handling of your request.

Once you have filed this notification with LiveJournal, the person who is allegedly infringing upon your copyright has an opportunity to file a counter-notification disputing your right to claim copyright on the material.
