What We Do When We Receive A
Proper DMCA Notice
Plunder will follow the procedures provided in the DCMA, which prescribed a notice
and takedown procedure, subject to the webmaster’s right to submit a Counter-notification
claiming lawful use of the disabled works.
Notice and Takedown Procedure
It is expected that all users of any part of the Plunder system will comply with
applicable copyright laws. However, if Plunder is notified of claimed copyright
infringement, or otherwise becomes aware of facts and circumstances from which infringement
is apparent, it will respond expeditiously by removing, or disabling access to,
the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing
activity. Plunder will comply with the appropriate provisions of the DMCA in the
event a counter notification is received by its Designated Agent.
Notice to Users of Plunder Systems
Pursuant to the Terms of Service Agreement you agreed to when you were permitted
to become a System User, you are required to use only lawfully-acquired creative
works as website content, and your website may be disabled upon receipt of notice
that infringing material is appearing there. Plunder also respects the legitimate
interests of webmasters in utilizing media content lawfully, being permitted to
present a response to claims of infringement, and obtaining timely restoration of
access to a website that has been disabled due to a copyright complaint.
Your System Use privileges will also be suspended. You may protest a DMCA notice
by submitting a Counter-notification as described below.
Writing and Submitting a Counter-notification
If access to your website is disabled due to operation of the Plunder notice and
takedown procedure described above, and you believe the takedown was improper, you
must submit a Counter-notification.
To write a proper counter-notification, please provide the following information:
- State that access to your website was disabled due to operation of the notice and
- Identify the material that has been removed and designate its URL prior to removal.
- State, under penalty of perjury:
- Your name, address, and telephone number,
- That you “have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as
result of mistake or misidentification of the material,"
- That you “consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial
district in which the address is located."
To exercise your DMCA rights, you must send your Counter-notification to the “Designated
Agent” for Plunder, whose contact information is:
Plunder may, in its discretion, use all appropriate means to terminate user access
to its system or network who are repeat infringers.
