COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT CLAIMS

If you believe that materials hosted by THE WEBSITE infringe your copyright, you or your agent may submit a Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) notice by providing THE NETWORK with the following information in writing:

  • a physical or electronic signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive copyright that is allegedly infringed;

Any notification that fails to comply with requirements of the DMCA shall not be considered sufficient notice and shall not be deemed to confer upon THE NETWORK actual knowledge of facts or circumstances from which infringing material or acts are evident. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send to THE NETWORK a counter-notice. All NOTICES and counter NOTICES must meet the then current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA.

your physical or electronic signature;

  • identification of the USER CONTENT that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the USER CONTENT appeared before it was removed or disabled;

  • your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court in Los Angeles, California, and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.
