We will review the Takedown Notice and take appropriate action, if any action is required. 

Once Proper Infringement Notification is Received by the Designated Agent: Upon receipt of a proper notice of copyright infringement by our Designated Agent, we reserve the right to:

  • Remove or disable access to the infringing material;
  • Notify the content provider that we have removed or disabled access to the material; and
  • Terminate such content provider’s access to the Website if he or she is a repeat offender.

Procedure to Supply a Counter-Notice to the Designated Agent: If the content provider believes that the material that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or the content provider 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 has the right to send a counter-notice containing the following information to our Designated Agent:

  • A physical or electronic signature of the content provider;
  • Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled;
  • A statement that the content provider has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material; and
  • Content provider’s name, address, telephone number, and, if available, email address, and a statement that such person or entity consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal Court for the judicial district in which the content provider’s address is located, or, if the content provider’s address is located outside the United States, for any judicial district in which the Law Firm is located, and that such person or entity will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.

If a counter-notice is received by our Designated Agent, the Law Firm may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that the Law Firm 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 accused of committing infringement, 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 the Law Firm’s discretion.
