Policy and Procedure for Making Claims of Copyright Infringement
Under the United States Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA)

Notice of Claimed Copyright Infringement Directed to our Designated Agent

Our Terms of Use require that all users of the FDRS Website comply with applicable copyright laws.  Content that infringes copyrights or that links to infringing content, or advertising that markets products or services that enable copyright infringement by illegally circumventing copyright protection, is prohibited on the FDRS Website. 

However, if FDRS receives proper notification of a claimed copyright infringement, our response to these notices will include removing or disabling access to the content claimed to be infringing and/or terminating the user who posted that content, regardless of whether we may be liable for such infringement under U.S. law or the laws of another jurisdiction.  It is FDRS’ policy expeditiously to respond to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with the United States DMCA. 

This page is designed to make submitting notices of alleged copyright infringement as straightforward as possible and sets forth the procedure for submitting a notice of alleged copyright infringement directed to our Designated Agent.  If you believe your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please submit a notice to our Designated Agent.

If we remove or disable access to content, and/or terminating the user who posted that content, in response to such a notice, we will make a good-faith attempt to contact the user who posted the affected content, or the owner or administrator of the affected site or content, so that they may make a counter notification pursuant to Sections 512(g)(2) and (3) of the DMCA. We may also document notices of alleged infringement on which we act.
