Copyright Infringement Email Phishing

Last Update: August 18, 2021

I can't believe I have infringed on so many copyrights.

I get this email at least 3 times a week on various websites.


Hello My Nam is _____


blah blah blah

<crazy looking link usually with google in it>

I do think you have intentionally infringed my legal rights under 17 U.S.C. Section 101 et seq. and could possibly be liable for statutory damage as high as $150,000 as set forth in Section 504 (c) (2) of the Digital millennium copyright act (DMCA) therein.



I continue to ignore it. I don't click on the link. I doubt you will ever be contacted bia email if the person can prove you have done something wrong.

Have you seen this type of email yet?
Do you have anything to add?

I've seen this a few times but not recently. Last time was perhaps 8 months ago.

Hi Bo … that’s OTT ...
Are they all from the same or a small number of addresses? If they are you can block them. If not I’d consider setting up a new email address.

Yes, everyone's getting them. It's scam of the day right now, along with a text message to your phone saying you have a new voice mail and a link to "retrieve" it.

That one's already hit Adelaide, Australia, Phil. They do get around.
