Counter Notification

Under the DMCA, a counter notification is a legal means to state your objection to a Notice or other DMCA warning that you’ve received from COMPANY regarding a report of allegedly infringing copyrighted material posted through your Account.

You may file a counter notification if you received a DMCA warning or Notice from COMPANY regarding a report of allegedly infringing copyrighted material on your COMPANY Account or have been otherwise advised by COMPANY that your Account was subject of a Notice and believe that your posting of material was a mistake or misidentification or that your use of the material in question constitutes “fair use” and that you have not infringed the copyright holder’s copyright. If you are unclear if your situation falls into one of these areas, you may want to speak with a legal advisor or attorney regarding your specific situation. Please note COMPANY cannot advise you on copyright-infringement-related matters.

After an effective counter notification is provided to COMPANY’S Designated Copyright Agent, we will forward a copy of it with all of your contact information (which is needed for legal process) advising the copyright holder that COMPANY intends to replace or re-enable access to the material in question with fourteen (14) business days following the date of the counter notification, unless COMPANY’S Designated Copyright Agent receives notice that the copyright holder has filed a court action (lawsuit, etc.) against you to restrain you from reposting the material.
COMPANY is committed to replacing or re-enabling access to the material in question but, in some circumstances, you may need to repost the material.

If we receive a counter notification from you and COMPANY does not receive notice that a court action has been filed as described above, we will no longer accept notices from the same copyright holder regarding the same material in question on the reported pages.

1. Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled, including the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;
