i. A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
ii. 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. Providing URLs in the body of an email is the best way to help us locate content quickly.
iv. 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.
v. 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.
vi. 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 be aware that under Section 512(f) any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability for damages. Do not issue false claims!
In addition, all information provided in this legal notice may be forwarded to the person who provided the allegedly infringing content.
If by chance, you feel your content was misidentified as infringing, you can file a counter-notification. If you did not have all of the rights to post the material at issue, you MUST NOT submit a counter-notification. Under Section 512(f) of the Copyright Act, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability. Be advised that we enforce a policy that provides for the termination in appropriate circumstances of subscribers who are report infringers.
There are two processes for counter-notifications:
• DMCA counter-notification
• International counter-notification
If the original claim of alleged infringement was submitted under Section 512© of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, you must use the DMCA counter-notification.
International claimants in some countries may submit claims under a slightly different process. In these cases, while the DMCA counter-notification is still acceptable, a user who does not live in the United States may alternatively respond with an international counter-notification.
The main difference is that the DMCA process requires that the user consent to the jurisdiction of a United States court.
If you think your Video/Audio/Photo is potentially infringing on someone else’s copyright ask yourself if this truly is your original material or if you are using someone else’s. If you think you might be infringing, then think twice before uploading it and please consult your legal council.
Please check to make sure that all aspects of your content are original including video clips and audio tracks. For example, if you upload an audio track that is owned by a record label or artist without asking their permission, your Audio track may be infringing on someone else’s copyright and may be removed.
