The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe that material on a website hosted by Avetta, LLC and/or its subsidiaries infringes your copyright, you (or your authorized representative) may send us a written notice as described below. Notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA: see http://www.copyright.gov/dmca/ for details. After we receive a proper written notice we will expeditiously remove or disable the allegedly infringing material and will attempt to notify the user who posted the allegedly infringing material. That user then has the right to request that the material be re-enabled. If they properly make such a request, we will re-enable the material unless and until the two parties jointly ask us to remove it or a court orders us to remove it.
Notices must include the following information: (a) your name, mailing address, telephone number and email address; (b) sufficient detail about the copyrighted work; (c) the URL or other specific location on our website(s) that contains the material that you claim infringes your copyright; (d) a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law (i.e. “I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials described above as allegedly infringing is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law”); (e) a statement by you that the information contained in your notice is accurate and that you attest under the penalty of perjury that you are the copyright owner or that you are authorized to act on the copyright owner's behalf (i.e. “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”); and (f) an electronic or physical signature of the owner of the copyright or a person authorized to act on the owner's behalf.
Notices should be sent to our copyright agent at:
Please note that you may be liable for damages, including court costs and attorneys’ fees, if you materially misrepresent that content on a website is copyright infringing. When in doubt, you should consult an attorney. In any event, if you believe your copyrights are being infringed, we strongly urge you to contact the user directly.
