The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under the U.S. copyright law. If Visitor believes in good faith that materials hosted by the Site infringe Visitor’s copyright, Visitor or Visitor’s agent may send to Website a notice requesting that the material be removed or access to it be blocked. Any notification by a copyright owner or a person authorized to act on its behalf that fails to comply with requirements of the DMCA shall not be considered sufficient notice and shall not be deemed to confer upon Website actual knowledge of facts or circumstances from which infringing material or acts are evident. If Visitor believes in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against Visitor, the DMCA permits Visitor to send to Website a counter-notice. All notices and counter notices must meet the then current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright for details. If Visitor believes that Visitor’s work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide Website’s Copyright Agent the following information:
- An electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest;
- identification of the copyrighted work that Visitor claims has been infringed;
- identification of where the material that Visitor claims is infringing is located on the Site or Service reasonably sufficient to permit Website to locate the material;
- Information reasonably sufficient to permit Visitor to contact Visitor, such as Visitor’s address, telephone number and, if available, Visitor’s email address;
- a statement by Visitor that Visitor has a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
- a statement by Visitor, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in Visitor’s notice is accurate and that Visitor is the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf.
Website’s Copyright Agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement or counter notices can be reached as follows. E-mail for notice: copyrights@MyWellbeingCompass.com. Website suggests that Visitor consults Visitor’s legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice. Also, Visitor should be aware that there can be penalties for false claims under the DMCA.
