Copyright Claims – Digital Millenium Copyright Act
It is The People’s Science’s policy to respond to notices of alleged infringement that comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”). In addition, The People’s Science will promptly terminate without notice the accounts of users that are determined by The People’s Science to be “repeat infringers.” A repeat infringer is a user who has been notified by The People’s Science of infringing activity violations more than twice and/or who has had User Content removed from this website more than twice.

Copyright owners who believe that any content on the Site and/or Services infringes upon their copyrights are encouraged to submit a notification pursuant to the DMCA. Said notification should be sent to The People’s Science’s Designated Copyright Agent (as identified, below) and include the following in writing:

 

  • 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 on the applicable site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works on the applicable 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 People’s Science to locate the material;
  • Information reasonably sufficient to permit The People’s Science 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 (for example, “I am under the good faith belief that the use of the copyrighted content that is identified herein 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 (for example, “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in this notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner, or authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner, of the copyright(s) that is allegedly infringed by the aforementioned content.”).

A copyright owner acknowledges that if he or she fails to comply with all of the requirements of this section, his or her DMCA notice may not be valid. Please note that under Section 512(f) of the DMCA, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability.
