Our policy is to close the accounts of users, in appropriate circumstances, who have repeatedly been charged with copyright infringement. Sometimes a repeat infringement problem is limited to one user and we close just that user’s account. Other times, the problem pervades a whole subreddit community and we close the subreddit.
If you're a user who received notices from Reddit Legal that content you posted was removed for copyright reasons, your user account may be in danger of being closed for violations of our Repeat Infringement policy. For information on how to resolve your copyright issues and have your user content reinstated to Reddit, please review this help article.
If you're a moderator who received a formal warning from Reddit Legal about high amounts of copyright removals from your subreddit, your subreddit may be in danger of being closed for violations of our Repeat Infringement policy. For information on how to address the situation, please review the tips and guidelines we provided to you in our formal warning message.
