I found my vid on another site. How do I submit a DMCA takedown request?

Here at MV we want to make sure you and only you have a say as to where your content is distributed, that's why we partnered up with DMCAForce and DigiRegs to scan the web regularly for material pirated from our Creators and submit takedown requests to have the content removed as quickly and efficiently as possible. All your vids are imprinted with a unique digital fingerprint which allows our DMCA partners to easily do frequent scans for stolen copies of your vids and submit legally binding takedown requests on your behalf.

In cases where the vids remain up, you can always submit the links to the content to us directly at MV Support using the form below.

When sending these links, make sure to send a link that points directly to the stolen content where the vid is being streamed to ensure the DMCA takedown request is properly submitted. If the file is up for download on a file-sharing site, make sure to send us the page where the file is directly downloadable.

How long does it take a DMCA takedown to come into effect?

It depends! Some sites will be extremely prompt and immediately action a takedown, while others may have little to no moderation and take some time to remove the content. In the case of platforms that use file lockers, the content may have been taken down and re-uploaded. Some sites may even be DMCA non-compliant (see below).

I submitted links to my content, and it's still available online

If you've waited a while and the content is still up, it's very likely that the site hosting the content is DMCA non-compliant. The DMCA is an American law, and while most sites in major jurisdictions abide by the DMCA say or have their own similar laws, unfortunately it's possible to host content in places where the DMCA can't or won't be enforced. This means we can issue takedowns, but it's possible that they won't be actioned.

Please contact help@manyvids.com if you'd like confirmation about whether or not a particular site is non-compliant-- we track several major DMCA non-compliant platforms. 

Still submit to the form above -- it's useful to track these sites, and our DMCA partners can get them de-listed from major search engines. This impacts traffic to pirate sites by upwards of 80%, makes your stolen content hard to find, and strongly discourages piracy.

My content was leaked!

The good news is that it probably wasn't! In the past few years, we've seen several sites (usually with "leak" in the URL) that claim to host leaked content from MV. Content will typically appear on these sites shortly after you post it, making it look like someone has live access to your full content. These are actually phishing sites, and attempting to access the content will lead to prompts to download malicious files or give away personal information (or both-- DO NOT TEST THIS!)

That said, please continue to submit DMCA links to your content so we can issue takedowns for your teasers and thumbnails!
