IX. Procedure for Making and Responding To Claims of Copyright Infringement
We will respond to claims of copyright infringement, and will promptly process and investigate notices of alleged infringement by third-parties and will take appropriate actions under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), Title 17, United States Code, Section 512(c)(2), where applicable. In keeping with the DMCA, notifications of claimed copyright infringement by third parties should be sent to our designated agent noted below (the “Designated Agent”). If you believe that your copyrighted work has been infringed under U.S. copyright law and is accessible on the Services, please notify us by contacting the Designated Agent.
In order to give effective notification of a claim of copyright infringement by a third-party under the DMCA, you must send a written communication to the Designated Agent that includes substantially the following: (1) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; (2) identification of the copyrighted work, or, if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works that are claimed to have been infringed; (3) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material on the Services; (4) information reasonably sufficient to permit the Company to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an e-mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted; (5) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that neither the copyright owner, nor its agent nor the law has authorized the use of the material in the manner complained of; and (6) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
The Designated Agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement can be reached at:
141 South Avenue, Suite #201
Fanwood, New Jersey 07023
If a valid notification of alleged copyright infringement is received, we will remove or disable access to the material identified in the notice as being infringing or as being the subject of infringing activity, and take reasonable steps to notify the alleged infringer that it has removed or disabled access to this material. Please note that under the DMCA, an alleged infringer has the right to submit a counter-notice to have the allegedly-infringing material re-published on the Services. Should that occur you will receive notification from us and, should you wish to have the material subsequently removed, you will be required to file a copyright infringement claim in a United States federal court. Additionally, a claimant who makes a misrepresentation concerning copyright infringement may be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees, incurred by the alleged infringer who is injured by such misrepresentation as a result of reliance upon such misrepresentation in removing or disabling access to the material or activity claimed to be infringing or in replacing the removed material or ceasing to disable access to it.
