What is the DMCA?
The DMCA(Digital Millenium Copyright Act) was passed by the U.S. Congress in 1998 to deal with copyright infringement by electronic means, particularly over the Internet. StreamGuys has registered with the U.S. Copyright Office as required by this law.
Here is our agent for notification claims of infringement pursuant to section 512(c) of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act.
Notifications can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Full notification agent information is on the website of the U.S. Copyright OFfice, at http://www.copyright.gov/onlinesp/index.html
In order to expedite our ability to process the request, the following format(including section numbers) must be used. A proper notification must have at least the following information:
StreamGuys is required by law to remove or block access to customer content upon receipt of a proper notice of copyright infringement. It is also StreamGuys's policy to terminate the privileges of customers who commit repeat violations of copyright laws. StreamGuys will cooperate fully with any civil or criminal litigation arising from the violation of this policy.
If we receive a counter notification from our subscriber, we will reinstate the material in question unless we receive, during the period stated in the DMCA, notice from the Complainant that it has filed an action at the appropriate district court seeking a court order to restrain our subscriber from engaging in infringing activity.
