Procedures for Requesting Removal of Infringing Material
- identify in sufficient detail the copyrighted work(s) claimed to have been infringed;
- provide reasonably sufficient information to locate the material claimed to be infringing (e.g., a link to the page that contains the material);
- include a statement by the copyright owner or authorized agent that he or she has a good faith belief that the disputed use is unauthorized;
- include a statement that the information contained in the request is accurate and an attestation, under penalty of perjury, that the requesting party is the copyright owner or authorized agent;
- include the copyright owner’s or authorized agent’s name, mailing address, telephone number, and email address; and
- provide the electronic or physical signature of the copyright owner or a person authorized to act on the owner’s behalf.
A notice of alleged copyright infringement may be submitted to ARC’s designated copyright agent by mail or email as set forth below:
Please note that anyone who submits a false notice and materially misrepresents that content on the Site is infringing may be liable for damages, including court costs and attorneys’ fees. Upon receiving a proper notice, ARC will remove or disable access to the allegedly infringing material and promptly notify the alleged infringer of the owner’s claim. ARC also will advise the alleged infringer of the statutory counter-notification procedure described below, by which the alleged infringer may respond to the claim and request that his or her material be restored.
Anyone who believes that his or her own copyrighted material has been removed by ARC from the Site as a result of mistake or misidentification may submit a written counter-notice to ARC’s designated copyright agent. To be effective, a counter-notice must:
- identify the material that has been removed or disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled
- include a statement, under penalty of perjury, that the submitting party has a good faith belief that the material in question was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled;
- include a statement consenting to the jurisdiction of the federal district court in which the submitting party’s address is located or, if the address is outside the United States, any judicial district in which ARC may be found;
- include a statement that the submitting party will accept service of process from the party that filed the notice of alleged copyright infringement or the party’s agent;
- provide the submitting party’s name, address, and telephone number; and
- include the submitting party’s physical or electronic signature.
