How do I provide a counter-notice to a Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) notice?

Our Agent for Notice of Claims of Copyright Infringement can be reached via email at ec2-abuse@amazon.com or abuse@amazonaws.com.

The counter-notice must include all the following information:

  1. The material alleged to be infringing, including its location.
  2. A statement by you declaring under penalty of perjury that you have a good-faith belief that the material at issue was either misidentified or mistakenly removed.
  3. Your name, address, and telephone number.
  4. A statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal district court for the judicial district in which your address is located, and that you accept service of process from the person who provided the complaint set forth above.
    Note: If you're located outside the United States, you must state that you consent to the jurisdiction of any United States federal district court in which Amazon.com and its affiliates may be found.
  5. Your physical or electronic signature.

Note: False statements in your written counter-notice may lead to civil or criminal penalties. The AWS Abuse team will not open attachments under any circumstance. You must provide any necessary information in plaintext.

Our agent will forward the information you provide to the person who filed the complaint.
