DMCA Complaints

It is our policy to respond to notices of alleged infringement in compliance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) and other applicable intellectual property laws, which may include removing or disabling access to material claimed to be the subject of infringing activity. If we remove or disable access to comply with the DMCA, we will make a good-faith attempt to contact the owner of the allegedly infringing content so that such owner may make a counter notification pursuant to sections 512(g)(2) and (3) of the DMCA.  It is our policy to document all notices of alleged infringement on which we acts.  Please note that you will be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) if you materially misrepresent that content, a product, or an activity is infringing or not infringing the copyrights or other proprietary rights of others.

To file a notice of infringement with us, you must provide a written communication (by fax or regular mail—not by email, except by prior agreement) that: (1) identifies in sufficient detail the copyrighted or proprietary work that you believe has been infringed, (2) identifies the material that you claim is infringing the copyrighted or proprietary work you listed, including any file name, message ID, and/or URL of such material, (3) provides information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact you (email address is preferred), (4) includes the following statement: “I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted or proprietary materials described above on the allegedly infringing web pages is not authorized by the rights owner, its agent, or the law,” (5) is signed by you, and (6) is sent to the address or number written below.

You may make a counter notification pursuant to sections 512(g)(2) and (3) of the DMCA.  When we receive a counter notification, we will reinstate the material in question.  To file a counter notification, you must provide a written communication (by fax or regular mail—not by email, except by prior agreement) that:  (1) identifies the specific file names, message IDs, and/or URLs of material that we have removed or to which we have disabled access; (2) includes your name, address, telephone number, email address, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located (or Kansas, if your address is outside of the United States), and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification to us of infringement or an agent of such person; (3) includes the following statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief that each of the proprietary material identified above was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled;” (4) is signed by you; and (5) is sent to the address or number written below.
