DIGITAL MILLENIUM COPYRIGHT ACT (DMCA) POLICY

DMCA Notice.  If you believe in good faith that your writing has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement on our website, you should provide us with the information required to constitute a notification of claimed infringement under the DMCA (17 U.S.C. § 512).

In order to more easily accommodate this process we have provided a form for your use. We will only be able to take action if you provide us with the required information so please fill out all fields accurately and completely. Your written notice must include the following:

  • A physical or electronic signature of the copyright owner or person authorized to act on behalf of the owner which expressly claims an exclusive right that is allegedly being infringed.
  • Specific identification of the copyrighted work which you are alleging to have been infringed. If you are alleging infringement of multiple copyrighted works with a single notification you must submit a representative list which specifically identifies each of the works that you allege are being infringed.
  • Specific identification of the location and description of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity with enough detailed information to permit Default Template to locate the material. You should include the specific URL or URLs of the web pages where the allegedly infringing material is located.
  • Information reasonably sufficient to allow Default Template to contact the complaining party which may include a name, address, telephone number and electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted.
  • A statement that the complaining party has 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.
  • A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

Please also note that under applicable law, 17 U.S.C. 512(f), any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability.
