DisclaimerProcedures for Notification of Copyright Infringement
Under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act
Designated Agent to Receive Notices
Notice and Take-down Procedure
Written notification of allegedly infringing work must be sent to the agent at the above address. The notice must include ALL of the following:
A physical or digital signature of the owner of an exclusive copyright right (i.e., the copyright owner himself or the owner's exclusive licensee of the right(s) to reproduce, distribute, display, perform or create derivatives) or the owner's authorized agent;
A description of the works claimed to be infringed;
A description of the allegedly infringing works, sufficient to enable the agent to find them;
Sufficient information to enable the agent to contact the complainer;
A statement that the complainer believes in good faith that the use of the material is not authorized by the owner, the owner's agent or the law; and
A statement that the information in the notice is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that the complainer is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of one or more exclusive copyright rights.
[Individuals who wish to submit a notice are referred to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act Section 512 (c) (3) (A) (for notices alleging that content infringes) or Section 512 (d) (3) (for notices that allege that information location tools such as links contribute to infringement of a work).]
The agent will review the notification to be sure it substantially conforms to the statutory requirements. If the notice substantially conforms, the agent will take reasonable steps to notify the owner of the allegation of infringement and secure voluntary take-down of the work or disable access to the work.
If the notice fails substantially to conform, but the problems are with requirements 1, 5 or 6 above, the agent will contact the complainer and try to obtain the missing information. If the complainer provides substantially conforming information, the agent will notify the owner of the allegation of infringement and secure voluntary take-down of the work or disable access to the work.
If the notice is nonconforming with respect to requirements 2, 3 or 4, or if the complainer does not respond to the agent's request for additional information, the agent will ignore the notice. The agent will archive the notice along with a copy of any correspondence attempting to obtain additional information.
