Copyright

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) provides a notice and takedown framework for potential copyright infringements. This framework allows copyright owners to bring a notification of claimed infringement for any potentially infringing works that may be hosted or located on Respect Your Artist.

Respect Your Artist acts expeditiously to remove such works.

If a creator on this platform has potentially misused your copyrighted work, please submit a notification of claimed infringement following the instructions given below. Be sure to conform to the applicable notification provisions of section 512 of the Copyright Act.

If a creator on this platform has potentially misused your copyrighted work, please submit a notification of claimed infringement following the instructions given below. Be sure to conform to the applicable notification provisions of section 512 of the Copyright Act. If you have received a notification of claimed infringement on your Respect Your Artist page, you have the option of removing the work or bringing a counter-notification by following the instructions given below. Be sure to conform to the applicable counter notification provisions of section 512(g)(3) of the Copyright Act. All notifications of claimed infringement can either be mailed or emailed at Respect Your Artist’s designated DMCA agent at: Email: copyright@respectyourartist.com

How do I send a DMCA notification of claimed infringement?

If you believe that a creator on Respect Your Artist is infringing on your copyright, please send a notification of claimed infringement to copyright@respectyourartist.com to have the work removed. This notification must comply with the requirements of section 512 of the Copyright Act.

Here is our suggested template to use when submitting a notification of claimed infringement:

  1. This personal information:
    • Your name
    • Your address
    • Your telephone number
    • Your email address
  2. Identify the original copyrighted work that you claim is being infringed. If multiple works are being infringed, then please list all of the original works applicable
  3. Identify the infringing work(s). Include the URL of the creator’s page, as well as any other relevant URLs or information necessary to identify or locate the potentially infringing work(s).
  4. Read, understand and include this statement: I have a good faith belief that the material I am reporting is not authorized by the copyright owner, an agent of the owner, or the law. The information in this notice is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, I am authorized on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
  5. Your physical or electronic signature.

    Please note: The DMCA, as a legal document, does require that you provide personal information. It is standard for websites to post such legal documents online or share such documents with the claimed infringer. This is like posting a summons or subpoena on a door. As a result your personal information may be publicly shared in this process.

What happens when I receive a DMCA notification of claimed infringement?

When Respect Your Artist receives a notification of claimed infringement pursuant the DMCA, we check for two things:

  1. Is the notification sufficient?
  2. Is the notification made in good faith?

The first check is to make sure that it complies with the requirements of section 512 of the Copyright Act and that the information appears to be correct, such as that the person sending the notification is actually authorized to send it.

The second check is to make sure that the alleged infringement passes the common sense test. We don’t stop all potentially bad faith claims here, because we are held liable if we refuse to take content down, but we try our best to make sure that bad faith claims don’t harm creators.

If you receive a notification, we have already gone through this review and determined that it is at least a valid claim and appears to have been made in good faith.

At this point you have 48 hours from when we emailed you until we remove the content or your page to comply with the DMCA.

If you wish to dispute this notification of claimed infringement, you can send us a valid counter-notification. For a counter-notification to be valid it must comply with the applicable counter-notification provisions of section 512(g)(3) of the Copyright Act.

We will forward this counter-notification to the original sender of the notification. If the original sender wishes to keep your content removed then the next step for them is to sue in federal court. We strongly advise that you speak with an attorney before taking this step. We can refer you to an attorney with a guaranteed flat rate of $350 for an initial review.

To send a counter-notice we suggest you follow this template:

  1. Your personal information:
    • Your name
    • Your address
    • Your telephone number
  2. In your own words identify the content that was removed and include the URL of your page. If the work was located somewhere other than your creator home page, then please specify where it was located.
  3. Read, understand and include this statement:

    Under penalty of perjury I have a good faith belief that the material was removed as a result of mistake or misidentification. I consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which my address is located. If my address is outside of the United States, I consent to the jurisdiction of for any judicial district in which Respect Your Artist may be found. I will accept service of process from the person who sent the original takedown notice, or an agent of that person.

  4. Your physical or electronic signature.

    Please note that if we receive multiple DMCA notices for your page that we may ban you from using Respect Your Artist as part of our repeat infringer policy. Any notices you send a counter-notice for will not be counted against you in our repeat infringer policy.
