It is the policy of Professional Artist Client Toolkit (“PACT”) to respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement, in compliance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and other applicable laws. This page describes how to serve a Notice of Infringing Material and what to do if any material you have placed on PACT or any affiliated website becomes the subject of such a notice.
Before serving either a Notice of Infringing Material or a Counter-Notification, you may wish to contact a lawyer to better understand your rights and obligations under the DMCA and other laws. The following notice requirements are intended to comply with PACT’s rights and obligations under the DMCA and do not constitute legal advice.
PACT’s response to these notices may include: (1) removing or disabling access to material claimed to be the subject of infringing activity; and/or (2) terminating subscribers. If we remove or disable subscriber access in response to such a notice, we will make a good-faith attempt to contact the owner of the affected site, or the uploader of the affected material or post, so that they may make a Counter-Notification. We may also document notices of alleged infringement on which we act. Your complaint will also be a matter of record. A copy of the legal notice may be sent to one or more third parties who may then make it available to the public.
You are hereby advised that you may be liable for damages if you materially misrepresent that a post, product or activity is infringing your copyrights.
If you are a copyright owner or an agent thereof and you believe that any content or link on PACT’s website infringes upon your copyrights, you may submit a notice pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") by providing our Copyright Agent the following information in writing:
PACT’s designated DMCA Copyright Agent to receive Notices of Infringing Material is:
Only DMCA notices should go to our DMCA Copyright Agent. You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements listed, your DMCA notice may not be valid.
Some PACT services do not have account holders or subscribers. For services that do, PACT will, in appropriate circumstances, terminate repeat infringers. If you believe that an account holder or subscriber is a repeat infringer, please follow the instructions above to contact PACT’s agent and provide information sufficient for us to verify that the account holder or subscriber has been determined to be in violation of the DMCA repeatedly.
In some instances a customer of one of PACT’s services who has uploaded or posted materials identified as described above may supply a counter-notification. The owner of an affected page or site on one of PACT’s services, or the provider of affected content on one of our services may make a Counter-Notification pursuant to sections 512(g)(2) and (3) of the DCMA. When we receive a Counter-Notification, we may reinstate the posts or material in question.
To file a Counter-Notification with us, you must provide a written communication (by fax or regular mail or by email) that sets forth all of the items required by the DMCA. Please note that you will be liable for damages if you materially misrepresent that content or an activity is not infringing the copyrights of others. If you are not sure whether certain material infringes the copyrights of others, we suggest that you first contact an attorney. A sample Counter-Notification may be composed using the PDF forms at ChillingEffects.org.
