Webconn honors complaints of alleged copyright infringement as per the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). Our policies and guidelines related to compliance with the DMCA are included below.
Complaints must be filed by email to admin -AT- Webconn.com.
Regardless of how they are submitted, all complaints must include the following: a sufficient amount of contact information (including a working phone number), reasonably sufficient and specific information about the alleged violation, and correct formatting per DMCA requirements (detailed below).
The notice specified below is consistent with the form suggested by the United States Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the full text of which can be found here: www.copyright.gov).
If you wish to file a complaint with us regarding infringement, please note that you are liable if you misrepresent any product or activity infringing upon your copyright(s). If you are not sure whether the material available online infringes your copyright, we strongly suggest that you consult an attorney before filing a complaint.
To ensure that we process your request as quickly as possible, include all of the following:
- Identification of the material claimed to be infringing and information sufficient to permit us to locate the material. Providing URLs in the body of an email is the best way to help us find content quickly. It is not sufficient to state “all infringing material.” The DMCA requires your notices to include all infringing material URLs.
- Information to permit us to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which you may be contacted. You may not present an anonymous DMCA complaint.
- Your complaint must include the following statement: “I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials described above as allegedly infringing is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.”
- Your complaint must also include the following statement: “The information in the notification is accurate and that, under the penalty of perjury, I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.”
- Sign the document.
Notices and Counter-claims
Webconn may document the cases of copyright infringement upon which we act. As with all legal notices, a copy of the notice will be made available to the public and/or sent to third parties who may make it available.
The safe harbor provisions of DMCA require that we notify subscribers if their materials have been removed due to an alleged copyright infringement. These provisions also need us to allow the subscribers to send a written notice stating that their material has been wrongly removed.
If a subscriber does indeed provide a proper “counter-notice” to the initial claim, we will follow the counter-notice provisions of the DMCA.
