DMCA Complaints

Last updated: 2020-04-10

Material that I own the copyright for is being distributed using Sidestreet resources without my permission. How do I submit a Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) notice to Sidestreet?


The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) is the United States law governing claims that copyright-protected material is being distributed online.

If you believe that our resources are being used to host or distribute copyrighted material that you own the copyright for without your permission, first consider whether there is an exception to copyright that applies in this case(such as fair use). If after considering this you would still like to make a copyright complaint, you may wish to reach out directly to the site operator using the contact details provided on their site. Alternatively, to submit a DMCA notice to us, please follow the steps outlined below. Please remember that only the copyright owner or their authorized representative may file a report of copyright infringement.

Steps to submit a DMCA notice to Sidestreet

  1. Gather the following information:
  • An electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest;
  • A description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed upon;
  • A description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Site;
  • Your address, telephone number, and e-mail address;
  • A statement by you that you have a good-faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;
  • A statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf.

Send the information to [email protected]

Note: The Sidestreet Abuse team will not open attachments under any circumstance. You must provide any necessary information in plaintext.

If you provide your notice in the body of an email you don’t need to provide a physical signature.

What happens next?

Once we receive your DMCA notice, you will receive an automated email acknowledging receipt of your notice. If we have questions about your notice, we will email you back asking for more information and we request that you respond to our email so that we can continue looking into your report.

If your DMCA notice is complete and valid and the reported content is on our infrastructure, we will take action expeditiously including contacting our customer to remove or disable access to the infringing content. Whenever we remove content in response to a DMCA notice, we provide a copy of the original complaint as well as your contact information to our customer. If our customer does not believe that the content is infringing and/or the content should not be removed, they may reach out to you directly to resolve the issue or they may submit a counter-notice to us under the DMCA.

Repeat infringer policy

Sidestreet terminates the accounts of repeat infringers in appropriate circumstances at our discretion.
