If you prefer to send email instead of using the online form to request removal of copyright infringements, use the template below. Substitute everything in [brackets] with the necessary information. Send the complete email to copyright@scribd.com and we will remove the infringing content as soon as possible. This notification must include a direct link (URL) to each and every infringing document that you want us to remove. We cannot action nonspecific claims based on keywords, search queries, title, name, or resemblance (physical or otherwise) to another document.

This request only applies to infringing documents up to the date of its submission. It does not cover possible future infringements.
