Copyright Takedown Policy
If you believe that your copyrighted materials have been improperly posted or used on our site in a manner which you believe constitutes copyright infringement, please provide us with notification containing all of the following information:
- Identify in sufficient detail the copyrighted work(s) (“Work”) that you believe has been infringed upon (i.e., describe the work that you own).
- Provide us with information reasonably sufficient to locate the Work, or describe where you saw it posted.
- Provide a reasonably sufficient method of contacting you. A phone number and email address would be preferred.
- Provide information that you have, if any, sufficient for us to notify the user(s) who posted the Content that allegedly contains the infringing Work. You may also provide screenshots or other materials that are helpful to identify the Work in question. This information is optional, but does help us to resolve issues addressed by your notification.
- Include the following statement: “I have good faith belief that the use of the copyrighted materials described above and contained on the service is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or by protection of law.”
- Include the following statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.” You must also sign the notification.
This notification must be emailed to our designated Copyright Agent at email@example.com.
When a valid DMCA notification is received, we will respond under this process by taking down the offending Content, if it has not already been deleted.
To File a Counter-Notification
If you believe that a complaint made against any Works posted by you is not the subject of a valid copyright Takedown Notice, and that such material was mistakenly removed, you can provide us with a notification containing all of the following information:
- List any items, whether copyrighted or not (“Item”) that were removed, and the location(s) the Item appeared before it was removed. Please identify the object in sufficient detail for us to determine its prior location.
- Provide your name, address, telephone number, email address (if available).
- State that you consent to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which you reside (or the Central District of California, if your address is outside of the United States).
- State that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification to us of the alleged infringement or an agent of such person.
- State the following: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief that the material identified above was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.” This notification must be emailed to our designated Copyright Agent at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will also provide counter-notifications to the person making the DMCA claim. Regardless of whether or not we reinstitute the Work in question, the person making the claim may elect to file a lawsuit against you for copyright infringement.
Please note that under Section 512(f) of the Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. § 512(f), any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that a Work is infringing, leading to its removal, may be subject to liability. For this reason, you should confirm the accuracy of all information you submit and comply with any requests that we may make for additional information.
