Question

  02/16/18, 11:11 pm
If someone contacts me asking for permission to share my original work on their website or Facebook page, am I within my legal rights to grant permission with specific conditions? For example, "You may post on Facebook if you include a tag link to my profile in the post caption." In the case of the example above, if they posted it without my profile in the caption (but perhaps in the comments somewhere), could I file a DCMA against them?

Yes, you can grant permission with specific conditions. You could ask the infringing party to comply correctly or can send your DMCA notice to Facebook.
