XVII. Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) Notices

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), 17 U.S.C. § 512, requires that we respect the intellectual property rights of others. If you believe that any material available on or through our Website infringes upon any copyright you own or control, please immediately send a notice (“Notification”) to our Designated Copyright Agent using the contact information provided below.

A copy of your Notification will be sent to the person who posted or stored the material addressed in the Notification. Pursuant to federal law, you may be held liable for damages if you make material misrepresentations in a Notification. Thus, if you are not sure that material located on or linked to by our Website infringes your copyright, you should consider first contacting an attorney.

All Notifications should meet the requirements of the DMCA, 17 U.S.C. § 512(c)(3), by including substantially the following:

  • A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
  • Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have 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.
  • 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 information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to locate the material.
  • Information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted.
  • A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of 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 right that is allegedly infringed.

If you believe your own copyrighted material has been removed from our Website as a result of a mistake or misidentification, you may submit a written counter notification (“Counter Notification”) to our Designated Copyright Agent using the contact information provided below.

To be an effective under the DMCA, 17 U.S.C. § 512(g)(3), your Counter Notification must include substantially the following:

  • A physical or electronic signature of the subscriber.
  • 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.
  • A statement under penalty of perjury that the subscriber has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.
  • 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 17 U.S.C. § 512(c)(1)(C) or an agent of such person.

If you send us a valid, written Counter Notification meeting the requirements described above, we will restore your removed or disabled material, unless we first receive notice from the party filing the Notification informing us that such party has filed a court action to restrain you from engaging in infringing activity related to the material in question.

If you materially misrepresent that the disabled or removed Content was removed by mistake or misidentification, you may be liable for damages, including costs and attorney’s fees. Filing a false Counter Notification also constitutes perjury.
