Removal in Error-Counter Notice
If your Content was removed through the procedure described above, and you believe that it was removed in error, we suggest that you first try to contact the rights owner directly. If the rights owner agrees that a mistake was made, ask the rights owner to email us and we will allow you to resubmit your Content.
You may have the option of filing a Counter Notice with us if you feel that your Content was removed in error and you have not been able to come to an agreement with the rights owner. A Counter Notice is a form we provide in compliance with the requirements of the federal law known as the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. The form is a legal document that requires you to certify under penalty of perjury that your Content was not infringing and was removed by mistake. Please read this form carefully, so you fully understand what you agree to if you choose to submit it to us.
If you are interested in filing a Counter Notice, please email us at the address given, and provide us with the additional information regarding your appeal. Once a valid Counter Notice is submitted, we will provide a copy of the notice to the reporting party and will advise them that the Content will be reinstated after 10 business days if we do not hear from the reporting party that it has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain you from re-posting the Content.
