Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) Notice
If you believe that material available on our sites infringes on your copyright(s), please notify us by providing a DMCA notice. Upon receipt of a valid and complete notice, we will remove the material and make a good faith attempt to contact the user who uploaded the material by email.
Mogr.com a platform for motion designers, CGI and VFX artists. It might happen that they use copyrighted materials in their videos, image thumbnails or transform the materials into something original of their own. As such, before submitting a DMCA notice, it’s important to consider if the manner in which the material is used falls under fair use. If you are not sure whether material located on a Mogr.com site infringes your copyright, or if it is subject to fair use protections, you should first consider seeking legal advice.
Please be advised that you may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) if you materially misrepresent that material or activity is infringing. We have and will seek to collect those damages.
Your DMCA notice will be forwarded to the party that made the material available, and also may be sent to third parties such as ChillingEffects.org. A note will also be placed on the site in question detailing the name of the copyright holder who submitted the takedown notice.
Please follow these steps to file a notice:
- Contact the user who has posted it directly. Go to the video page in question and leave a comment with your complaint to see if the matter can be resolved directly between you and the user.
- Send your complaint to our designated agent via email with details descried below, if the issue cannot be resolved directly with the user.
As required by the DMCA, we have a policy to terminate users and/or sites that we consider to be repeat infringers. Although we won’t share the specifics of our repeat infringer policy (we don’t want anyone to game the system, after all), we believe that it strikes the right balance of protecting the rights of copyright owners as well as protecting legitimate users from wrongful termination. Please note that notices that are successfully countered, rejected on fair use grounds, or deemed to be fraudulent are not counted against a user or site.

Sometimes a video page owner will disagree with the DMCA takedown notice, believing that they are lawfully using the content. We encourage site owners to submit a counter notice if this is the case. After reviewing the counter notice for completeness, we reply to the site owner and notify the copyright holder, providing them with a copy.
Our DMCA Process
The process begins when a copyright holder (or someone acting on their behalf) submits a Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) takedown notice to us, claiming that their content is published on WordPress.com without their permission. They can submit a DMCA takedown notice via email, or printed letter. After that, here’s what happens:
- We review the notice.
- If the notice is complete and valid, we remove the content.
- We notify the site owner and reply to the copyright holder to let them know we’ve taken action.
- We add a strike to the site owner’s account if they don’t counter the notice.
- If the site owner believes they have rights to use the content or that the notice was submitted incorrectly, we review and process their counter notice.
- We restore the content if the copyright holder doesn’t take further legal action within 10 business days.
