Copyright Infringement General Information
The United States Congress enacted The Digital Millennium Copyright Act, more commonly referred to as the DMCA, which was signed into law on October 28, 1998. The DMCA had as its primary purpose the goal of updating United States copyright laws with an eye toward making them more relevant and flexible given the ever changing digital information climate.
17 U.S.C. § 512(c) limits the liability of service providers for infringing material on web sites hosted on their systems. Service Providers are eligible for the limitation on liability when they do not have actual knowledge of ongoing copyright infringement, are not aware of facts or circumstances surrounding ongoing copyright infringement, or upon gaining such knowledge the Service Provider responds expeditiously to take the material down or block access to it.
§ 512(c) establishes the procedures for proper notification to a Service Provider should you feel that your copyrighted material has been misappropriated and there is ongoing copyright infringement by someone using our services. Under these so-called notice and takedown procedures a copyright owner submits a notification under penalty of perjury, including a list of specified elements, to our designated agent. Failure to comply with the statutory requirements means that the notification is defective. If, upon receiving a proper notification, the service provider promptly removes or blocks access to the material identified in the notification, the provider is exempt from monetary liability.
If you believe that GlowHost is hosting copyrighted material, please submit your formal DMCA take down notice as outlined in the section above.
