Under a provision of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA),websites are required to remove infringing content upon receiving a takedown notice from the copyright owner. When the Wikimedia Foundation receives such a notice, we take quick action to  investigate. If the claim turns out to be valid, we will remove the content. In July 2020, a photographer in the United Kingdom contacted the Foundation with a DMCA takedown request of a photo of a museum. They provided a link to the original image, a link to the allegedly infringing image on Wikimedia Commons, and additional background information. We investigated and found the claim to be accurate, so we removed the image from Commons.
