This kind of opened my mind about sharing copyrighted materials. Yes, we'll stop sharing your movie, or music. First, we need you to jump through some hoops that were designed by the Department of Motor Vehicles: Notice to Owners of Copyrighted Works The DMCA provides a legal procedure by which you can request any Online Service Provider to disable access to a website where your copyrighted work(s) are appearing without your permission. There are two parts to the legal procedure: (1) Writing a Proper DMCA Notice, and (2) Sending the Proper DMCA Notice to Plunder Designated Agent. How to Write a Proper DMCA Notice A Proper DMCA Notice will notify Plunder of particular facts in a document signed under penalty of perjury. We refer to this as a âProper DMCA Notice.â To Write a Proper DMCA notice, please provide the following information: Identify yourself as either: The owner of a copyrighted work(s), or A person âauthorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.â State your contact information, including your TRUE NAME, street address, telephone number, and email address. Identify the copyrighted work that you believe is being infringed, or if a large number of works are appearing at a single website, a representative list of the works. Identify the material that you claim is infringing your copyrighted work, to which you are requesting that Plunder disable access over the World Wide Web. Identify the location of the material on the World Wide Web by providing âinformation reasonably sufficient to permit Plunder to locate the material.â State that you have âa good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agents, or the law.â State that the information in the notice is accurate, under penalty of perjury. Sign the notice with either a physical or electronic signature. Sending The Proper DMCA Notice to the Designated Agent To exercise your DMCA rights, you must send your Proper DMCA Notice to the following agent designated by Plunder (the âDesignated Agentâ.) The contact information for Plunder's Designated Agent is: Email: abuse@Plunder.com What We Do When We Receive A Proper DMCA Notice Plunder will follow the procedures provided in the DCMA, which prescribed a notice and takedown procedure, subject to the webmasterâs right to submit a Counter-notification claiming lawful use of the disabled works. Notice and Takedown Procedure It is expected that all users of any part of the Plunder system will comply with applicable copyright laws. However, if Plunder is notified of claimed copyright infringement, or otherwise becomes aware of facts and circumstances from which infringement is apparent, it will respond expeditiously by removing, or disabling access to, the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity. Plunder will comply with the appropriate provisions of the DMCA in the event a counter notification is received by its Designated Agent. Notice to Users of Plunder Systems Pursuant to the Terms of Service Agreement you agreed to when you were permitted to become a System User, you are required to use only lawfully-acquired creative works as website content, and your website may be disabled upon receipt of notice that infringing material is appearing there. Plunder also respects the legitimate interests of webmasters in utilizing media content lawfully, being permitted to present a response to claims of infringement, and obtaining timely restoration of access to a website that has been disabled due to a copyright complaint. Your System Use privileges will also be suspended. You may protest a DMCA notice by submitting a Counter-notification as described below. Writing and Submitting a Counter-notification If access to your website is disabled due to operation of the Plunder notice and takedown procedure described above, and you believe the takedown was improper, you must submit a Counter-notification. Writing a Counter-notification To write a proper counter-notification, please provide the following information: State that access to your website was disabled due to operation of the notice and takedown procedure. Identify the material that has been removed and designate its URL prior to removal. State, under penalty of perjury: Your name, address, and telephone number, That you âhave a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as result of mistake or misidentification of the material," That you âconsent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the address is located." Sending the Counter-notification To exercise your DMCA rights, you must send your Counter-notification to the âDesignated Agentâ for Plunder, whose contact information is: Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Any lawyers on ET? It seems you can give the "run around" to people who are seen as "legitimate" copyright holders.
