Removing Copyrighted Photographs From The Internet

Photographs are considered material that is protected by copyright, which simply means other people are not allowed to post your photos without your express permission.

In the United States, you use what is known as a “DMCA Takedown Request” to contact the ISP (“Internet Service Provider”) hosting the illegally-posted content, which will usually result in the immediate removal of the photo(s).
