DMCA Claims. You may notify us if your work has been copied in a way that you believe constitutes copyright infringement. In compliance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, Title 17, United States Code, Section 512(c)(2), we have designated a Copyright Agent to receive any such notification. Our Copyright Agent may be contacted at:

Your notice must contain the following information pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, Title 17, United States Code, Section 512(c)(3):
You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with the above requirements for the DMCA complaint, your DMCA complaint may be rendered invalid Digital Millennium Copyright Act, Title 17, United States Code, Section 512(c)(3)(B).
DMCA Counter-Notice.If you believe that your content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner's agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the material in your content, you may send a DMCA counter-notice containing the following information to our Copyright Agent:
If a counter-notice is received by the Copyright Agent, we may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the complaining party files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, or user, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at our sole discretion.
Please Note: If AppGraffiti finds it necessary to disable or remove more than three layouts from your account due to DMCA complaints or remove the same or similar layout from your account more than two times, AppGraffiti reserves the right to disable your account.
We may document notices of allegedly-infringing content upon which we act and may forward notices of alleged infringement to the party that submitted the allegedly-infringing content, in addition to a third-party which may publish and/or annotate it. We generally do not interfere with standard technical measures used by copyright owners to identify or protect copyrighted works which we, in our sole discretion, deem as reasonable.
