San Antonio, TX asked in Copyright for New York

Q: Do you think it is safe to file a Counter Notification against someone who filed a false DMCA Takedown on A Youtube Vid?

Someone filed a false DMCA Copyright Takedown against one of my videos and is asking for 1000$ to remove it. How should I approach this situation. I am sure they will blackmail me more if I were to give them my personal information such as: Physical Address, Name, And Phone Number, if I try to remove the strike with a Counter Notification.

A: You could have an attorney file the counter notice for you if you are concerned about distributing your contact information.
