Although we are based outside the United States, we respect the rights of copyright owners and thus have implemented certain policies in an effort to voluntarily comply with laws such as the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA"). Accordingly, if you are submitting a copyright infringement takedown request, you will need to provide the following mandatory information: (a) takedown webpage URL and (b) statement of the ownership of this content. In compliance with the DMCA, we only accept copyright infringement takedown requests from content owners or someone officially authorized to act on their behalf. To read more about the requirements of a complete request, we invite you to visit https://www.dmca.com/faq/What-is-a-DMCA-Takedown , and consult with your own counsel. (We do not and cannot provide you with legal advice, and none should be implied from anything on our site.)
Before submitting a copyright infringement takedown request, please consider whether copyright exceptions, such as “fair use” or exceptions for the purposes of quotation, criticism, review, news reporting, caricature, parody or pastiche, apply to the content. If a copyright exception applies, the content cannot not be removed.
Our designated Copyright Agent to receive copyright infringement takedown requests is::
Dr. Daniel Kötz, Attorney-at-Law
Rosenstr. 11a, 40479 Düsseldorf, Germany
Please note that transmitting your takedown request via email instead of using the form above will delay our processing time and may impact its accuracy as well.
