Has anyone ever received permission?

This question has probably been asked many times before but so far my searches have proved fruitless.

Has anyone ever received permission to email Google with a DMCA Notice?

In this instance, it's my longstanding copyright work, including graphics on blogspot.

If so, who do you contact?

I don't believe there are any exceptions to snail-mailing it.

Unless a fax is snail-mail, it is definitely an exception.

Thanks to all!

Looks like I'll have to go through my junk box and dig out the old dial up modem and install fax software.

Thanks again.

About a year and a half ago I received permission to email DMCAs to Google. This happened after I sent a large number of them by FAX. I didn't ask, I just received an email telling me how to do it in the future.

I've been emailing them since although I haven't sent one in several months.

Certainly does make it a lot easier. Thanks again G!

I figured that would be the case. Faxing numerous notices internationally from Australia becomes quite expensive.

If only they had a decent contact form to at least ask.

Thanks

I was given a helpful link elsewhere.

Simply "Google":

"how to email a DMCA to google"

Hope it helps others.
