DMCA Designated Agent Directory: Searching the Directory (2017)


Welcome to the DMCA Designated Agent Directory. Here you can search for agents that have been
designated by service providers to receive notifications of claims of copyright infringement. The directory is searchable both by service
provider name and alternate names. Alternate names are other names provided by
a service provider that the public is likely to associate with the service provider, such
as website names and addresses, software application names, doing-business-as names, or other commonly
used names. To begin your search, type your search terms
into the search box and click the “Search” button. Search terms must be at least three characters
long. The search results page displays the service
provider name, alternate names, and current status for each result. You can sort the results by clicking on the
column headings. By default, search results only show active
designations. To view terminated designations, click on
the checkbox on the right side of the screen. Click the box again to hide terminated designations
from the search results. An explanation of the different statuses is
available on the bottom of this page. You can navigate through the search results
by using the “Previous” and “Next” buttons. Only the most recent version of a service
provider’s designation appears in the search results. To view a service provider’s most recent
designation, click on the service provider’s name. This page shows the service provider’s name
and address, and its designated agent’s name, organization, address, telephone number,
and email address. It also shows the status and effective dates
of the designation. As on the previous page, there is
an explanation of the different statuses on the bottom of the page. On the right, you can view a list of associated
alternate names. This list is searchable by typing in the search
box. To view previous versions of a service provider’s
designation, click on the drop down list at the top of the page and navigate to the earlier
version you would like to see. Click the “Back to Search” button to navigate
back to your search results.
