    Google has been notified, according to the terms of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), that some of the material found on your site allegedly infringes upon the copyrights of others. We’re in the process of removing the allegedly unlawful materials from Google Search results.

    The notice that we received, with any personally identifying information removed, may be found on the website of Chilling Effects, a third-party aggregator of legal complaint notices, at

    Please note that it may take several weeks for the notice to be posted on the above page.

    What you can do next:
    File a Counter Notice

    If you feel that your sites or pages were mistakenly removed due to a DMCA request filed against you, Google can reinstate these materials into our search results upon receipt of aDMCA Counter Notification.

    Just ignore the DMCA notices, optimize your site to have visitors coming back and keep putting more content on your site.

    Got a couple of these, the page will end up beeing removed from search, if it wasn't already.
    Change the url, and 301 the old one, update all internal links and update all the backlinks, if any, fetch as google and I usually have it ranking again in 48 hours.

    You don't need to change the url for just a few. I've gotten way more on one my sites than OP, and my site was still indexed, and I know sites that have gotten thousands and they are still indexed although without the infringing link. At the most you can just update your dmca'd links to something else like postname_001 to postname1_001 and redirect.

    Not sure if I get the point for your comment. If the page gets deindexed why should you work more on it to reoptimize?
    OP: just do a 301 and you are done, no need to worry, unless you get an envelope with 40 pages :)

    I agree with @IceHD, it's the most efficient way so you won't get deindexed. Just make sure to change it to where visitors can relate faster and readable. probably you should do quick :)

    I meant if the site is going to get DMCA notices, its best to optimize to keep people that come to the site keep coming back. If you change the domain name you will just get DMCA notices again in the future, changing an invidual post such as sitename.com/post_001 to sitename.com/post_001a and redirecting sitename.com/post_001 to sitename.com/post_001a(other search engines may not have indexed). Is alot easier than getting a whole new domain name.
