Q: Someone DMCA'd our content just to harass us.
Someone send a DMCA takedown request to the platform "Steam" where my content is hosted (a modification for a video game). All content used by us has been created by us.
We're being targeted by a malicious group threatening and harassing us with unjustified DMCA takedown request.
This is already the second time it happens.
They also use a false name and a false adress to send the takedown requests to the platform.
We'd be happy with any advice, thank you!
A: It is time to engage an attorney familiar with the DMCA procedures to assist you in the process so you can decide on the appropriate action to take.
