We prohibit the posting of any information or distribution of any material through our service that violates or infringes the copyright rights of any person or entity. As required by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), if you believe that your work has been copied and is accessible on our website in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, you must provide our Designated Agent for receiving claims of copyright infringement with a written notification. To be effective, the notification must contain the following information:
- An electronic or physical signature of the copyright owner or someone authorized on the owner’s behalf to assert infringement of copyright and to submit the notification.
- Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works.
- Identification of material claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material.
- Information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact the complaining party, such as the party’s name, address and daytime telephone number, and an e-mail address, if available.
- A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that the use of the infringing copyrighted work is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.
- A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive copyright right that is allegedly infringed.
Notification of a claim of copyright infringement should be submitted to our DMCA agent at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. This email address is only for notifications of claimed copyright infringement. We will not respond to emails sent to this email address regarding other matters.
We will remove or disable access to any posted submission for which we have received a notice of claimed copyright infringement consistent with Section 512(c) of the DMCA and will also disable the account of anyone who repeatedly uploads or distributes infringing material through our service
Repeat Infringer Policy. Specifically, if we receive three copyright infringement notifications within a six-month time period, we will terminate the accounts of users and subscribers (“Users”). A person does not have to be found guilty of copyright infringement in a court to be deemed a repeat infringer. Rather, a decision to terminate a User’s account will be made at our sole discretion based on the frequency and number of complaints relating to the User’s account that we receive.
Each User agrees that if his or her account is terminated pursuant to this DMCA Copyright Infringement Policy, the User will not attempt to establish a new account or membership under any name, real or assumed, and the User further agrees that by opening a new account or subscription after being terminated pursuant to this Policy, he/she will have violated our End User Agreement and shall indemnify and hold us harmless for any and all liability that we may incur. To the extent that this Policy is inconsistent with the End User Agreement, this Policy will control.
You may request that we restore the posting or cease blocking access to the material or your account by sending us a written communication via postal mail, email, or facsimile to the designated agent referred to above. This counter-notice must include substantially the following information:
- Your physical or electronic signature;
- Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location on our Website or Service at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled.
- The statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.”
- Your full name, postal address, telephone number and email address (if applicable), and the statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the district in which the address is located, or if your address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which Intelliwave may be found, and that you will accept service of process from the person or entity who provided notification of copyright infringement under 17 U.S.C. 512(c)(1)(C) or an agent of such person or entity.
When we receive a counter-notice that complies with these requirements, we will forward it to the person who submitted the original claim of copyright infringement. Please note that when we forward the counter-notice, it includes your Personal Information. By submitting a counter-notification, you consent to having your Personal Information revealed to third parties.
