AARE Copyright Dispute Policy

AARE adheres to the terms of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the “DMCA”), as it relates to online service providers, and will remove material that allegedly violates someone’s copyright. To learn more about the DMCA.

In accordance with the DMCA, we adopted the following policy toward copyright infringement. We reserve the right to (1) block access to or remove material, and/or (2) remove and discontinue service to repeat offenders, if there is a good faith belief certain allegedly copyrighted material has been illegally copied and/or distributed by any of our advertisers, affiliates, content providers, members or users.

Remember that your use of Company’s Services is at all times subject to the Website’s Terms of Conditions and Use, which incorporates this Copyright Dispute Policy. Any terms we use in this Copyright Dispute Policy without defining them have the definitions given to them as set for in the Website’s Terms of Conditions and Use.

(1) Procedure for Reporting Copyright Infringements. If you believe that material or content residing on or accessible through the Services infringes your copyright (or the copyright of someone whom you are authorized to act on behalf of), please send a notice of copyright infringement containing the following information to the Company’s Designated Copyright Infringement Agent (our “Designated Agent”), listed below:

(a) A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright that has been allegedly infringed;

(b) Identification of works or materials that have or are currently being infringed;

(c) Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing, including information regarding the location of the infringing materials that the copyright owner seeks to have removed, with sufficient detail so that Company is capable of finding and verifying its existence;

(d) Contact information about the notifying party, including address, telephone number and, if available, email address;

(e) A statement that the notifying party has a good faith belief that the material identified in (1)(c) is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and

(f) A statement made under penalty of perjury that the information provided is accurate and the notifying party is authorized to make the complaint on behalf of the copyright owner.

(2) Once Proper Bona Fide Notification of Infringement is Received by the Designated Agent. Upon receipt of a proper notice of copyright infringement, we reserve the right to remove or disable access to the infringing material, notify the content provider that allegedly infringing material has been removed or disabled from access on the Website, and/or terminate such content provider’s access to the Services if he or she is a repeat offender.

(3) Procedure to Supply a Counter-Notice to the Designated Agent. If the content provider believes that the material that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or the content provider believes that he or she has the right to post and use such material from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or, pursuant to the law, the content provider must send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Designated Agent listed below:

(a) A physical or electronic signature of the content provider;

(b) Identification of works or materials that have been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled;

(c) A statement that the content provider has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the material; and

(d) The content provider’s name, address, telephone number, and, if available, e-mail address and a statement that such person or entity consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal Court for the judicial district in which the content provider’s address is located, or if the content provider’s address is located outside the United States, for any judicial district in which Company is located, and that such person or entity will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.

If a counter-notice is received by the Designated Agent, Company may, in its discretion, send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that Company may replace the removed material or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider accused of committing infringement, the removed material may be replaced or access to it restored in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at Company’s discretion.
