Copyright Infringement

We respect copyright law and expect users to do the same. It is our policy to terminate in appropriate circumstances account holders who repeatedly infringe the rights of copyright holders. 

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA") provides a remedy for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials posted on the Service infringe your copyright, you may send us a "Notification of Claimed Infringement" requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must comply with the DMCA and include the following information: (i) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the works that have been allegedly infringed; (ii) identification of the copyrighted work alleged to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on the Service are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (iii) identification of the specific material alleged to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow us to locate the material on the Service; (iv) your name, address, telephone number, and email address (if available); (v) a statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (vi) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send our Copyright Agent a counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent: (a) Your physical or electronic signature; (b) Identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled; (c) A statement that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content; and (d) Your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court in the state of Washington, and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.

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 we may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member or user, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored in 10 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at our sole discretion.

Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Service should be sent to:
