As you may know, spam blockers sometimes reject important emails from unknown parties.

In an effort to be transparent in removing or restricting access to user-uploaded content, Author may make public any DMCA notice received (with personal contact information removed). This may include posting the notice to a public-facing website, among other methods. After removing access to the material pursuant to a valid DMCA notice, Author will immediately notify the user responsible for the allegedly infringing material that it has removed or disabled access to the material. Author reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to immediately terminate the account of any member who is the subject of repeated DMCA notifications.

Your name, address, telephone number, and email address. A statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located (or the federal district courts located in Essex County, Massachusetts if your address is outside of the United States), and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided the original DMCA notification or an agent of such person. The following statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I 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.”

Your Signature

Upon receipt of a valid counter-notification, Author will forward it to Notifying Party who submitted the original DMCA notification. The original Notifying Party (or the copyright holder he or she represents) will then have ten (10) days to notify us that he or she has filed legal action relating to the allegedly infringing material. If Author does not receive any such notification within ten (10) days, we may restore the material to the Services.
