I attached the DMCA notice, which I am reporting because our add-on was uploaded by another user without our permission. Please let me know if you need more information. Also keep me posted about the status of the procedure.

Best regards,

Digital Millennium Copyright Act Notice

We tried to upload the add‐on of our website to AMO and realized that somebody
already uploaded an Ecosia add‐on without our permission. Therefore we are not able to release the
Ecosia add‐on at AMO. Our own hosted version of the add‐on already has about 50,000 active users;
therefore we don’t want to release a second version of the add‐on. We consider the upload of our
add‐on by a third party as an infringement of our copyrights.

You can find our current version of the add‐on at This is the error
message we saw:

“Oops! There seems to be a problem with this file...
This add‐on ID ({d04b0b40‐3dab‐4f0b‐97a6‐04ec3eddbfb0}) already exists in the database. If
this is your add‐on, you can upload a new version.
Please correct this problem and upload your file again.”

I would ask you to please remove the add‐on
from your website and get back to me as soon as possible.

(1) I believe in good faith that the use of the material that I claim infringes my copyright is not
authorized by law, or by the copyright owner or such owner's agent;
(2) All of the information contained in my DMCA Notice is accurate, and under penalty of
perjury, that I am the owner of the exclusive copyright right that is being infringed.
