Why have I received an Account Termination Notice (DMCA)?

A Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) takedown notice is a notification sent by the copyright owner or representative reporting AdFly links that contain copyright-infringing material.

If you have received an AdFly Account Termination Notice (DMCA) it means that we have received 3 (three) valid DMCA complaints associated with your AdFly account.

You can view and request any DMCA notices associated with your account here:

The only way a DMCA strike can be removed from a user's account is by a 6 month expiration (providing no further notices have been received during this time) or by countering the DMCA notice with a valid counter-notice. For further details please see:
