How To Use DMCA Badge Protection?
How does it feel to find someone copying your blog content without permission? It feels terrible. I’ve faced this situation several times. Whenever I see that content thieves rank higher in Google, I report to Google to remove the copied content.
If you aren’t aware of DMCA, here is some information. DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) is a United States copyright law that controls copyrighted works. DMCA aims to protect the right of intellectual property online.

How to Add Protection Badge to WordPress Blog
It’s straightforward to add a DMCA badge to protect your site or blog. It won’t take more than five minutes for you.
If you want to create a free account, click on ‘Submit.’ I suggest you start with a free account. Later you can upgrade to Pro if needed.
Once you’ve logged into your account, you will find Protection Badge. Though a WordPress Plugin lets you install protection badges on your site, I won’t suggest installing a plugin to add a badge where you can do it by adding a widget.
Now you need to select a badge and copy the code. Add a text widget to your blog sidebar/footer and paste the code. (Quick Guide: Login to WordPress > Appearance > Widgets > Arbitrary text or HTML > Paste the Code > Add it to Sidebar/footer).
That’s it. You have it. A protection bot will crawl your site soon, and your content will be protected under the act. DMCA badge cannot stop someone from copying content from your blog. But this badge will discourage content thieves from copying your content. If you find someone has copied your content, just ask your system to take action.
Finally, I hope this badge will help you to protect your content from stealers. If you find this post helpful, help me by sharing this post on Facebook and Twitter.
