We hold others’ intellectual property rights in high regard, mirroring the respect we anticipate for our own. In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), Title 17 of the United States Code, Section 512(c), we are permitted to receive takedown notices through our designated DMCA Agent.
As an online service provider, we can employ the “safe harbor” provisions of the DMCA to form a defense against alleged infringement. To make an infringement claim in good faith, please furnish the following information in your notice:
