A content withdrawal request is a document by which a person can request the removal of unauthorized written content from a website or mobile application.

Usually, content removal requests are sent when the sender of the letter owns the copyright of the written content and the recipient of the letter has posted it online without the sender's permission. However, this is not always the case, as content removal requests may also be sent for other reasons.

This content removal request is distinct from a cease and desist letter regarding intellectual property. In this case, the sender requests that the unauthorized content be removed from a website or mobile application. If the sender is the copyright owner, he can take other measures, but the main purpose of this letter is simply to have the content removed.


How to use this document?

This document is quite short and simple, it requires only basic identifying information about the sender and recipient of the removal request, as well as the electronic link (URL) or name of the application where the unauthorized content is posted, and the reason for the content removal request.

It is possible that after receipt of this letter, the recipient may not immediately remove the content. If this occurs, the sender may need to consider taking further legal action if the content is copyrighted and infringed.

This request may be sent in the form of an e-mail or regular letter. If the sender wishes, they can attach a copy of the material (e.g. a photo of the web page) that they wish to have removed from the website or mobile application.


Applicable Law

There is no specific law regulating what should be included in a content removal request. However, it is a good idea to give the recipient of the request as much information as possible to help them quickly locate and retrieve unauthorized content. However, in the event of copyright infringement, the Copyright Act (R.S.C., 1985, c. C-42) applies.
