Procedure for Submitting a Counter-Notice Pursuant to the DMCA

If one of your listings is removed due to a rights owner complaint of copyright infringement under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), and you believe the content referenced in the complaint is not infringing, you may provide a written counter-notice to our Copyright Agent.

The counter-notice must include the following information:

  1. Identify the material that was removed or disabled, and the location where it appeared before it was removed or disabled
  2. A statement by you declaring under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material at issue was either misidentified or mistakenly removed
  3. Your name, address and telephone number
  4. A statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal district court for the judicial district in which your address is located, and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided the complaint set forth above (if you are located outside of the United States, you must state that you consent to the jurisdiction of any United States federal district court in which we may be found)
  5. Your physical or electronic signature

Please be aware that false statements in your written counter-notice may lead to civil or criminal penalties.
