Copyright-infringing materials found on the Site can be identified and removed pursuant to the process listed below, and you agree to comply with such process in the event you are involved in any claim of copyright infringement to which the DMCA may be applicable.
If you believe in good faith that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide the Company’s copyright agent the written information specified below. This procedure is exclusively for notifying Company that your copyrighted material has been infringed. Note that Company will not make any legal decisions about the validity of your claim of infringement or the possible defenses to a claim. When a clear and valid notice is received pursuant to the process listed below, Company will respond by either taking down the allegedly infringing content or blocking access to it. Company may contact the notice provider to request additional information. Under the DMCA, Company is required to take reasonable steps to notify the user who posted the allegedly infringing content (the “Poster”). The Poster is allowed under the law to send Company a counter-notification. Notices and counter-notices are legal notices distinct from regular Site activities or communications. Company may publish or share such notices with third parties in our sole discretion (in addition to producing them pursuant to a subpoena or other legal discovery request). Anyone making a false or fraudulent notice or counter-notice may be liable for damages under the DMCA, including costs and attorneys’ fees. Any person who is unsure of whether certain material infringes a copyright held by such person or a third party should contact an attorney.
In order to file a DMCA notice, the copyright owner must send in a written letter by fax, regular mail, or email only. Company reserves the right to ignore a notice that is not in compliance with the DMCA, and we may, but are not obligated to, respond to a non-compliant notice.
A DMCA notice must:
- Identify specifically the copyrighted work(s) believed to have been infringed (for example, “The text that appears at [list location on the Site] is my copyrighted work.”);
- Identify the Content that a copyright owner claims is infringing upon copyrighted work. The copyright owner must provide information reasonably sufficient to enable Company to locate the item on the Site. The copyright owner should provide clear screenshots of the allegedly infringing materials for identification purposes only. The information provided should be as detailed as possible;
- Provide information sufficient to permit Company to contact the copyright owner directly: name, street address, telephone number, and email (if available);
- If available, provide information sufficient to permit Company to notify the Poster (email address preferred);
- Include the following statement: “I have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law”;
- Include the following statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed”;
- Be signed; and
- Be sent to Company’s DMCA designated agent at the following address:
DMCA Designated Agent:
390 North Orange Avenue
Orlando, FL, USA
Telephone: (407) 839-4225
