The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) is a United States copyright law that provides online service providers who have content on their sites to be relieved from liability for copyright infringement if they promptly remove the offending content once notified of an alleged infringement by the copyright owner or his designated agent.
You may file a complaint with BangkokPunters and its designated agent if you believe that content hosted by BangkokPunters is violating your rights under US Copyright Law by email, which is as follows: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If the Copyright Owner believes that their copyright work has been copied without permission, you must provide the following information to BangkokPunters. Your DMCA takedown notice must contain the following information:
- Provide an electronic or physical signature.
- Provide a description of the copyrighted work that is claimed as infringed.

- Copyright Owner or its designated Agent who make misrepresentations with regards to the copyright infringement may be liable for damages incurred as a result of removing or blocking the alleged copyrighted work.
