The protection of intellectual property is of the highest concern to us, and we expect the same of our users and their authorized representatives. The language of the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) of 1998 may be read on the website of the U.S. Copyright Office. It is our objective to respond swiftly to unambiguous complaints of suspected copyright infringement that conform with the DMCA.
Considerations Prior to Filing a Copyright Complaint
Before submitting a copyright complaint to us, you should examine whether the usage qualifies as fair use. Fair use stipulates that limited passages of copyrighted work may, under certain conditions, be used verbatim for purposes such as criticism, news reporting, teaching, and research, without the copyright holder’s permission or payment.
Please note that if you are uncertain as to whether the content you are reporting actually infringes, you may desire to contact an attorney prior to submitting a notification to us.
The DMCA requires you to provide your personal information in the notice of copyright infringement. You may prefer to utilize an agent to report copyrighted content if you are worried about the privacy of your personal information.
Notifications of Violation
The filing of a DMCA complaint initiates a predetermined legal procedure. The correctness, validity, and completeness of your complaint will be evaluated. Our action might involve removing or restricting access to allegedly infringing content.
If we delete or restrict access to materials or terminate an account in response to a Notice of alleged infringement, we shall make a good faith attempt to notify the affected user of the removal or restriction.
The procedure outlined in this Policy does not restrict our ability to seek any other remedies we may have to resolve any infringement.
Variations and Alterations
We retain the right to amend this Policy or its provisions pertaining to the Website and Services at our sole discretion. When it occurs, we will update the date at the bottom of this page. We reserve the right to give you with notice in other ways, including using the contact information you have supplied.
Unless otherwise noted, an updated version of this Policy will become effective immediately upon posting the amended Policy. Your continued use of the Website and Services after the updated Policy’s effective date (or any other action indicated at that time) will signify your acceptance of these changes.
