Content policy

Disallowed contents

The following types of content are not allowed to be shared on pixeldrain. They will be removed when reported.

  • Copyright violation: Works which are shared without permission from the copyright holder. For copyright reports we need a formal DMCA takedown request originating from the copyright holder or a representative. If your request is not valid it will be ignored. Takedown requests which are sent to any other address than will also be ignored. See the chapter Copyright infringement below.
  • Porn: Pornographic material is not strictly banned on pixeldrain. But in order to comply with international regulations I have to prevent it from spreading too far. For this reason pornographic videos and images can be reported through the file reporting form. Once reported the file will be removed from public viewing.
  • Abuse of minors: Videos, images or audio fragments depicting abuse or inappropriate touching of minors will be removed and reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children when found.
  • Zoophilia: Videos, images or audio depicting abuse or inappropriate touching of animals.
  • Terrorism: Videos, images or audio fragments which promote and glorify acts of terrorism.
  • Gore: Graphic and shocking videos or images depicting severe harm to humans (or animals). I will clarify that I am not strictly against shocking content, and it is also not illegal in most places. When a shocking video goes viral it often ends up in the wrong places and it can cause mental issues for unsuspecting viewers. For that reason I will remove it when it gets reported.
  • Malware and computer viruses: Software designed to cause harm to computer systems.
  • Doxing: Posting private information about an individual or organisation. This includes publicly sharing private photos, videos or documents. Shaming and extortion are not accepted.
  • Revenge porn: The distribution of sexually explicit images or videos of individuals without their consent

Violating these rules will result in your IP address being banned from uploading to pixeldrain.

If you have found content which falls in any of these categories on pixeldrain please report it using the report button on the download page of the file. Do not send an e-mail, it will be ignored. When a file has received enough reports of the same type it will automatically be blocked. I will also manually review reported files occasionally.

Copyright infringement

If you have found content which infringes on your copyright you can send a formal DMCA take-down request to and I will review it. In your e-mail you need to swear under penalty of perjury that you (or your company) own exclusive rights to the claimed content. Please state the name of your organisation so the report can be properly categorised. Please put all relevant information in the e-mail body itself, no attachments! PDF files will not be reviewed.

The abuse mailbox relies on e-mail forwarding to work. The mail is first processed by the pixeldrain server and then forwarded to my mailbox. If your sending e-mail server has an SPF policy which restricts forwarding your message will not arrive in my inbox.

Abuse mails from repeated senders are automatically processed. This only works if you send the reports to Do not send abuse reports to support, sales or any other e-mail address, your report will be ignored or delayed.
