Please also note that under Section 512(f) any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability.
If you would like to contest a claim of copyright infringement that has resulted in the removal of your material from the Sutros website, you may submit a counter notice to us and we will forward it to the original claimant. Please note that filing a counter notice reveals your personal information and may lead to legal proceedings between you and the claiming party. Once the claimant receives your counter-notification, he or she must file an action seeking a court order to restrain you from engaging in infringing activity in 10 to 14 business days. We will be unable to restore the material if we receive such notification.
Also, please be advised that according to Section 512(f) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability. It is our policy to terminate the accounts of recurrent infringers and false claimants. With deference to the findings of the Honorable Judge Learned Hand, if you are uncertain whether you have contributed material that infringes the copyrights of others, we suggest that you first review the copyright provisions and contact an attorney.
1. Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled. Please include the specific URLs.
2. Your name, address, telephone number, email address and username of your Sutros account.
3. A statement of your consent to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the address is located, or San Francisco County, California if your address is outside of the United States, that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification under subsection (c)(1)(C) or an agent of such person.
4. The following statement: "I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled."
