Digital Millennium Copyright Act Policy
Notice and Takedown Procedure
It is Rasmus’s policy to respond to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with the United States Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”). This policy describes the information that should be present in these notices.
Rasmus expects that all of its bidders and affiliates will comply with applicable copyright laws. However, if Rasmus receives appropriate notice of claimed copyright infringement, Rasmus will work to remove or disable access to the material in question and take other appropriate action regardless of whether Rasmus might be liable for such infringement.
If Rasmus removes or disables access to material in response to an infringement notice, Rasmus will make a good-faith attempt to contact the party that posted the material at issue so that such party may take its own action under Sections 512(g)(2) and (3) of the DMCA. Rasmus may also document any notice of alleged infringement.
Rasmus’s Designated Agent to receive notification of alleged infringement under the DMCA is:
201 Yoakum Parkway
Alexandria, VA 22304
When Rasmus receives a proper notice of alleged infringement, Rasmus will take action as outlined in this policy and in the DMCA.
If you believe that your intellectual property rights have been violated in connection with material posted on one of Rasmus’s websites, please provide Rasmus’s Registered Agent with the following information, preferably by e-mail:
- Identification of the copyrighted material associated with the rights you believe have been infringed;
2. Identification of the material on Rasmus’s website that you believe infringes on your intellectual property rights;
3. Your contact information, including an address, telephone number, and email address at which you can be contacted;
4. These statements:
a. “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”;
b. “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate, and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed”; and
5. A signature of the owner or a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an intellectual property right that is allegedly infringed.
IMPORTANT: you may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) if you materially misrepresent that material is infringing your copyrights. If you are uncertain about whether material available on Rasmus’s websites interferes with your intellectual property rights, Rasmus strongly suggests that you contact an attorney before communicating with Rasmus.
Pursuant to Section 512(i)(1)(a) of the DMCA, Rasmus will, when necessary, disable and/or delete the accounts of repeat infringers.
