DMCA Copyright Policy
Last Updated: January 24, 2017
Stockmusic.net respects the intellectual property rights of others and expects its Members to do the same. In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (“DMCA”), Stockmusic.net will respond expeditiously to claims of potential copyright infringement committed in the Community.
Reporting Potential Infringements
If you are a copyright owner or authorized to act on behalf of an owner, please report potential copyright infringements by emailing an infringement notice to email@example.com.
Please include the following information in your notice:
- Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site.
- Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to locate the material. Providing URLs in the body of an email is the best way to help us locate content quickly.
- Your contact information, such as an address, telephone number, and an e-mail address.
- A statement that you, as the complaining party, or as one who has authorization to act on behalf of the copyright owner, has a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law (e.g., "I hereby state that I have a good faith belief that the disputed use of the copyrighted material is not authorized by the copyright owner or its agent").
- A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed (e.g., "I hereby state that the information in this notice is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that I am the owner, or authorized to act on behalf of the owner, of the copyright or of an exclusive right under the copyright that is allegedly infringed").
- Your full legal name and your electronic signature.
Upon receipt of your notice, Stockmusic.net will take whatever action, in its sole discretion, it deems appropriate, including removal of the potentially infringing material and/or termination of the potential infringer’s account. Please also note that under Section 512(f) of the DMCA, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability.
Countering a DMCA Notification
If you believe your Content was wrongfully removed by a DMCA notice, please send a counter notice to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information. To speed up our ability to process your counter notice, please use the following format (including section numbers)
- Identification of the specific material that has been removed or to which Stockmusic.net has disabled access.
- Your full name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address.
- A statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located (or the State of Delaware) if your address is outside of the United States), and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification under subsection (c) (1) (C) or an agent of such person.
- The following statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.”
- Your electronic signature.
Please note that under Section 512(f) of the DMCA, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability. We enforce a policy that provides for termination of the Community for users who are repeat infringers. Accordingly, if you are not sure whether certain material infringes the copyright of others, we suggest you contact an attorney.
What Happens Next?
After we receive your counter-notice, we will forward it to the party who submitted the original claim of copyright infringement. Please note that when we forward the counter-notice, it includes your personal information. By submitting a counter-notice, you consent to having your information revealed in this way. We will not forward the counter-notice to any party other than the original claimant.
After we send out the counter-notice, the claimant must then notify us within ten (10) days that he or she has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain you from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material distributed via Stockmusic.net. If we receive such notification, we will be unable to restore access to the content until resolution of any court action. If we do not receive such notification, we may, in our sole discretion, reinstate access to the content.
