Submitting a DMCA Counter-Notification

If you believe you are the wrongful subject of a DMCA notification, you
may file a counter-notification with Medium by providing the following information to the Designated Agent at the address below:

  • The specific URLs of material that Medium has removed or to which Medium has disabled access.
  • Your name, address, telephone number, and email address.
  • A statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located (or the federal district courts located in the City and County of San Francisco, California if your address is outside of the United States), and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided the original DMCA notification or an agent of such person.
  • The following statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief that the material in question was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or mis-identification.”
  • Your signature.

Upon receipt of a valid counter-notification, Medium will forward it to the notifying party who submitted the original DMCA notification. The original notifying party (or the copyright holder he or she represents) will then have ten (10) days to notify us that he or she has filed legal action relating to the allegedly infringing material. If Medium does not receive any such notification within ten (10) days, we may restore the material to Medium Services.
