We try to be as compliant to the DMCA as we can. This is a community forum, meaning that all content here is submitted by users and we can't monitor every single thread created. We try to make the process simple for submitted requests for both the claimer and on ourselves. Once we investigate your notice and the urls given, and find that the threads are actually infringing your copyrighted content, we will swiftly takedown those urls, disabling public access to them and they will return a 404 Not Found error. If the urls you are giving don't actually contain any content of your original works, then we'd try to help and point you in the right direction of where the content you're wanting taken down may actually be. We don't allow hosting and disrupting content from our server that is copyrighted. We strictly prohibit storing any copyrighted content on our server. Again, we repeat, NO COPYRIGHTED CONTENT IS EVER HOSTED ON OUR SERVER! We don't consider a link to another external website, which we (CG) are not affiliated with, as us hosting the content as we are not housing or transmitting that data. Instead, we can provide the abuse/dmca/takedown request email address of that website if you don't already have contact with them. We require you to confirm the content so that you can have "good faith" that the content is infringing. Just because it has a picture with a title doesn't mean it contains the content you think it does. If we find the thread has a dead link, invalid link, extremely old and doesn't have a valid link, we will be forced to believe you didn't confirm that the content truly has any infringing content and will ask you to confirm the content. You must provide at a minimum: A physical or electronic signature (i.e., /s/NAME) of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright that is allegedly infringed. Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed. (Usually a URL to infringing page, and the original works page; so 2 URLs) Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing and information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to locate the material. (Describe the works, please don't be vague) 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. (Your email must be a valid working email, and we expect responses within 24- 48 hours; otherwise if we don't receive a reply you'll be placed on the invalid DMCA takedown list) 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. 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 the copyright that is allegedly infringed. Be prepared for a follow up email from us. Double check your email address is valid and keep an eye out for our response. We will do one of the following Confirm the notice was received and taken care of (Links disabled and taken down from public view. Returning a 404 Not Found error.) Ask Question(s) regarding the notice Or we found that the URLs submitted weren't infringing your Original works content and ask you to confirm again as we believe you may have mistaken the thread as a clone of your work.
