REPORTING CLAIMS OF COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT

Geeky Pinups honors and respects the intellectual property rights of others and, therefore, takes all allegations of copyright infringement seriously. Geeky Pinups will respond to any notice of alleged copyright infringement that complies with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) or any other applicable intellectual property statutes. The response of Geeky Pinups may include any or all of the following: removing, blocking or disabling access to allegedly material(s) and/or terminating or disabling User access to Geeky Pinups.

If you believe any material accessible on Geeky Pinups infringes your valid copyright, you may submit a copyright infringement notification (see Filing a DMCA Notice of Copyright Infringement below). Such requests should be submitted only by the copyright owner or an agent authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.

If Geeky Pinups removes or disables access to material in response to a proper DMCA Notice of Copyright Infringement, Geeky Pinups will take reasonable steps to notify the specific User who uploaded the content in question that the content has been removed or access thereto disabled so that said User has the opportunity to submit a counter notification (see Counter-Notification Procedures below). It is the policy of Geeky Pinups to document all properly served Notice of Copyright Infringement.

All Notices of Copyright Infringement and/or Counter-Notifications must be submitted in writing and must be written in English. Any attempted Notice of Copyright Infringement and/or Counter-Notice (as such terms are defined below) that is written in a foreign language or that uses foreign characters may be deemed non-compliant and disregarded, at the sole discretion of Geeky Pinups.

FILING A DMCA NOTICE OF COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT

Should you choose to request removal of content by submitting a Notice of Copyright Infringement, be aware that you are initiating a legal process. Do not make false claims. Abuse or misuse of this process may result in the legal consequences.

In accordance with the DMCA, the written DMCA Notice of Copyright Infringement must include the following:

  • Identification of the copyrighted work that you allege has been infringed or, where your claim involves multiple works, a representative list of all such works;

  • Identification of the material that you allege to be infringing in a sufficiently detailed manner in order to permit us to locate that material. If your DMCA Notice of Copyright Infringement does not contain the specific URL of the material that you allege infringes your copyright(s), Geeky Pinups may be unable to locate and remove it. General information about the material, such as a username or vague description, is inadequate. Please include the URL(s) of the precise material that you allege infringes your copyright(s);

  • Adequate information by which Geeky Pinups, as well as the User who uploaded or posted the allegedly infringing material, can contact you (including your name, mailing address, e-mail address and telephone number);

  • A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or applicable law;

  • A statement under penalty of perjury that the information in your written Notice of Copyright Infringement is accurate and that you are either the owner of the copyrighted material that allegedly is infringed or an agent authorized to act on behalf of said owner; and

  • A complete Notice of Copyright Infringement requires the physical or electronic signature of the copyright owner or of an agent authorized to act on behalf of said copyright owner.
