In a nutshell, section 512 of the DMCA lays out the legal procedure for a copyright holder to formally ask a service provider like Us, to take down allegedly infringing content by submitting a DMCA copyright notice. It also explains how the person who posted, uploaded, or submitted the content at issue can oppose a notice of alleged infringement by submitting a DMCA counter notice.
(!) Before you submit a DMCA copyright notice, please make sure you’re the actual copyright holder or that you’ve been authorized to act on a right holder’s behalf.
To submit a notice of claimed copyright infringement, you will need to send a written communication that includes substantially all of the information listed below:
Such written DMCA copyright notice should be sent to the Designated Copyright Agent contact as listed below.
We can decide to remove or restrict access to any infringing content. If We decide to remove or restrict access to content in response to a DMCA copyright notice, We’ll make efforts to contact the person who has posted, uploaded, or submitted the content at issue.
If you believe your content was removed or to which access was restricted as a result of mistake or misidentification, you may submit a DMCA counter notice that includes substantially all of the information listed below:
Such written DMCA counter notice should be sent to the Designated Copyright Agent contact as listed below.
We may forward the information provided in the counter notice to the person who submitted the DMCA copyright notice. If We do not receive notice within 10 business days that the original person is seeking a court order to prevent further infringement of the material at issue, We may replace or cease disabling access to the material that was removed.
It’s our policy to process termination of users who uploaded content to our Services and for whom We have received more than three copyright notices that are compliant with applicable law with respect to such content. Additionally, we reserve the right to terminate accounts of users who infringe on a single occasion if the circumstances warrant. This process does not limit Our ability to pursue any other remedies We may have to address suspected infringement.
