Take Down Notices – Copyright Infringement

Your podcast episode was taken down for copyright infringement.

This is a takedown notice. If your podcast episode includes copyrighted content (such as music or a recording of an event), please be sure that you have the license to re-distribute such material when you host a podcast with Blubrry.

In accordance with copyright laws you may only distribute content in your podcast that you create or that you have the necessary licenses for. To obtain a license you must contact the original copyright holder. Obtaining a license to distribute copyrighted material will prevent your podcast from violating copyright laws and receiving takedown notices.

How do I find music to use in my podcast that does not violate copyright laws?

There are many sources for music that is safe and royalty free for podcasts. Searching the web for “podsafe music” is the best place to start. The Blubrry Podcasting manual on music for your podcast goes into detail sources that will keep your podcast out of copyright troubles.

What is a Takedown Notice?

If a legitimist claim is made that violates copyright or contains illegal content, Blubrry Podcasting is required by law to remove and disable access to that content.

A takedown notice is a process for online hosts to respond to court orders, legal requests, or allegations when content violates a copyright or contains illegal content. In United States and European Union,  takedown notices are mandated as part of limited liability. As a condition for limited liability online hosts such as Blubrry Podcasting must expeditiously remove or disable access to content they host when they are notified of the alleged illegality.
