12. Claims of Copyright Infringement
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the Ã¢â‚¬Å“DMCAÃ¢â‚¬Â) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under United States copyright law.
If you believe, in good faith, that materials hosted on the Website infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send us a notice requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked.
(a) an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright;
(b) a description of the copyrighted work or other intellectual property that you claim has been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
(c) identification of the material that is 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 a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Website;
(d) your address, telephone number, and, if available, email address;
(e) a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
(f) a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright ownerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s behalf.
See http://www.loc.gov/copyright/ for current details.
If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, you may send us a counter-notice. We will not be liable to you under any circumstances for declining to replace material.
We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice, as there may be penalties for false claims under the DMCA.
