|The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998|
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 addresses the remedies available to copyright owners who believe that their proprietary rights have been infringed on an Internet site accessed through a host Internet service provider. Under the Act, a copyright owner claiming unauthorized online use of protected works is required to provide specific notice of such claim to the Designated Agent of the host and request that the infringing material is removed or that access to the material be blocked.
If you believe in good faith that Fastwyre should be notified of a potential online copyright infringement occurring on a Fastwyre Subscriber’s Website or Personal Webpage, please promptly inform Fastwyre at:
To be effective under the Act, your notification to Fastwyre’s Designated Agent must be made in writing or by e-mail and must include the following:
Upon receiving proper notification of an alleged copyright infringement involving the posted material, we will review your claim and take appropriate action in accordance with our Acceptable Use Policy.
If you have received notice from us of a claim of infringement made in relation to materials you placed on the Internet and you believe in good faith that such claim has been wrongly made against you by the claiming party, you may submit a counter-notice to bring about a private dispute between you and the party claiming copyright infringement. You should provide your counter-notification to the following:
Before you provide us with counter-notification denying an Infringement claim, you should carefully review your statement to ensure that it is accurate and made in good faith. Challenges to claims of infringement must be substantiated in court to withstand the claims by the copyright owner.
Please note: Do not send any other notices, including notifications of account termination, service complaints, or any other communications, to the Designated Agent. The Designated Agent is appointed solely for the purpose of receiving and reviewing claims of online copyright infringement made pursuant to the Digital Millenium Copyright Act of 1998.
