The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) provides a notice and takedown framework for potential copyright infringements. This framework allows copyright owners to bring a notification of claimed infringement for any potentially infringing works that may be hosted or located on SoSpoilt. We act expeditiously to remove such works.
If a creator has potentially misused your copyrighted work, please submit a notification of claimed infringement by submitting the information listed below. Be sure to conform to the applicable notification provisions of section 512 of the Copyright Act.
1. Personal information:
- Your name
- Your address
- Your telephone number
- Your email address
2. Identify the original copyrighted work that you claim is being infringed. If multiple works are being infringed, then please list all of the original works applicable.
3. Identify the infringing work(s). Include the URL of the creator's page, as well as any other relevant URLs or information necessary to identify or locate the potentially infringing work(s).
4. Read, understand and include this statement:
"I have a good faith belief that the material I am reporting is not authorized by the copyright owner, an agent of the owner, or the law. The information in this notice is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, I am authorized on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed."
5. Your physical or electronic signature.
The DMCA, as a legal document, does require that you provide accurate personal information. It is standard for websites to post such legal documents online or share such documents with the claimed infringer. As a result your personal information may be publicly shared in this process.
If you have received a notification of claimed infringement on your SoSpoilt page, you have the option of removing the work or bringing a counter-notification by following the steps listed below. Be sure to conform to the applicable counter notification provisions of section 512(g)(3) of the Copyright Act.
If you receive a notification, you have 48 hours from when we emailed you until we remove the content or your page to comply with the DMCA.
If you wish to dispute this notification of claimed infringement, you can send us a valid counter-notification. For a counter-notification to be valid it must comply with the applicable counter-notification provisions of section 512(g)(3) of the Copyright Act.
We will forward this counter-notification to the original sender of the notification. If the original sender wishes to keep your content removed then the next step for them is to sue in federal court. We strongly advise that you speak with an attorney before taking this step.
To send a counter-notice we suggest you follow this template:
1. Your personal information:
-Your telephone number
2. In your own words identify the content that was removed and include the URL of your page. If the work was located somewhere other than your creator home page, then please specify where it was located.
3. Read, understand and include this statement:
"Under penalty of perjury I have a good faith belief that the material was removed as a result of mistake or misidentification. I consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which my address is located. If my address is outside of the United States, I consent to the jurisdiction of any judicial district in which SoSpoilt may be found. I will accept service of process from the person who sent the original takedown notice, or an agent of that person."
4. Your physical or electronic signature.
Please note that if we receive multiple DMCA notices for your page that we may ban you from using SoSpoilt as part of our repeat infringer policy. Any notices you send a counter-notice for will not be counted against you in our repeat infringer policy.
