My site received a dmca notification due to an image a former employee posted for a product listing. Has anyone experienced being on this side of the DMCA? The email google sent contained only a link to a Counter Notification Form..but I admit the issue had gone unnoticed and have complied in removing it, I just want to know...
Do I have to remove the pages which contained the image(force them to 404 causing me to recreate the categories or tutorial page)?
Or Will deleting the image be good enough?
Does the counter notification form imply that I am fighting the claim?
Is the counter notification form the form I fill out to comply and prove that the infringement has been dealt with and removed?
After the process, will this be a mark on the domain that it has a history with infringing on copyrighted material?
Will google still refuse to index the pages in question?
After all is done what are the damages and how can I repair them?
