This page provides instructions for filing the DMCA takedown notice and counter-notice.
You may send us a notice regarding infringing material that appears on this website. A valid DMCA takedown notice must contain substantially the following information:
(i) the signature of the copyright owner or an authorized agent; (ii) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple works are on a single site, a representative list of such works; (iii) identification of the infringing material or activity (or the reference or link to such material) and information reasonably sufficient to permit the OSP to locate the material (or the reference or link); (iv) contact information for the copyright owner or authorized agent; (v) a statement that the person sending the notice has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and (vi) a statement that the information in the notice is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the person sending the notice is authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.
Once we receive your notice, we will act expeditiously to remove or disable access to the material and then notify you the material has been removed. Note that we may send the original notice to the alleged infringer.
If you believe that the material was removed as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material, you may submit a counter-notice requesting the reinstatement of the material. After we receive your counter-notice, we will forward it to the original complaining party, informing that person that we may restore the material or cease disabling it. Please understand that filing a counter-notice may lead to legal proceedings between you and the original complaining party. Unless the original complaining party files an action seeking a court order against you for the impugned material, the material may be restored after no less than ten (10) and no more than fourteen (14) business days of our receipt of the counter-notice.
A valid counter-notice must contain substantially the following information:
(i) your physical or electronic signature; (ii) 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; (iii) a statement under penalty of perjury that you 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; (iv) your name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the address is located, or if your address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which the service provider may be found, 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.
GJW will not be held liable for the good-faith removal or disabling of access to material claimed to be infringing as the result of a compliant takedown notice—even if the material is not ultimately found to be infringing.
