In addition, you agree that, in the event we receive a written demand from a third party alleging that any User Content infringes upon, dilutes, tarnishes or otherwise violates its trademark or trade secret rights, we may in our sole discretion, remove or disable access to such User Content.
If you are a copyright owner, or an agent thereof, and believe that any of the content on the Site infringes upon your copyrights or other intellectual property right, pursuant to the DMCA, you may submit a notification by providing our Copyright Agent (contact information below) with the following information:
- A physical or electronic signature of the copyright, or other intellectual property right, owner (or someone authorized to act on behalf of the owner);
- Identification of the protected work and intellectual property right (i.e., copyright or trademark) claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple protected works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works;
- Identification and location 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 permit Defined Athletics to locate the material;
- Information reasonably sufficient to permit Defined Athletics to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address;
- 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 or other intellectual property right owner, its agent, or the law; and
- A statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate, and that you are authorized to act on behalf of the intellectual property right owner of the right that is allegedly infringed.
You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with the procedures provided in this subsection for reporting a claimed copyright infringement, your notice may not be valid under the DMCA. See 17 U.S.C. 512(c)(3) for further details.
With respect to content that was taken down due to a copyright infringement claim, if you believe that your content that was removed (or access was disabled to) is not copyright infringing, or that you have authorization from the rightful copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to law, to post and use the allegedly infringing material in your posted content, you may send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent:
- Your physical or electronic signature;
- Identification or description of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the original location where the material appeared before it was removed or disabled;
- A statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the material removed or disabled; and
- Your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, 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, Defined Athletics may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed material or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the material provider, member or user, the removed material may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at Defined Athletics’ sole discretion. See 17 U.S.C. 512(g)(3) for further details. Our designated copyright agent (the “Copyright Agent”) will receive notifications of claimed infringement and counter-notices at 3125 Woodlawn Drive, Suffolk, VA 23434 or via email at [email protected].
