What to consider before submitting a copyright complaint

Before submitting a copyright complaint to us, consider whether the use could be considered fair use. Fair use
states that brief excerpts of copyrighted material may, under certain circumstances, be quoted verbatim for
purposes such as criticism, news reporting, teaching, and research, without the need for permission from or
payment to the copyright holder. If you have considered fair use and still wish to continue with a copyright
complaint, you may want to first reach out to the user in question to see if you can resolve the matter directly
with the user.

Please note that if you are unsure whether the material you are reporting is, in fact, infringing, you may wish to
contact an attorney before filing a notification with us.

We may, at our discretion or as required by law, share a copy of your notification or counter-notification with
third parties. This may include sharing the information with the account holder engaged in the allegedly
infringing activity or for publication.

Notifications of infringement

If you are a copyright owner or an agent thereof, and you believe that any material available on our Services
infringes your copyrights, then you may submit a written copyright infringement notification (“Notification”)
using the contact details below, pursuant to the DMCA. All such Notifications must comply with the DMCA

Filing a DMCA complaint is the start of a pre-defined legal process. Your complaint will be reviewed for accuracy,
validity, and completeness. If your complaint has satisfied these requirements, our response may include the
removal or restriction of access to allegedly infringing material.

If we remove or restrict access to materials or terminate an account in response to a Notification of alleged
infringement, we will make a good faith effort to contact the affected user with information concerning the
removal or restriction of access. This may include a full copy of your Notification (including your name,
address, phone, and email address) along with instructions for filing a counter-notification.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in any portion of this Policy, the Operator reserves the right
to take no action upon the receipt of a DMCA copyright infringement notification if it fails to comply with all
the requirements of the DMCA for such notifications.


A user who receives a copyright infringement Notification may make a counter-Notification pursuant to sections
512(g)(2) and (3) of the US Copyright Act. If you receive a copyright infringement Notification, it means that
the material described in the Notification has been removed from our Services or access to the material has
been restricted. Please take the time to read through the Notification, which includes information on the
Notification we received. To file a counter-notification with us, you must provide written communication
compliant with the DMCA requirements.

Please note that if you are not sure whether certain material infringes the copyrights of others or if the
material or activity was removed or restricted by mistake or misidentification, you may wish to contact an
attorney before filing a counter-notification.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in any portion of this Policy, the Operator reserves the right
to take no action upon receipt of a counter-notification. If we receive a counter-notification that complies
with the terms of 17 U.S.C. § 512(g), we may forward it to the person who filed the original Notification.

Changes and amendments

We reserve the right to modify this Policy or its terms related to the Website and Services at any time at our
discretion. When we do, we will send you an email to notify you. We may also provide notice to you in other ways
at our discretion, such as through the contact information you have provided.

An updated version of this Policy will be effective immediately upon the posting of the revised Policy, unless
otherwise specified. Your continued use of the Website and Services after the effective date of the revised
Policy (or such other act specified at that time) will constitute your consent to those changes.
