Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA")
Uploading copyrighted material such as copyrighted photographs, art, text, and screenshots in violation of applicable copyright law violates this Agreement. We do not monitor the content for this type of activity. However, complaints submitted to us by copyright holders or their agents in compliance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) are taken seriously and may result in removal of content deemed to be violating at our sole discretion, a user’s termination of use of the Services, plus fines or other legal action brought by copyright holders and their agents.
Notification and Procedure for Making Claims of Copyright Infringement. 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:
Designated Agent for DCMA Notices:
c/o Kris R. Keeney, Esq.
4510 Cox Road, Suite 109
Glen Allen, Virginia 23060
If you wish to notify our Copyright Agent of a claim of copyright infringement, please provide written notice. Your notice must contain the following information:
You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with the above requirements for the DMCA complaint, your DMCA complaint may be rendered invalid.
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 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.
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.
