Digital Millennium Copyright Act Policy
Welcome to (the “Site”). We respect the intellectual property rights of others, just as we expect others to respect ours. Pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, Title 17 U.S.C. Section 512(c), the copyright owner or its agent may send us a takedown notice through our DMCA agent listed below. As an Internet service provider, we are entitled to claim immunity from such infringement claims under the “safe harbour” provisions of the DMCA. To submit a bona fide infringement claim to us, you must send us a notification that includes the following information:
Notice of Infringement – Claim
1. A physical or electronic signature of the copyright owner (or someone authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf);
2. Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed; 3. 3;
3. 3. Identification of the infringing material to be removed, and information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to locate the material. [Please submit the URL of the page in question to help us identify the allegedly infringing work;]
4. Information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact the complaining party, including name, physical address, e-mail address, telephone number and fax number;
5. A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that the use of the material is not authorised by the copyright agent; and
6. A statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorised to act on behalf of the copyright owner.
17 U.S.C. §512(f) provides for civil damages penalties, including costs and attorneys’ fees, against any person who knowingly and materially misrepresents certain information in a notice of infringement under 17 U.S.C. §512(c)(3).
Submit all takedown notices through our Contact Us page. Please submit by email for prompt attention.
Please note that we may share the identity and information of any copyright infringement claim we receive with the alleged infringer. By submitting a claim, you understand that you accept and agree that your identity and claim may be communicated to the alleged infringer.
Counter Notification – Restoration of Material
If you have received a takedown notice due to a claim of copyright infringement, you may provide us with a counter-notification in an effort to restore the material in question to the site. Such notice must be provided in writing to our DMCA agent and must contain substantially the following elements, in accordance with 17 U.S.C. Section 512(g)(3):
1. Your physical or electronic signature.
2. A description of the material that has been removed and the original location of the material before it was removed.
3. A statement, under penalty of perjury, that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.
4. Your name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal district court for the judicial district in which the address is located (or, if outside the United States, that you consent to the jurisdiction of any judicial district in which the service provider is located), and that you will accept service of process from the person or company that provided the original notification of infringement.
5. Submit your counter notification through our Contact Us page. Submission by email is strongly encouraged.
Repeat Offender Policy
We take copyright infringement very seriously. In accordance with the requirements of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act’s repeat infringer policy, we maintain a list of DMCA notices from copyright holders and make a good faith effort to identify any repeat infringers. The accounts of those who violate our internal repeat infringer policy will be terminated.
We reserve the right to modify the content of this page and its DMCA complaint handling policy at any time and for any reason. We encourage you to check this policy frequently for changes.
