Digital Millennium Copyright Act

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA") provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law.

If you believe in good faith that materials hosted by Microsoft infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send us a request to remove the material, or block access to it. The notice must include the following information:


If you have posted allegedly infringing material and received notification to that effect from Microsoft, you may elect to send us a counter notice. Such counter notice must be a written communication provided that includes the following:



All notices and counter-notices described above should be sent to Ira Schlussel, one ePrize Drive, Pleasant Ridge, Michigan 48069 or [email protected]

We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice as the above-stated requirements may have changed. Also, please note that under Section 512(f) any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability. It is the policy of Microsoft Corporation, to terminate the account of any user of its websites that is a copyright infringer.
