  • Your physical or electronic signature;
  • Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;

  • Your name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the federal district in which you are located (or Los Angeles County, State of California, if you reside outside of the U.S.), and that you will accept service of process from the person who filed the notice of copyright infringement or an agent of such person.

If we receive a valid counter-notification, we may reinstate the removed or disabled material in accordance with Section 512(g)(2) of the DMCA.

Liability for Misrepresentation under the DMCA

Please note that, under Section 512(f) of the DMCA, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents

  • that material or activity is infringing, or
  • that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification

will be liable for damages, including costs and attorneys' fees, incurred by the alleged infringer, by any copyright owner or copyright owner’s authorized licensee, or by a service provider, who is injured by such misrepresentation, as the result of the service provider relying upon such misrepresentation in removing or disabling access to the material or activity claimed to be infringing, or in replacing the removed material or ceasing to disable access to it.

Accordingly, if you are not sure whether certain material or activity infringes your or others’ copyrights, please consult with a copyright attorney first.

REPEAT INFRINGERS:

For any users who we determine, in our sole discretion, are repeat infringers of third-party intellectual property rights, we will terminate their accounts and/or memberships, as the case may be, and prohibit them from creating new accounts through the StoryBots Services.
