I requested Imgur to remove a copyrighted image on the Imgur website which was originally posted on Math Stack Exchange.

This request has been ignored for a long time now. This image has been removed from the Math Stack Exchange question but is still existing in the link https://i.stack.imgur.com/... . Even the Stack Exchange help (contact form) has been unanswered yet. How to have this image removed?

Imgur has its own removal request form, please ask for removal of the images there.

If that doesn't work, the person owning the copyright should have a lawyer file something like a DMCA takedown notice. There's nothing else you can do as a normal user.

  • Well, it seems you did everything you could. I suppose it's somebody else's picture, he/she should contact a lawyer to get it removed from imgur then.

    @hijam Stack Exchange doesn't own imgur. Asking here won't do anything. We can't delete the image. If they have ignored you, you need to keep asking them.

    @Catija: But SE does maintain the SE imgur account, and can and will delete images from it if necessary, per dupe and its dupe master. Commented Nov 28, 2016 at 20:03
  • Imgur requires a registered copyright on the image to remove it. I do not own a registered copyright of the image but as the creator of the image I hold the non-registered copyright isn't it?. As I uploaded the image I must have the right to remove it as well, or do I not?.
