Copyright policy in the digital millennium
We respect the intellectual property rights of others, just as we expect others to respect our rights. Under Section 512(c) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (Title 17 of the United States Code), a copyright owner or its agent may send us a notice of copyright disclaimer through our DMCA agent listed below. As an Internet Service Provider, we are entitled to seek immunity from such infringement claims under the safe harbor provisions of the DMCA. To send us a fair dealing claim, you must provide us with a notice containing the following information:
Notice of Infringement Claim
1. a physical or electronic signature of the copyright owner (or a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner);
2. identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed.
3. identification of the copyright infringing material to be removed, and information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to locate the material [provide the URL of the relevant web page that will enable us to identify the allegedly infringing work] ;
4. information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact the complaining party, including a name, address, e-mail address, telephone and fax numbers;
5. a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that the copyright owner is making unauthorized use of the material; and
6. a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and that the complaining party has a good faith belief that the copyright owner is authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf under criminal sanctions.
17 U.S.C. § 512(f) provides civil penalties, including attorneys’ fees and costs, for a person who knowingly and materially misrepresents himself or herself in a notice of copyright infringement under 17 U.S.C. § 512(c)(3).
Submit all takedown notices through our contact page. Please send them by email so that we can process them quickly.
Please note that we may disclose the identity and information we obtain from a copyright infringement notification to the alleged infringer. By filing a complaint, you agree that your identity and your complaint may be disclosed to the alleged infringer.
Response Notice – Recycling of Material
If you have received a notice that material has been removed for copyright infringement, you may send us a counter-notification to have the material reinstated on the Site. This notice must be sent in writing to our DMCA agent and, in accordance with 17 USC 512(g)(3), must include the following:
1. your physical or electronic signature.
2. a description of the removed material and its original location prior to removal.
3. a statement that you believe in good faith that the material was removed or deleted due to an error or misidentification of the removed or deleted material.
4. your name, address, telephone number, and a statement that you consent to submit to the jurisdiction of the federal court for the county in which your address is located (or, if you live outside the United States, consent to submit to the jurisdiction of the county in which the service provider’s principal place of business is located) and that you will accept service of process from the person or entity that filed the original notice of infringement.
5. Submit a response through our contact page. It is recommended that you send an email.
We take copyright infringement very seriously. In compliance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act’s repeat infringer requirements, we maintain a list of DMCA notices filed with copyright holders and make a good faith effort to identify all repeat infringers. Violation of our internal repeat infringer policy will result in the termination of that person’s account.
We reserve the right to change the content of this Site and the DMCA Policy at any time and for any reason. We recommend that you check this policy periodically to see if any changes have been made.
