12. Copyright Complaints
[Note: The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) provides a set of provisions designed to protect website operators from liability from copyright claims arising out of conduct by their end users. For example, when users submit content (to an online service (such as your website) that does not belong to them, this could be an act of copyright infringement. DMCA offers a “safe harbor” to website operators if they implement a copyright policy in accordance with the DMCA – meaning the website operator will be provided immunity for claims of copyright infringement. We would recommend you implement the below copyright policy. You will need to identify and register your copyright agent with the Copyright Office. This individual will receive notification of any alleged copyright violation. Once this individual is selected, they will need to register with the U.S. Copyright Office. There is a $6 designation fee. Here is a reference guide issued by the Copyright Office for registration: https://www.copyright.gov/dmca-directory/transcripts/designate-an-agent.pdf]
If you believe that another user of the Website is unlawfully infringing copyrighted material(s), and wish to have the allegedly infringing material(s) removed, you must provide notice to our Copyright Agent at [contact]. Please ensure that your notice includes: (i) identification of the copyrighted work(s) claimed to have been infringed; (ii) identification of the supposedly infringing material that is to be removed; (iii) information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material on the Website; (iv) your address, telephone number, or email address; (v) a statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material is in fact infringing and/or not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; (vi) a statement that, under penalty of perjury, the information in the notification is accurate and where relevant
A provider of content subject to a claim of infringement may make a counter-notification. To file a counter-notification with us, please provide our Copyright Agent a notice containing the following: (i) identification of the supposedly infringing material that is to be removed; (ii) a statement that, under penalty of perjury, you have 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; (iii) your name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your postal address is located, and that you will accept service of process from the party who submitted the infringement notification or his, her, or its principal or agent; and (iv) the signature, physical or electronic, of you or a person authorized to act on your behalf.
We will promptly provide the party that provided the notice of claimed infringement with a copy of the counter-notification, and inform the complaining party that we restore the removed or disabled content within ten (10) business days. If we do not receive notice that a lawsuit has been filed within ten (10) business days after we provide notice of the counter-notification, we will restore the removed or disabled materials. Until that time, the materials will remain removed or disabled. Before filing a copyright notification with us, make a careful determination as to whether or not the use of the material at issue is or may be protected by the “fair use” doctrine. You could potentially be held liable for costs and attorneys’ fees should you file a takedown notice where there is no infringing use. If you are unsure whether there is infringement, it may be advisable to seek legal counsel.
