What if someone files a claim against my creation?
If you receive notice that one of your creations is in violation of copyright and you believe that to be untrue you have the right to submit a counter-claim.
For your reference, a counter-notice must include:
- Your electronic or physical signature;
- 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 you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled; and
- Your name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the address is located, or if the address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which Visual Supply’s service may be found, and that you will accept service of process from the person who made the claim of infringement.
Upon receipt of a valid counter-notice, we will promptly notify the person who made the claim of infringement and provide them with a copy of your counter-notice. This will include your contact information which you consent to us providing to the person who made the claim of infringement.
Thereafter, the person who made the claim of infringement will have no less than 10 but no more than 14 days to provide us with notice that they are seeking a court order to restrain you from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material(s) on our service.
