Course Hero is a community of students and educators who share resources to support student learning, and copyright infringers are not welcome. We terminate the accounts of those who repeatedly violate our policies.
If someone has posted your copyright-protected work without your permission, please use this quick and simple form to submit a DMCA-compliant takedown request. Takedown requests are legal processes and require certain information to be actionable in accordance with copyright law and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). Note that incomplete forms will be returned for resubmission.
The DMCA is a United States law governing online copyright protections, which provides a legal process for removing content from any online service provider. The DMCA protects owners of intellectual property as well as internet and online service providers (ISPs and OSPs), and provides a simple process for copyright owners to have their copyrighted content removed from websites.
Your intellectual property is extremely valuable and deserves to be protected. We are committed to removing inappropriate content from Course Hero as quickly as we can. Course Hero takes copyright protection seriously—we have established a thorough and careful removal process for any infringing content that has been discovered on our site and reported through our Copyright Infringement Notification form.
Like other online service providers operating in the United States, Course Hero complies with the DMCA. Accordingly, we have implemented a “Notice and Takedown” procedure that adheres to DMCA guidelines (these guidelines are designed to provide a clear and fair process to protect copyright holders). This Copyright Infringement Notification form is part of our DMCA-compliant “Notice and Takedown” procedure for removing infringing content.
To file a DMCA takedown request, please complete the Copyright Infringement Notification form below.
You will need to identify the infringing work(s) by providing the specific identification and location of the infringing work(s), including its URL or URLs on Course Hero. Each URL should be in the following format: https://www.coursehero.com/file/xxxx/...
Once you submit a complete takedown request using our Copyright Infringement Notification form, our DMCA Compliance Team will quickly take action to remove the infringing content. You will be notified once the content has been removed.
We are dedicated to helping copyright holders protect their work. As an an alternative to completing this form, you can email or fax your DMCA notification to [email protected]. If you have any questions or need assistance in completing your takedown request, please contact us at [email protected].
