The Digital Millennium Copyright Act («DMCA») of 1998 addresses the remedies available to copyright owners and the responsibilities of Internet service providers (ISPs). Under DMCA, a copyright owner claiming that unauthorized material is stored on a system or network controlled by an ISP may provide specific notice of such claim to the ISP’s Designated Agent and request that the infringing material be removed or that access to the stored material be blocked.
If you believe in good faith you have such a claim, please promptly notify tradephoneline.com’s Designated Agent:
To be effective under DMCA, your notification must be made in writing or by e-mail and must include the following:
If you received a notice from tradephoneline.com regarding a claim of infringement, you may take the following steps to resolve the issue in order to prevent further action by tradephoneline.com.
Please do not send legal arguments to tradephoneline.com. Tradephoneline.com does not determine the validity of copyright complaints; the actions taken by tradephoneline.com are specifically prescribed by the DMCA, not the result of a determination by tradephoneline.com of the merits of any claim.
If your material is removed and you believe in good faith that such claim has been wrongly made against you by the claiming party, you may submit a counter-notice to tradephoneline.com. You should provide your counter-notification to:
A counter-notification under the DMCA must contain the following information:
If tradephoneline.com receives a valid counter-notification, the DMCA provides that the removed material will be restored (or the account re-activated) after a waiting period of at least 10, and not more than 14, days unless the complaining party obtains injunctive relief stopping the re-posting of the material.
Before you provide us with counter-notification denying a claim of Infringement, you should carefully review your statement to ensure that it is accurate and made in good faith. Challenges to claims of infringement must be substantiated in court to withstand the claims by the copyright owner.
Please note: Do not send any other notices, including notifications of account termination, service complaints or any other communications, to the Designated Agent. The Designated Agent is appointed solely for the purpose of receiving and reviewing claims of online copyright infringement made pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998. Further, as noted above, please do not send legal arguments to tradephoneline.com or attempt to contest the merits of a particular claim. The DMCA does not appoint ISPs to decide copyright complaints. Non-DMCA notices received by the Designated Agent will be deleted with no further action.
