Take-Down Notification to Alleged Infringer and Counter-Notices

If you are submitting a Counter-Notice, it must substantially include the following:
- Your physical or electronic signature.

- Adequate information by which we can contact you (including your name, postal address, telephone number and, if available, e-mail address).
- A statement, under penalty of perjury, that you have a good faith belief that the material identified above was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.
- A statement that you will consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located (or if you reside outside the United States for any judicial district in which the Website may be found) and that you will accept service of process from the person (or an agent of that person) who provided the Website with the complaint at issue.
All Counter-Notices should be sent to our Copyright Agent. Please submit only legitimate Counter-Notices. Knowingly submitting a false Counter-Notice may result in your being held liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) under Section 512(f) of the DMCA.
Upon receipt of a Counter-Notice, we will promptly provide the sender of the DMCA Notice with a copy of your Counter-Notice. Then, we will replace the removed material or cease disabling access to it not less than 10, nor more than 14, business days following receipt of the Counter-Notice, unless our Copyright Agent first receives notice from the sender of the DMCA Notice that such person has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain the person engaged in the allegedly infringing activity from doing so on our Website.
