How to Report a Claim of Infringement?

If you believe a Strasmore client has posted material that infringes your copyright, a notification of a claimed copyright infringement must be provided via email to Strasmore and must include the following information (the list below comes substantially straight from the statute 17 U.S.C. Section 512(c)(3); if you do not understand the language please seek independent advice):

Failure to submit copyright infringement notification as described above will result in no legal notice or action on behalf of Strasmore.

How to Make a Counter Notification?

If you are a Strasmore client, i.e., subscriber, and you feel that material you have placed online that has been removed following an infringement complaint is in fact not an infringement, you may file a counter-notification. 17 U.S.C. Section 512 (g)(3) requires that to be valid, the counter-notification must be written and addressed to our agent (listed above) and must provide the following information (the list below comes straight from the statute; if you do not understand the language please seek independent advice):

Strasmore is not required to respond to counter-notifications that do not meet the requirements above. Our designated agent will present your counter-notification to the Complaining Party. Once your counter notification has been delivered, Strasmore is allowed under the provisions of 17 U.S.C. Section 512 to restore the removed material in no less than 10, nor more than 14, business days, unless the Complaining Party notifies us that it has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain you, the subscriber, from engaging in infringing activity related to the material on Strasmore's system or network.

Misrepresentations

Any person who knowingly materially misrepresents under this section:

shall be liable for any damages, including costs and attorney's fees, incurred by the alleged infringer, by any copyright owner or copyright owner's authorized licensee, or by Strasmore, who is injured by such misrepresentation, as the result of Strasmore relaying upon such misrepresentations in removing or ceasing to disable access to it.
