DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act)
At newshutt.com, we take copyright infringement seriously and comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). If you believe that your copyrighted work has been copied and is accessible on our website in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, you may notify us by sending a notice to our designated DMCA agent.
To be effective, your notice must include the following information:
- A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
- Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
- Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to locate the material;
- Information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted;
- A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
- A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
Please send your DMCA notice to our designated agent at [insert contact information for designated agent, including name, address, phone number, and email address]. Please note that any misrepresentations in your notice may result in liability for damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees.
We take all DMCA notices seriously and will investigate each notice we receive. Upon receipt of a valid notice, we will promptly remove or disable access to the infringing material, and we will notify the alleged infringer of your claim. We may also terminate the account of the alleged infringer if appropriate.
If you believe that your material has been removed in error or that you have the right to use the material, you may send a counter-notice to our designated DMCA agent. Your counter-notice must include:
- Your physical or electronic signature;
- Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;
- A statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled;
- Your name, address, and telephone number; and
- A statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal district court for the judicial district in which your address is located, or if your address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which the service provider may be found, and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided the original DMCA notice or an agent of such person.
Upon receipt of a valid counter-notice, we will forward it to the original DMCA complainant and we will restore the material within 10-14 business days unless the complainant notifies us that they have filed an action seeking a court order to restrain you from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on our website.
We reserve the right to terminate the accounts of repeat infringers.
