22. Claims of Copyright Infringement.
In the United States, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA") provides recourse for copyright
owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. Other
protections for copyright owners are available in other jurisdictions. If you believe in good faith that materials available
on the Site infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send us a notice requesting that we remove the material
or disable access to it. If you believe in good faith that someone has wrongly filed a notice of copyright infringement
against you, please send us a counter-notice. In the United States, notices and counter-notices must meet the thencurrent statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA (see http://www.copyright.gov for details).
Upon receipt of notification the 'Notice and Takedown' procedure invoked is as follows:
- a) we will acknowledge receipt of your complaint and will make an initial assessment of the validity and plausibility
of the complaint;
- b) upon receipt of a valid complaint the material will be temporarily removed from the Site pending an agreed
- c) we will contact the contributor who deposited the material, if relevant, and the contributor will be notified that the
material is subject to a complaint, under what allegations, and will be encouraged to assuage the complaints
- d) the complainant and the contributor will be encouraged to resolve the issue swiftly and amicably and to the
satisfaction of both parties, and the material is replaced on the Site unchanged or with changes, or is permanently removed. If the contributor and the complainant are unable to agree a solution, the material will
remain unavailable through the Site until a time when a resolution has been reached.
Notices and counter-notices should be sent to the address referred to in paragraph 21.
You should consider consulting your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice.
