Greater transparency under new Twitter copyright takedown policy

Under a revision to its copyright notice and takedown policy, when Twitter takes down an alleged infringing tweet it will now automatically post a tweet in the user’s feed stating the material has been withheld in response to a report from a copyright holder.

And, as it already does with other requests to block or remove Tweets, Twitter will send these reports to the Chilling Effects website.

Twitter will respond to reports of alleged copyright infringement, such as allegations concerning the unauthorized use of a copyrighted image as an profile photo, header photo, or background, or to Tweets containing links to allegedly infringing materials.

Information about the process is set out in Twitter’s Copyright and DMCA Policy.
