Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) Policy
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) provides a mechanism for notifying service providers of claims of unauthorized use of copyrighted materials. Under the DMCA, a claim must be sent to the service provider’s Designated Agent. Email is not an accepted form of communication as delivery origins can be spoofed and altered. If you believe in good faith that Volico should be notified of a possible online copyright infringement involving a member of Volico’s client base, please notify our Designated Agent by postal mail or delivery courier:
Volico strongly protects and respects its own intellectual property rights and those of third parties. As an Online Service Provider under the terms of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998, Volico has adopted a formal procedure as described in this policy to manage any claimed copyright violations involving materials made available on the Volico.com website.
Only the copyright owner or someone specifically authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner may submit a DMCA notice under the DMCA. If you are the copyright owner or so authorized to act on the owner’s behalf, you may submit a DMCA Takedown Notice with respect to any material that you believe has been posted on this website without your consent. In order to be effective such a notice should contain all of the following:
Documentation of the material 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 service provider to locate the material.
Documentation of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site.
A physical or electronic signature of a person certified to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
Information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider 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.
The copyright owner, its agent, or the law does not authorize a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of.
A statement that the information in the notification is precise, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
In the event that materials are taken down as the result of a valid DMCA takedown notice, the original poster of the material may submit a counter notice and a request that the material be re-posted. A valid counter notice under the DMCA will contain the following information:
• A physical or electronic signature of the subscriber.
• An 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 under penalty of perjury that the subscriber has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.
• The subscriber’s name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that the subscriber consents to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the address is located, or if the subscriber’s address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which the service provider may be found, and that the subscriber will accept service of process from the person who provided notification under subsection (c)(1)(C) or an agent of such person.
• Upon any re-posting of the information, the person submitting the initial take down notice may notify us that relief has been sought in the form of a court action seeking an order restraining the infringing activity at which time the information will be taken down pending a decision by that court.
All notices should be submitted in electronic form to: [email protected]
