YER Hosting has adopted the following general policy toward copyright infringement in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (https://www.copyright.gov/legislation/dmca.pdf) ("DMCA"). The address of the Designated Agent to Receive Notification of Claimed Infringement ("Designated Agent") is listed below.
Procedure for Reporting Copyright Infringement
YER Hosting responds to copyright notifications submitted under the DMCA. Section 512 of the DMCA outlines the statutory requirements necessary for formally reporting copyright infringement, as well as providing instructions on how an affected party can appeal a removal by submitting a counter-notice.
If you believe that material or content residing on or accessible through YER Hosting services infringes a copyright, please send a notice of copyright infringement containing the following information to the Designated Agent listed below:
1. Physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.
2. Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed or a representative list if multiple works are involved.
3. Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing that should be removed or access to disabled and information reasonably sufficient to enable the online service provider to locate the material (usually a URL to the relevant page).
4. Information reasonably sufficient to allow the online service provider to contact the complaining party (address, phone number, e-mail address).
5. 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."
6. Statement that the information in the notice is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.
Please contact the Designated Agent at firstname.lastname@example.org
Consequences of Sending A DMCA Notice
YER Hosting will review your notice for accuracy, validity, and completeness. If we find that it satisfies these requirements, we will forward the notice to the customer or user associated with the allegedly infringing material. If the person who posted the material believes that the notice is incorrect or that they have the right to use the material at issue, they may send a counter-notice under Section 512(g)(3) of the DMCA.
Please be aware that under 17 U.S.C. § 512(f), you may be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees incurred by us or our users, if you knowingly materially misrepresent that material or activity is infringing. So before you send a DMCA notice, make sure that you are the actual copyright holder (or are authorized to act on behalf of the owner), that you have a good-faith belief that the material you are identifying is actually infringing, and that you understand the repercussions of submitting a false claim.
Repeat Infringer Policy
Consistent with the requirements of the DMCA, YER Hosting will terminate, in appropriate circumstances, the accounts of subscribers who repeatedly infringe the copyrights of others.
