If The WHAT terminates your access to this Site or the Services found at this Site, The WHAT may, in its sole and absolute discretion, remove and destroy any data and files stored by you on its servers.
The WHAT has adopted the following general policy toward copyright infringement in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”). It is The WHAT’s policy to (a) block access to or remove material that it believes in good faith to be copyrighted material that has been illegally copied and distributed by any of our advertisers, affiliates, content providers or Users; and (b) remove and discontinue service to repeat offenders.
Written Notification. If you believe that your content has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please notify our Copyright Agent by emailing us at [firstname.lastname@example.org]. The WHAT will respond to notices of alleged infringement regarding third party material sent pursuant to and in accordance with the DMCA, which may include The WHAT removing or disabling access to Third Party material claimed to be the subject of infringement or other activity. All notices sent to The WHAT regarding matters other than informing The WHAT that a party’s copyrighted material may have been infringed as a result of third party materials will not receive a response through this process. In order to be effective, your infringement notification must include the following:
– A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;- Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or if multiple copyrighted works at a single web site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that web site;- Identification of the material (i.e., the third party materials) 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 The WHAT to locate the material;- Information reasonably sufficient to permit The WHAT to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted;- A statement, as follows: “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”; and- A statement, as follows: “The information in this notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, I swear that I am the copyright owner or that I am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.”
Counter Notification. If you believe that your work has been removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification, please notify our Copyright Agent by emailing us at email@example.com. To be effective, a Counter Notification must be a written communication that includes substantially the following:
A physical or electronic signature of the User;- 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 to it was disabled;- A statement, as follows: “I swear under penalty of perjury that it is my good faith belief that the material identified above was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled”; and- The User’s name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that the User consents to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the User’s address is located, or if the User’s address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which The WHAT may be found, and that the User will accept service of process from the person who provided notification or an agent of such person.
Upon receipt of a valid Counter Notification containing the information as outlined above, the DMCA provides that the removed material will be restored or access re-enabled and The WHAT will comply with this requirement within a reasonable time (or as otherwise required by law), provided The WHAT’s Copyright Agent has not received notice from the original complaining party that an action has been filed seeking a court order to restrain User from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on The WHAT’s network or system.
