Digital Millennium Copyright Act ('DMCA') Policy
It is Exponential-e’s policy to respond to proper claims of copyright infringement.
Exponential-e will take appropriate actions pursuant to the DMCA and other applicable intellectual property laws. If you are a copyright owner or an agent thereof and believe that any content posted on Exponential-e’s network infringes a bona fide copyright you own, you should substantiate such claim by submitting a notification pursuant to the DMCA to email@example.com with all of the following information:
The signed notification should be sent by email or post to:
If you have received a notice of material being taken down because of a copyright infringement claim, you may provide Exponential-e with a counter-notification in an effort to have the material in question restored to the site. The notification must be given in writing to Exponential-e and must contain substantially the following elements:
Upon receiving a proper counter-notice, Exponential-e will promptly provide the copyright owner with a copy of the Counter Notification and advise such party that it will take reasonable steps to restore or cease disabling access to the material within ten (10) to fourteen (14) working days unless the copyright owner commences court proceedings to prevent the restoration of such alleged infringing material and Exponential-e is informed of such proceedings.
Exponential-e reserves the right, without notice, to modify the contents of this page and its policy for handling DMCA claims at any time for any reason.
Upon receipt of an appropriate and complying notification from a copyright owner, as set forth above, Exponential-e will initiate an investigation and forward the copyright owner's written notification to the alleged infringer. While Exponential-e is investigating the claim, Exponential-e, at its sole discretion and without any legal obligation to do so, may notify the alleged infringer it will temporarily remove, disable or deny access to the allegedly infringing material. Pursuant to the DMCA, and in order to ensure that copyright owners do not wrongly insist on the removal of material that actually does not infringe their copyright rights, the DMCA safe harbor provisions require service providers such as Exponential-e to notify a subscriber if its material has been removed or disabled and to provide the subscriber with an opportunity to send a written notice to the service provider stating that the material has been wrongly removed. Accordingly, Exponential-e may share the identity and information in any copyright infringement claim it receives with the alleged infringer. In submitting a claim, you understand, accept and agree that your identity and claim may be communicated to the alleged infringer.
Please note that if you are found to have materially misrepresented your claim regarding such infringing copyright material, you may be liable for damages (including costs and legal fees). We therefore recommend that you seek independent legal advice if you are unsure as to whether the material available online infringes your copyright.
