Copyright, the DMCA and Takedowns
We respect the intellectual property of others and require that users of our Services do the same.
If you believe that anything on our services infringes a copyright that you own or control, you may first notify the user who posted/uploaded the alleged infringing materials and they can retract their email/posting.
If the problem cannot be resolved, we have adopted the following general policy toward copyright infringement in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (http://www.copyright.gov/legislation/dmca.pdf), that includes the removal of any infringing materials from the Services and for the termination, in appropriate circumstances, of users of our Services who are repeat infringers. If you believe that anything on our services infringes a copyright that you own or control, you may notify our designated agent by contacting:
Attn: Legal Department/Young Park
5900 WILSHIRE BLVD SUITE 2110
LOS ANGELES, CA 90036
Procedure for Reporting Copyright Infringement:
If you believe that material or content residing on or accessible through our Services infringes a copyright, please send a notice of copyright infringement containing the following information to the Designated Agent listed above:
A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright that has been allegedly infringed;
Identification of works or materials being infringed;
Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing including information regarding the location of the infringing materials that the copyright owner seeks to have removed, with sufficient detail so that we are capable of finding and verifying its existence;
Contact information about the notifier including address, telephone number and, if available, e-mail address;
A statement that the notifier has a good faith belief that the material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
A statement made under penalty of perjury that the information provided is accurate and the notifying party is authorized to make the complaint on behalf of the copyright owner.
Once Proper Bona Fide Infringement Notification is Received by the Designated Agent:
It is our policy:
To remove or disable access to the infringing material;
To notify the content provider, member or user that it has removed or disabled access to the material; and
That repeat offenders will have the infringing material removed from the system and that we will terminate such content provider's, member's or user's access to the service.
Procedure to Supply a Counter-Notice to the Designated Agent:
If the content provider, member or user believes that the material that was removed or to which access was disabled is either not infringing, or the content provider, member or user believes that it has the right to post and use such material from the copyright owner, the copyright owner's agent, or pursuant to the law, the content provider, member or user must send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Designated Agent listed below:
If a counter-notice is received by the Designated Agent, we may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed material 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 material may be replaced or access to it restored in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at our discretion.
When submitting your notification of claimed copyright infringement, please ensure the following criteria have been met:
Your notice concerns copyrighted material that is hosted on a domain operated by freenode, i.e., https://freenode.net/. We are unable to remove or disable access to copyrighted material located on other domains, such as those operated by third-parties who archive and re-host content originally posted to our website or services.
Clearly note the specific location(s) - e.g. https://freenode.net/ URL(s) - of the copyrighted material referenced in your notice.
You understand that as permitted by law, we may forward a complete copy of your notice (including your name, contact information, et cetera) to the user(s) who submitted the copyrighted material referenced in your notice.
You understand that you may be liable for damages (including our costs and attorneys' fees) if you make material misrepresentations in your notice or counter-notice, including your identifying information and if you misrepresent that the material is infringing your copyright. We reserve the right to seek and collect these damages.Put your canary hereLast update: 2021-11-23 19:07:32
