Written Notification. If you believe that your content has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please notify our Copyright Agent by emailing us at email@example.com. The Daily Bit will respond to notices of alleged infringement regarding third party material sent pursuant to and in accordance with the DMCA, which may include The Daily Bit removing or disabling access to Third Party material claimed to be the subject of infringement or other activity. All notices sent to The Daily Bit regarding matters other than informing The Daily Bit that a party's copyrighted material may have been infringed as a result of third party materials will not receive a response through this process. In order to be effective, your infringement notification must include the following:
- A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
- Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or if multiple copyrighted works at a single website are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that website;
- Identification of the material (i.e., the third party materials) that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit The Daily Bit to locate the material;
- Information reasonably sufficient to permit The Daily Bit to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted;
- A statement, as follows: "I have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law"; and- A statement, as follows: "The information in this notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, I swear that I am the copyright owner or that I am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed."
Counter Notification. If you believe that your work has been removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification, please notify our Copyright Agent by emailing us at Hello@thedailybit.news. To be effective, a Counter Notification must be a written communication that includes substantially the following:
- A physical or electronic signature of the User;
- 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;
- A statement, as follows: "I swear under penalty of perjury that it is my good faith belief that the material identified above was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled"; and
- The User's name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that the User consents to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the User's address is located, or if the User's address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which The Daily Bit may be found, and that the User will accept service of process from the person who provided notification or an agent of such person.
Upon receipt of a valid Counter Notification containing the information as outlined above, the DMCA provides that the removed material will be restored or access re-enabled and The Daily Bit will comply with this requirement within a reasonable time (or as otherwise required by law), provided The Daily Bit’s Copyright Agent has not received notice from the original complaining party that an action has been filed seeking a court order to restrain User from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on The Daily Bit’s network or system.
