(c) What If My Content Was Subject to a Take-Down?
- If you have had a posting removed under the above take-down procedure, and you believe that the posting is not infringing, you may send a counter-notice to our copyright agent at the address(es) listed above. Your counter-notice must contain all of the following information in order to be a valid counter-notice:
- Your physical or electronic signature;
- Identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled;
- A statement that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content; and
- Your name, address, telephone number, and email address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal and state courts within the jurisdiction of the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey, and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.
If a counter-notice is received by our copyright agent, we may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party, informing that person that we may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. The removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at our sole discretion, unless the original complaining party seeks a court order to stop the replacing/restoring of the content.
We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice pursuant to this section.
We may, in appropriate circumstances and in our sole discretion, prohibit users who may be repeat infringers from accessing the Site or making submissions.
