DCMA Policy refers to Blazon Solutions’ intellectual property rights policy in compliance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DCMA). Intellectual property rights are duly respected by Blazon Solutions and we expect the third-party entities to do the same.
In compliance with the DCMA Title 17, United States Code, Section 512(c). the copyrights claimant or their legal agent may issue a notice of takedown through our legal agent. Blazon Solutions, as an internet provision service, is entitled to make a claim of immunity from the aforementioned claim of violation of DCMA to “safe harbor” DCMA provisions. A claimant’s notice submitted against the violation of the DCMA on our behalf must contain the following elements:
- Copyright’ owner or authorized personnel’s signature in physical or digital form.
- Identification for the work which is claimed to have been infringed.
- Information on the content which is claimed to have violated DCMA. Enough information should be provided for the content to be identified and located for removal.
- Sufficient contact information to the claimant including name, contact number, valid physical and email addresses and fax details.
- A statement of good will ensuring that the claimant believes that the infringement was unintentional.
- A statement to testify that the claimant is authorized to act on behalf of the copyrights owner.
- A statement to testify that the information contained in the notification of infringement is correct and accurate.
Title 17 USC §512(f) encloses civil damage penalties, including attorney dues and other costs, against an individual who knowingly and materially misrepresents information in a notification of DCMA breach under 17 USC §512(c)(3).
