The DMCA requires that an Online Service Provider (OSP) act first and ask questions later.
As an OSP, if a complaint about possible copyright infringement is received DATAYARD must expeditiously remove the material or disable public access to the site.
If the DATAYARD subscriber whose material has been removed or disabled files a proper “counter notice” attesting to its lawful use of the material then DATAYARD, as the OSP, must notify the copyright owner and restore the material within 14 business days.
DATAYARD abides by the rules and regulations established in the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA). For more specific information regarding the DMCA, including notice and counter notice requirements, please visit the U.S. Copyright Office web page on the matter.
To register a complaint regarding possible copyright infringement you will need to provide, at a minimum, the following required information.
Send the complaint to the representative appointed by DATAYARD to process such claims. In accordance with the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (1998), Title II, subsection 512(c), the DATAYARD contact agent for issues regarding possible copyright infringement is:
