Notice and Takedown Procedure, in addition to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act’s Policy
In accordance with the United States Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) (the text of which can be found on the website of the United States Copyright Office, which can be found at http://www.copyright.gov), our policy is to respond as quickly as possible to valid notices of alleged copyright infringement. We will not respond to an invalid notification.
When using XtremPoint (“www.xtrempoint.com”) in any way, you are automatically assumed to be in full compliance with all copyright laws in your jurisdiction. However, if we are notified of an alleged copyright infringement in a timely manner, we will immediately terminate contributors and remove or disable access to the content in question. The same will hold true whether the applicable law is that of the United States or another country.
Let’s pretend that we respond to this type of notice by either removing the offending material or blocking access to it. When this happens, we’ll try to track down the original creator of the content so that they can file a counter-notification under 512(g)(2) and (3) of the DMCA. Also, we may keep a record of all notifications of possible violations that we look into.
INFRINGEMENT Notification: How to File a DMCA Notice of Copyright Violation
Once XtremPoint receives the necessary notification of an alleged infringement, it will follow the procedures outlined in this document and the DMCA.
In order to file an infringement complaint with XtremPoint, you must send the company a letter, fax, or email. The following is a list of required fields for this message.
It’s important to remember that you could be held financially responsible for damages (including court costs and attorneys’ fees) if you make a false claim of copyright infringement (s). As a result, you may want to talk to an attorney if you have doubts about your right to the copyright or whether the copyright rules adequately protect your content.
If you want a quick response to your inquiry, please write it out in the format shown below (with the section numbers):
Your name, address, phone number, and email address (if you have one) where you can be reached as the complaining party;
A statement that “I am the owner of the copyright or an authorized agent acting on the owner’s behalf” must accompany any copyrighted material.
Indicate which of the legally protected material you think was abused. (For instance, “the copyrighted image at issue is the ‘Content Title,'” which can be described as “Description: literary work, image, etc.” by “name of the author,” in addition to any information on federal registration that may be available.)
Identification of the specific infringing material or activity (such as “Title of Article” at this URL: www.xtrempoint.com/) and information reasonably sufficient to permit XtremPoint to locate the material (e.g., “Title of Article”).
