Please note that repeat offenders will not only have infringing content removed from the website, but their membership and access to the website will also be terminated. Please note that you will be liable for damages (including damages, costs, and attorneys' fees) if you materially misrepresent that the website or a web page is infringing your copyright. Accordingly, if you are not sure whether certain material of yours is protected by copyright laws, we suggest that you first contact an attorney.

Counter-Notification

If we receive a notice of infringement for work you have posted on our website, and you have a good faith belief that you have been wrongfully accused, you can file a Counter-Notification.

If we receive a notice of infringement against you, the website owner will attempt to notify you and provide you with a copy of the notice of copyright infringement. If you have a good faith belief that you have been wrongfully accused, you may file a counter-notification in accordance with section 512(g) of the DMCA with the website owner. If the website owner receives a valid counter-notification, the DMCA permits the website owner to restore content that has been removed and/or re-enable access.

To file a counter notification, you must provide a written communication that sets forth the items specified below.

  1. A physical or electronic signature of the subscriber.
  2. Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled.

  4. The subscriber's name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that the subscriber consents to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the address is located, or if the subscriber's address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which the service provider may be found, and that the subscriber will accept service of process from the person who provided notification under subsection (c)(1)(C) or an agent of such person.

After receipt of the counter-notification, the website owner will replace the removed material and cease disabling access to the website in 10 business days, unless the website owner first receives notice from the original complaining party (the “claimant”) that an action seeking a court order to restrain the alleged infringer from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on the website has been filed. If we receive such notification we will not display, distribute or otherwise use the alleged infringing material.

After we have received your counter-notification, we will forward it to the claimant. Please note by submitting a counter-notification, you consent to the release of the information provided on the counter-notification to be supplied to the claimant. We will not forward the counter-notification to any other party other than the original claimant.

Please be advised that United States copyright law provides substantial penalties for a false counter-notice filed in response to a notice of infringement. Accordingly, if you are not sure whether certain material of yours is protected by copyright laws, we suggest that you first contact an attorney.
