Meta doesn’t allow content that violates someone else’s intellectual property rights, including copyright and trademark.
If you believe that your intellectual property rights have been violated because of content you find on Meta, you can request deletion of that content by following the process described below.
Notification of Infringement
If you believe that any content we host on Meta infringes a copyright that you own, you may submit a notification under the DMCA by providing our designated copyright agent (“Designated Agent”) the following information by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by regular mail:
- Your complete contact information (full name, mailing address and phone number).
- A description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed.
- A description of the content on our site that you claim infringes your copyright.
- Information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material on Meta. The easiest way to do this is by providing web addresses (URLs) leading directly to the allegedly infringing content.
- A declaration that:
- You have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted content described above is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.
- The information in your notice is accurate.
- Under penalty of perjury, you are the owner or authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive copyright that is allegedly infringed.
Please consult legal counsel or see 17 U.S.C. Section 512(c)(3) to confirm these requirements. We’ll send a copy of your notice (which will include the personal information you provide) to the individual that uploaded the allegedly infringing content.
If your content is removed under the DMCA because of a mistake, you can use the information in the message we send you to file a counter-notification. When we receive an effective DMCA counter-notification, we forward it to the party that originally reported the content. The information they receive includes your contact information, which they can use to contact you.
If we provide your counter-notification to the party that originally reported the content and they don't notify us that they have filed a court action seeking an order to keep the content down, we’ll restore eligible content under the DMCA. This process can take up to 14 business days.
Our Designated Agent to receive notifications and counter-notifications of claimed infringement can be reached as follows:
Chan Zuckerberg Initiative Foundation
Attention: Meta Copyright Agent
PO BOX 8040
Redwood City, CA 94063
For clarity, only DMCA notices should go to our Designated Agent. Any other feedback, comments, requests for technical support or other communications should be directed to us through email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org if it relates to personal information. You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements of this section, your DMCA take-down notice may not be valid.
