If you recently received an email notice of copyright infringement on your account, and believe that the material you posted on the website was removed or access to it was disabled by mistake or misidentification, you may file a counter-notification with us (a "Counter-Notice") by submitting written notification to our copyright agent. You can also reply to that email with the notice that is attached therein.
Pursuant to the DMCA, the Counter-Notice must include the following:
- An identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access disabled. (Supply the link to the content that was reported as removed)
- Information is required on which we can contact you (including your full legal name, postal mailing address, telephone number, and your email address).
- A statement under penalty of perjury by you that you have a good faith belief that the material identified above was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.
- A statement that you will consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located (or if you reside outside the United States for any judicial district in which the Website may be found) and that you will accept service from the person (or an agent of that person) who provided the Website with the complaint at issue.
- Your physical or electronic signature.
This notice can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please verify in the subject line that it is a Counter-Notice.
DMCA allows us to restore the removed content if the party filing the original DMCA Notice does not file a court action against you within ten business days of receiving the copy of your Counter-Notice.
