Digital Millenium Copyright Act

Last Updated on September 14, 2014

It is our policy to respond to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement. This page describes the information and procedure that should be present in these notices.

The form of notice specified below is consistent with the information suggested by the United States Digital Millennium Copyright Act. You may find the Act itself at the US Copyright Office Website.

Our response to notices may include removing or disabling access to material claimed to be the subject of infringing activity and/or terminating subscribers. If we remove or disable material or websites in response to such notices, we will make a good faith attempt to contact the owner or administrator of the affected content or website so that they can make a counter notification.

We may document the notices of alleged infringement on which we act. After we receive your infringement notification and/or counter-notification, we will forward it to the other party. Please note that when we forward the infringement notification or counter-notification, it includes your personal information. By submitting an infringement notification or counter-notification, you consent to having your information revealed in this way. We will not forward the the information to any party other than the original parties involved.

After we send out the counter-notification, the initial claimant must then notify us within 10 business days that he or she has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain the alleged infringer from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on the alleged website. If we receive such notification we will be unable to restore the material. If we do not receive such notification, we may reinstate the material.

Users who are found to repeatedly infringe copyrighted material will be removed from our Services and their accounts terminated.
