How long does a DMCA normally take to take effect ?

This is my first attempt at submitting a DMCA, I submitted 2 about 48 hrs ago and still haven't seen anything happen.

What are your experiences with it, and does it always work or do you sometimes have to submit it again after a certain amount of time?

Thanks!

    In general, that's the period (48 hs) and in some cases you have to re-submit it.

    Make sure that your DMCA notification has all the info that the site requires.

    If the material you reported isn't removed within a week, your chances of it happening significantly decreases. Was the company you sent the dmca to located in the US?

    Some sites require that you include something like this...

    I state that the information hereby is 100% correct, in compliance with every statement
    of the US Copyright Law 17 U.S.C. 512(c)(3)5 including steps 5 and 6:

    - The use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner,
    its agents, or the law.

    - The information described here is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, the complaining party
    is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.


    Make sure to have it.

    Best of Luck and be prepared: Once illegal sharing starts, it rarely stops.

    Just find a way to automate a process so you spend no more than 1 hour per week on that.

    I would assume it would take a lot longer than 48 hours. They get a lot of requests

    It will be a maximum of 48 hours. But I think it really depends, sometimes it may take longer. What really matters is that they have finally take down that copyrighted content that was illegally shared.
