Counter-notification procedures

If you believe that material you posted on the Website or using the Services was removed or access to it was disabled by mistake or misidentification, you may file a counter-notification with us (a Counter-Notice) by submitting written notification to our Copyright Agent.

Š       A statement that you will consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located (or if you reside outside the United States for any judicial district in which the Website or Services may be found) and that you will accept service from the person (or an agent of that person) who provided the Website or Services with the complaint at issue.

 

 

The DMCA allows us to restore the removed content if the party filing the original DMCA Notice does not file a court action against you within ten business days of receiving the copy of your Counter-Notice.

 

Please be aware that if you knowingly materially misrepresent that material or activity on the Website or provided in connection with the Services was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification, you may be held liable for damages (including costs and attorneys' fees) under Section 512(f) of the DMCA.
