DMCA

As a visitor to venturejolt.com, please be aware that we, like everyone else, value and protect the rights of others when it comes to their intellectual property. Legal notices for the removal of content can be sent to our DMCA Agent as specified in Section 512(c) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, Title 17, United States Code. The “safe harbour” rules of the DMCA give us, as ISP, protection from such allegations of infringement. When filing a claim of infringement with us in good faith, you must provide us with notice that includes the following details:

The Claim And Notice Of Infringement

1. Authentication by the copyright holder (or someone authorised to do so on the holder’s behalf), either physically or digitally;
2. a description of the allegedly infringing work protected by intellectual property laws;
3. Detailed information about the infringing content and its location, should be sufficient for the service provider to remove it. [In order to help us locate the allegedly offensive piece of art, please include the URL of the page in question];
4. Identifying information (name, physical address, email, phone, fax) substantially sufficient to allow the service provider to contact the complaining party;
5. A statement that the complainant reasonably believes that the copyright holder has not approved the use of the content in question; and
6. Under penalty of perjury, a statement that the complaining party is authorised to act on behalf of the copyright owner and that the information in the notification is correct.

Anyone who willfully and significantly falsifies information in a notification of infringement under Title 17 USC 512(c) is subject to civil damage penalties, including costs and attorney fees (3).

You can use the Contact page to notify us of any content that needs to be removed. If you want your message read quickly, email is the best option.

Please be aware that if you file a claim of copyright infringement with us, we may have to reveal your identity and the details of your claim to the suspected infringer. By filing a claim, you consent to the disclosure of your identity and claim to the alleged infringer.

Reply Notification: Restoring Content

If you have received a takedown notice for alleged copyright infringement and would like to have the removed content reinstated, you may do so by sending us a counter notification. As per Section 512(g)(3) of the 17 USC, such a notice must be provided to our DMCA Agent in writing and must include basically the following elements:

1. Sign this document (physically or digitally).
2. Details about the content that was removed and why it was removed from its original place.
3. A sworn declaration explaining why you think the content was mistakenly removed or deactivated.
4. Information identifying you as the alleged infringer, including your name, address, and telephone number, as well as 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 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 originally provided notification of the alleged infringing activity.
5. Use the link in the About us section of this website to send us your rebuttal. In this case, email is your best bet.

Regulations For Repeat Offenders

Copyright infringement is taken very seriously by us. We keep track of copyright holders’ DMCA notices and make a good faith effort to identify any repeat infringers, as required by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act’s repeat infringer policy. People who are found to be repeat infringers will have their accounts closed.
