Millennium Copyright Act (”DMCA”), and I seek the removal of the
aforementioned infringing material from your servers. I request that you
immediately notify the infringer of this notice and inform them of
their duty to remove the infringing material immediately, and notify
them to cease any further posting of infringing material to your server

copyright infringement. If service providers do not investigate and
remove or disable the infringing material this immunity is lost.

due speed should the direct infringer, your client, not comply
