Intellectual Property Infringement
EatMakeCelebrate has adopted the following general policy toward intellectual property infringement. The address of EatMakeCelebrate’s Designated Agent to Receive Notification of Claimed Infringement (“Designated Agent”) is listed at the end of this policy. It is EatMakeCelebrate’s policy to (1) block access to or remove Content that it believes in good faith to be infringing material that has been distributed by any of its advertisers, affiliates, content providers, members or users; and (2) remove and discontinue service to repeat offenders. If you believe that Content residing on or accessible through the Sites or Services infringes your intellectual property rights, please send a notice of infringement by facsimile or regular mail (not e-mail) to [_____], Attn: Copyright Agent, [___], containing the following information:
A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the intellectual property that has been allegedly infringed;
Identification of works or materials being infringed;
Identification of the Content that is claimed to be infringing including information regarding the location of the Content that the copyright owner seeks to have removed, with sufficient detail so that EatMakeCelebrate is capable of finding and verifying its existence;
Contact information about the notifier including address, telephone number and, if available, e-mail address;
A statement that the notifier has a good faith belief that the Content is not authorized by the intellectual property owner, its agent, or the law; and
A statement made under penalty of perjury that the information provided is accurate and the notifying party is authorized to make the complaint on behalf of the copyright owner.
Once proper infringement notification is received by the Designated Agent, it is EatMakeCelebrate’s policy to remove or disable access to the infringing Content; to notify the Content provider, member or user that it has removed or disabled access to the Content; and that repeat offenders will have the infringing Content removed from the system and that EatMakeCelebrate will terminate such content provider’s, member’s or user’s access to the Services.
If you believe that your material has been removed by mistake or misidentification, please provide EatMakeCelebrate with a written counter-notification containing the following information:
Your name, address, and telephone number.
A description of the material that was removed and the location on the Site (e.g., the URL) where it previously appeared.
A statement made under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification.
A statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located, or if your address is outside of the United States, any judicial district in which EatMakeCelebrate may be found (which includes the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York), and that you will accept service of process from the person who filed the original DMCA notice or an agent of that person.
Your electronic or physical signature. Please submit this information to EatMakeCelebrate’s Designated Agent at the address listed at the end of this policy.
Please note that we will send any complete counter-notifications we receive to the person who submitted the original DMCA notice. That person may elect to file a lawsuit against you. If we do not receive notice that a lawsuit has been filed within ten (10) business days after we provide notice of your counter-notification, we will restore the removed materials. Until that time, your materials will remain removed.
Please note that under Section 512(f) of the Copyright Act, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability.
