DMCA

The following describes the DMCA Compliance for our website.

We are committed to responding to any alleged copyright violations, should they
occur. Notice of any alleged violation should take the form proposed by the U.S.
Digital Millennium Copyright Act as revealed at
http://www.copyright.gov

Remedy
If any material infringes on the copyright of any offended party, we may remove
the content, prevent access to it, terminate or block access for those
responsible for the content, and/or any other action deemed appropriate. We may
also pass along record of the incident for documentation and/or publication by
third parties at our discretion.

Not Legal Advice/No Attorney-Client Relationship
If you believe your rights have been violated, it can be a serious matter. This
DMCA notice exists solely to effectuate our efforts, as website owners, to
prevent and eliminate infringement on intellectual property rights. It is no
substitute for the assistance of competent legal counsel. Other remedies and
action, such as against an internet service provider (ISP), may exist. You may
wish to seek legal help immediately.

Notification
For your convenience and to speed resolution, notice of alleged infringement may
be tendered via email, using the email address and/or contact information
provided on this website. We warn that you will be liable for any and all
statutory and common law damages, as well as court costs and attorney fees, if
you falsify a claim that your copyrights have been violated. Six figure awards
have already been granted for bogus complaints, so seeking the help of competent
counsel is advised.

Assuming you still wish to assert copyright violation, you should provide the
following to speed up the process:

STEP 1. Identify in adequate detail the copyrighted item you believe has been
violated, by providing the URL to the protected work, ISBN#, or otherwise.
STEP 2. Identify the URL of the webpage that you assert is infringing the
copyrighted work listed in item #1 above.
STEP 3. Provide contact information for yourself (email address is preferred,
phone is suggested).
STEP 4. Provide information sufficient to allow us to notify the
owner/administrator of the allegedly infringing webpage or other content such as
a blog or forum posting (email address is preferred).
STEP 5. Include the following statement: “I have a good faith belief that use of
the copyrighted materials described above as allegedly infringing is not
authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.”
STEP 6. Include the following statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury,
that the information in the notification is accurate and that I am the copyright
owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that
is allegedly infringed.”
STEP 7. Digitally sign your affirmation.

Counter-Notification
Note that the party representing the affected website or provider of content can
issue a counter-notification under sections 512(g)(2) and (3) of the Digital
Millennium Copyright Act, and so we may again post or link to the content in
that case.
For your convenience, counter notification may be tendered via email, using the
email address and/or contact information provided on this website. We warn that
you will be liable for any and all statutory and common law damages, as well as
court costs and attorney fees, if you falsify a claim that others’ copyrights
have NOT been violated

Assuming you still wish to file a counter-notice, you should provide the
following to speed up the process:

STEP 1. Identify the specific URLs or other unique identifying information of
material that we have removed or disabled access to.
STEP 2. Provide 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, 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.
STEP 3. Include the following statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury,
that I have a good faith belief that each item of content identified above was
removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the
material to be removed or disabled, or that the material identified by the
complainant has been removed or disabled at the URL identified and will no
longer be shown.”
STEP 4. Digitally sign the affirmation.
