Heather. iMDb does not remove data upon request. If there are errors on your page, you can post details and folks here might be able to help you get corrections made.


Sunshine. I am confused. You've spent the past two weeks trying to invalidate accurate data on your own page. You should be the last person sharing advice on accuracy. Maybe you should clean up your own page, then worry about others'.

In most states, you can be sued for using someone else's name, likeness, or other personal attributes without permission for an exploitative purpose (ie web traffic). Usually, people run into trouble in this area when they use someone's name or photograph in a commercial setting, such as in advertising or other promotional activities but use of the name of a high profile person for the purpose of driving traffic to a site to make money, is cause for legal action. 

If anyone wishes to cancel their IMDB pro membership with IMDB, they shouldn't be forced against their will to be listed.

For starters, they've been sued for refusing to remove data and were successful.

Secondly, the data on your page (I assume, since you've given no clues to which page you're talking about) is public information.

If you added a head shot, resume page and photos, to your page via IMDb Pro, those items will disappear on their own. Other than that, filmography, and other data that is public information will remain. Again, if there are errors, we can help fix that. But accurate sections of the database won't be removed upon request.

Good luck to you!

I am NO LONGER producing these projects so the information is inaccurate.  There is NO WAY TO delete them from my name because I'm not a member of IMDBPRO anymore and I am not renewing. IMDB should want to post ACCURATE information.

Heather: There's some ambiguity in your comment which I'd appreciate if you would clarify.

When you say you are no longer producing those projects, what do you mean? Were you a producer on them long enough to get an on-screen credit?

For example, someone could have been a producer of a TV series when it started, but quit after a few episodes, while someone else took over as producer. The original producer would still need to be listed on IMDb for the episodes that they did work on.

As LuvsToResearch mentions below, you don't need to be an IMDbPro subscriber to get your credits corrected. But the first thing we need to be certain of is whether your credits actually are wrong and need to be corrected.

Heather, correcting and/or deleting incorrect information has nothing to do with being a subscriber to IMDB Pro. If the information needs to be corrected all that is necessary is to submit the correction as well as evidence corroborating the change/deletion.

Heather: If for some reason you have been blocked from submitting data, someone else can submit the information on your behalf, as long as they know that what they are submitting is accurate.

Is this a released film, or is it still listed as in development? Only Pro Accounts are able to submit corrections to In Development projects.

Who has you blocked? IMDb? Can you point us to the project and/or credits you need to correct?

I just posted twice that inaccurate information can be corrected. Of course IMDb wants accurate data. It would be insane to think otherwise.

IMDbPro is not needed to add/correct data. It allows you to enhance your page with a head shot, up to 100 photos and attach a resume page. It offers no extra features with regard to adding or correcting data on yours, nor any page of the site. If you cancelled Pro but didn't delete your user account, should be able to submit requests to edit data on any page of the site.

If the works you're referring to do not exist or or not eligible (my first thought would be, why did you add them...) you will need to explain why as directed on this Help Area page. http://www.imdb.com/help/search?domai...

If they are removed based on not meeting eligibility rules, and you have no other work listed on your page, it'll eventually be removed as well as IMDb does not list names without any filmography listed, unless there is an active IMDbPro subscription attached.

the edit button is NOT on the page.  They have removed the edit button and it asks me me to renew my IMDB account in order to edit the film info.

Heather, can you point us to which films you are referring? We are all willing to assist but cannot do so with so little information.

Do you want the data removed?  Or do you just want to complain?

If you want help, post which of the 62,023,880 credits on the IMDb database do you want removed, and the people here will try to help.  No-one can help - including IMDb staff -- without the facts.

all of the credits attached to my name need to be removed as does my name.  I no longer support imdb or what it stands for, trying to destroy independent filmmakers so that amazon can promote huge budget films that it's selling.  this site is purely advertising for amazon's products and Jeff Bezos does not support indie filmmaking in America. His starmeter is geared to squeeze out the little guy and promote any film amazon has a big financial stake in.

Yet no indication of which pages you're talking about (none of our beeswax and all)...good plan!

Good luck with that!
