If you believe that a CCVN customer has copied your work in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, you may file a Notification of Claimed Infringement with CCVN designated DMCA agent. The DMCA provides the following procedure for parties to follow who wish to file a Notification of Claimed Infringement with CCVN.

- Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled.
