The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) is a U.S. Copyright Law. It protects creators, internet service providers and web platforms.
Without DMCA, ISPs and web platforms would be liable for copyright infringement by their users. For example, if a user on Facebook committed copyright infringement, Facebook would be liable if DMCA didn't exist.
If a user on a platform infringes on a copyright, you can send a DMCA take-down notice to the platform or ISP. They have to respond and deal with the DMCA take-down notice, otherwise they may forfeit their right to DMCA protection.
Binded will soon provide ways for you to send DMCA take-down notices as part of our Monitoring feature.
