How Do You Remove Unauthorized Content?
More often then not, in an effort to remain on the right side of the law, the majority of websites adhere to the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act).
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) is a United States copyright law that implements two 1996 treaties of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). It criminalizes production and dissemination of technology, devices, or services intended to circumvent measures (commonly known as digital rights management or DRM) that control access to copyrighted works. It also criminalizes the act of circumventing an access control, whether or not there is actual infringement of copyright itself.
eBook Guard Dog approaches the distributors and websites who are allowing users to access your products for free and serves them with a DMCA notice informing them of a copyright breach. The majority of website owners are very compliant and the offending content is removed.
