StackPloy (hereinafter “COMPANY”) respects the rights of others and is committed to handling complaints of copyright infringement in compliance with the applicable international, federal, and state laws, including the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).
If you believe your copyright interests are being infringed by content hosted on a server that is on COMPANY’s network, please follow the below instructions to send us a written DMCA takedown notice. The notice should be mailed or emailed to:
600 Lenora Street #634
Seattle, WA 98121
In order for us to take action from your request, your DMCA takedown notice MUST include all of the following details which are required by Section 512(c) the Digital Millennium Copyright Act:
1. An electronic or physical signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
2. A description of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or if multiple copyrighted works at a single site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
3. A description of where the material you claim is infringing is located on the site, and any other information reasonably sufficient to permit Company to locate the material;
4. Your address, telephone number, and e-mail address where we can contact you regarding the issue;
5. A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material on the allegedly infringing web pages is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;
6. A statement made by you that, under penalty of perjury, the information in the notification is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
Company may respond to any take down notices you submit by removing or disabling access to the content that is claimed to be infringing. We may also choose to terminate the hosting account of the account holder who was responsible, such as if repeated complaints are submitted against a particular account holder, or if we deem a particular violation to be worthy of account termination for a violation of our terms. In such instances where we remove or disable access based upon a take down notice that we receive, we will attempt in good faith to contact the account holder of the server or web site that is impacted so that the account holder is given the opportunity to submit a counter notification.
Please note that any take down notices that we receive may be made available to the public and/or may be sent to third parties who make it available to the public.
Please also note that under the DMCA regulations, the safe harbor provision in Section 512(g)(2) requires that service providers (in this case COMPANY) notify the particular web site owner or account holder that certain content has been removed, and to give them an opportunity to send a written notice to us to challenge the removal by indicating that it was removed without proper cause.
If a proper counter-notice is received claiming that the content does not infringe the copyright interests, then the service provider (in this case COMPANY) must promptly notify the party who submitted the original DMCA take down notice of the objection. If the copyright owner then does not file a lawsuit within 14 days, the service provider (in this case COMPANY) is required to restore the content on the network.
Please note that if you materially misrepresent that your copyright interests are being infringed and they are not really infringed, you could be liable for damages (including costs and attorney fees) caused by the misrepresentation.
