Notice for Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA)

Outline of Provisions for Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA)

The United States government has provided recourse to copyright owners for alleged violations of copyright infringements for authors of original works that have been infringed upon (see U.S. Code, Title 17 § 512). This recourse is specific to works that have been infringed upon that are located on the Internet.

If you are the originating author of copyrighted material and believe in good faith your original copyrighted works have been infringed upon, you can contact both the person or entity infringing on your copyright(s) and the designated agent of the Internet service provider (ISP) of a Website where the alleged copyright infringements of your works have been found.

We are committed to full compliance of both United States copyright laws and international trade laws and practices, so if you discover your works have been infringed upon whether through content found on this Website or on any other Website, we urge you to contact the Website owner or the individual who has infringed upon your copyrighted material. Our email for this is: legal [at] ITfamilyGroup.com.

If upon your submission of a properly filed complaint as outlined under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, and we or our ISP determine your claim is legitimate given the findings of fact in this matter; both we and/or our ISP will make every reasonable effort to block access to the alleged works by the general public that are deemed to be an infringement upon your rights.

Upon our findings in your favor, we and our ISP will forward a copy of your notification of alleged copyright infringement to the infringer. Upon notification to the individual or organization that has allegedly infringed upon your copyrighted work(s), we will allow the party of the alleged copyright infringement who believes they have been wrongfully been filed against to submit a counter notice of copyright to you and the ISP that your Website is hosted on.

Alleged Copyright Infringement Notification Action

If you feel that your original works have been infringed upon, please send DMCA notification of infringement to:
Copyright Agent: ITfamilyGroup.com, P.O. Box 5801, Gainesville, FL 32627, United States, legal [at] ITfamilyGroup.com
ISP Copyright Agent: ITfamilyGroup.com, P.O. Box 5801, Gainesville, FL 32627, United States, legal [at] ITfamilyGroup.com

As a convenience to you, the following is the process by which you are required to file a Notice of Copyright Infringement upon either the owner of this Website or our ISP. You must provide written communication that clearly defines the nature of the copyright infringement as outlined below.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: IF YOU MATERIALLY MISREPRESENT YOUR CLAIM OF A COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT BY MAKING CLAIM THAT OUR WEBSITE OR A WEB PAGE OF OUR WEBSITE IS INFRINGING UPON A COPYRIGHT THAT YOU HOLD, AND YOU ARE UNABLE TO SUBSTANTIATE YOUR CLAIM, YOU WILL BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ATTORNEY FEES, COSTS FOR SERVING LEGAL DOCUMENTS, COURT COSTS, AND DAMAGES. BE SURE YOU CAN SUBSTANTIATE YOUR CLAIM OR YOU WILL COST YOURSELF A LOT OF TIME AND MONEY THAT YOU MAY NOT WANT TO SPEND.

We strongly advise anyone considering a potential claim for copyrighted materials to consult an attorney prior to making any legal claim on an infringement of your original works. As a courtesy, we have provided a process to follow to expedite your claim should you feel that an infringement has occurred on this or any other Website that you might discover such an infringement.

1. You should fully identify the copyrighted work that you feel has been infringed upon. This is done by documenting the Website, the page of the Website, the URL, and a screenshot of the page as well as a print out of the page showing the URL.

2. Include a written description of the copyrighted material that you feel has been infringed upon that will accurately describe its nature and content.

3. You must provide the Website Owner and/or ISP with sufficient contact information for yourself and/or your legal representative, enough that will allow the responding party(s) to contact you. As a minimum, the law requires that you provide an active email address and a physical land line telephone number in order for you to be contacted by the Website owner, ISP or party that is allegedly infringing upon your content. This is required so that you can be contacted directly about your claim. We recommend you provide your physical mailing address and/or that of your legal representative so that your claim can be processed most efficiently.

4. We recommend that you always consult with an attorney on important legal matters so that you can be assured that your claim is properly presented; however, you may provide an affidavit similar to the following suggested one that specifically affirms your claim. The following statement (or one similar as prescribed by your legal representative) must accompany your official complaint in order to satisfy the legal criterion associated with your claim: “I hereby affirm under penalty of perjury that this notification for copyright infringement is true and accurate to the best of my knowledge and belief. I further affirm under penalty of perjury that I am the owner and/or legal agent of the copyrighted material being infringed upon and duly authorized to act upon this copyright infringement as the legal owner and/or legal agent of same, and that as the copyright owner and/or legal agent of the infringed upon material, that the individual or entity who is infringing upon the material in question does not have authorization or legal right to do so to the best of my knowledge and belief.”

5. Your claim may be sent by email provided your claim includes a proper electronic signature as outlined in Title 17 U.S. Code § 512(c)(3). If you are uncertain about this, please consult this section of the U.S.C. for precise details in order to present a valid notification of copyright infringement.

Claimed Copyright Infringement Counter Notification Process

The owner or ISP will make a good faith effort to notify you if a notice of copyright infringement is filed against you, and will provide a copy of the notice to you at the last known physical and/or electronic address known. In the event you have had someone file a claim against you for copyright infringement and you believe in good faith that the plaintiff of such an action is flawed or in error, you have a legal right to file a counter claim against the complaining party(s). At such time as the Website owner and/or the ISP has received a valid counter claim, present Digital Media Copyright Act allows for any content in question, i.e. blocked content or removed content, to be re-enabled and restored. Upon your proper counter claim notification to the Website owner and ISP, the owner of this Website or the ISP shall within 7 business days of notification or as permitted by law, restore the content that has been blocked or removed, unless the Website owner or ISP receive notification that the plaintiff of the infringement has filed an action in a court of competent jurisdiction for restraint of the use of alleged infringed upon content.

IMPORTANT NOTE: You are strongly encouraged to consult an attorney if you are not sure certain material you have published is protected by copyright laws, as the United States government takes copyright infringement very seriously, and the present copyright law of the United States provides significant penalties when a false counter notice is filed in response to a copyright infringement notice.

IMPORTANT LEGAL DISCLAIMER: The foregoing notice has been provided for informational purposes only. It has not been provided for, is not intended as, nor should it be construed as legal advice to the reader. If you feel that your intellectual property rights (copyright, patents, trademark, service mark, etc) have been infringed upon or if a notice of such an infringement has been filed against you, you should seek competent legal counsel immediately.
