A legal notice to an online publisher from an author or other party providing detailed information about a copyright violation and a demand to remove or disable access (display) of the published material.
I sent a takedown notice to the Wikipedia but the sysops refused to delete the material so I had to sue.

You can submit a takedown notice if you ever want to withdraw permission for a publisher to use your material.

A takedown notice is legally binding.
