Copyright Infringement Notice.
To be effective, the DMCA notification must include the following:
An electronic or physical signature of the copyright owner or the person authorized to act on its behalf;
A description of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed;
A description of the location of the infringing material and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material;
Your contact information, including your address, telephone number, and email address;
A statement by you that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and, under the penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner. (This means that you are the owner, or you have written authorization from the copyright owner.)
Please note that under Section 512(f) of the Copyright Act, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to large civil penalties and damages incurred by us, any copyright owner, or any copyright owner’s licensee. You may also be subject to criminal prosecution for perjury. Please also note that the information provided in the above legal notice may be forwarded to the person who provided the allegedly infringing content and we may choose to publish Claimant information in place of disabled Content.

(Can click here and then goes to next section to reduce length of your Terms.)
Counter Notice Under the DMCA. When we receive a notification of alleged copyright infringement, we remove the Submission or Content that is the subject of the notification. If you believe your content was misidentified as infringing, you may file a counter-notification. If you did not have all of the rights to post the material at issue, you MUST NOT submit a counter-notification. Under Section 512(f) of the Copyright Act, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be liable for damages. If the original claim of alleged infringement was submitted under Section 512(c) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, you must use the DMCA counter-notification. The process for counter-notifications is governed by Section 512(g) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act:http://www.copyright.gov/legislation/dmca.pdf. Accordingly, if you are not sure whether certain material infringes the copyrights of others, we suggest that you first contact an attorney. You must send the Counter Notice to our designated agent for receiving notices of infringement, whose name and contact information is under the DMCA notice above.
A counter-notification must include the following specific elements:
Identification of the specific URLs of material that our Site has removed or to which our Site has disabled access.
Your full name, address, telephone number, and email address, and the username of your Account.
The statement: “I consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court in which the address is located, or if the user’s address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which Company is located, and will accept service of process from the claimant.”
The 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.”
Signature. A scanned physical signature or a valid electronic signature will be accepted.
Submission. We can only accept a counter-notification directly from the user from whose account a video has been disabled. For verification, we require that Counter Notice be submitted from the email address associated with the account.
Process: What happens next? After we receive your counter-notification, we will forward it to the party who submitted the original claim of copyright infringement. Please note that when we forward the counter-notification, it includes your personal information. By submitting a counter-notification, you consent to have your information revealed in this way. We will not forward the counter-notification to any party other than the original claimant. After we send out the counter-notification, the claimant must then notify us within 10 business days that he or she has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain you from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on our Site. If we receive such notification we will be unable to restore the material. If we do not receive such notification, we may reinstate the material.
