Infringement Notices and Counter-Notices
If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, you may submit a notification by providing our Copyright Agent with the following information in writing:
- · 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 online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
- · 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 ActivePath to locate the material;
- · Information reasonably sufficient to permit ActivePath to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail;
- · A statement that you 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 that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
ActivePath’s designated Copyright Agent to receive notifications of claimed infringement may be contacted at: [firstname.lastname@example.org]. For clarity, only alleged infringement notices should go to the Copyright Agent; any other feedback, comments, requests for technical support, and other communications should be directed to ActivePath’s customer service through [email@example.com]. You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements of this section, your infringement notice may not be valid.
If you believe that your content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use your content, you may send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent:
- · Your physical or electronic signature;
- · Identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled;
- · A statement that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content; and
- · Your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.
If a counter-notice is received by the Copyright Agent, ActivePath may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member or user, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at ActivePath’s sole discretion.
