For your complaint to be valid under the DMCA, you must provide all of the following information when providing notice of the claimed copyright infringement:

1. A description of the copyrighted work you claim to have been infringed. If you are not the owner of the copyrighted work, you must also include your electronic or digital signature as a person authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner;

2. A description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on our Web site;

3. Information reasonably sufficient to permit IMS to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and if available, an electronic mail address at which you may be contacted;

4. A statement that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use of the material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and

5. A statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the information in your notification is accurate, and that you are the copyright owner or are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.

IMPORTANT: Misrepresentations made in your notice about whether material or activity on the Web site is infringing your copyright may expose you to liability for damages (including costs and attorneys' fees) under Section 512(f) of the DMCA. Courts have found that you must consider copyright defenses, limitations, and/or exceptions before sending a notice.

Please note that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements of Section 512(c)(3) of the DMCA, your DMCA Notice may not be effective and we will not process it.

Counter Notification

To be effective, a Counter Notification must be a written communication provided to IMS’ Designated Agent that includes substantially the following:

1. A physical or electronic signature of the Subscriber;

2. 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;

3. A statement under penalty of perjury that the Subscriber has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled;

4. The Subscriber's name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that the Subscriber consents to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the address is located, or if the Subscriber's address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which the Service Provider may be found, and that the Subscriber will accept service of process from the person who provided notification or an agent of such person.

The DMCA allows us to restore the removed content if the party filing the original DMCA Notice does not file a court action against you within ten business days of receiving the copy of your Counter-Notice.

IMPORTANT: If you knowingly materially misrepresent that material or activity on the Web site was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification, you may be held liable for damages (including costs and attorneys' fees) under Section 512(f) of the DMCA.
