Digital Millennium Copyright Act Policy
Thank you for visiting (The Dogs Wiki). We respect the intellectual property rights of others, just as we expect them to respect our own. Copyright owners or their agents may submit take down notices by contacting our DMC Agent indicated below by Title 17, United States Code, Section 512(c). DMCA’s “safe harbor” provisions give internet service providers immunity from infringement claims. We need to receive notice from you that sets forth the following information to investigate a good faith infringement claim:
Infringement Notice – Claim
1. (A representative authorized by the owner of the copyright); the holder of all copyrights, or a holder of the copyrights authorized by him or her;
2. Description of allegedly infringed copyrighted works;
3. It should be possible for the service provider to locate the infringing material by identifying it and providing reasonable details about where it is located. [Notify us of the URL of the offending page so we can identify the alleged offending work];
4. Information necessary to permit the provider to contact the complaining party, such as the complainant’s name, address, email address, phone number, and fax number;
5. A statement that the complainant believes directly or indirectly that the copyright agent is unauthorizedly using this material;
6. The assertion that the data in the notification is accurate and the owner is authorized to act on behalf of the complaining party, under penalty of perjury.
If someone knowingly and materially misrepresents certain information in a notification of infringement, under the provisions of 17 USC *512(c)(3), they can be fined by Title 17 USC *512(f), including costs and attorney’s fees.
Please contact us for all takedowns. We will respond to emails.
If we receive a copyright infringement claim, we may share the alleged infringer’s identity and information with them. The alleged infringer will be informed of your identity and claim if you submit a claim.
Restoring Material – Counter-Notification
You may provide us with a counter-notification if you receive a notice that material has been taken down because of a copyright infringement claim. The material in question may then be restored to the site. Under 17 U.S.C.
Section 512(g)(3), the notification must be in writing to our DMCA Agent, and all of the following elements must be included:
- Whether you sign physically or electronically, your signature is important.
- Details about what has been taken down and where the material originally resided before it was removed.
- A statement under penalty of perjury that you believe the material was removed or disabled because it was misidentified.
- Name, address, and telephone number, as well as a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of any judicial district in which the service provider may be found (if you are outside the United States), and that you will accept personal service from the person or company who provided the original infringement notification.
Our Contact page is the place where you can send a counter-notice. The best way to contact someone is by email.
Policy on Repeat Infringers
Infringement of copyright is taken very seriously by us. We maintain a list of DMCA notices and make good faith efforts to identify repeat infringers by requirements of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. We will terminate the accounts of repeat infringers who violate our internal policy.
At any time, as well as its policy for handling DMCA claims, we reserve the right to modify these contents. It is recommended to check back frequently to see if any changes have been made to this policy.
