What is Copyright?
In this instance, your work is automatically protected by copyright the moment you click ‘SAVE’ or ‘SUBMIT TO REVIEW’ or your work is published by the editors of the site to public access. Copyright is the law protecting intellectual property which includes online writing, books, pictures and artwork. Please be aware that copyright covers only the details of a particular work, not the general ideas, concepts, systems, or methods of doing something. You may express your ideas in writing or drawings and claim copyright in your description, but be aware that copyright will not protect the idea itself as revealed in your written or artistic work. Please consult a copyright lawyer for more details.
Reporting Copyright Infringement
If you believe that your work has been plagiarized or copied by a member of the site, please send an email to email@example.com.
Please use a valid email address and include in your email; your full name, and if possible some proof of your claim. If you do not provide this information, and if we are unable to contact you on follow-up, the notice will be nullified.
Our Legal Liability
Once your email is received and the proof verified, we will temporarily remove the implicated infringed work from public access, and contact the site author involved. This eliminates all legal liability to the administrators of our Site.
Implicated Author’s Rights
If the implicated author believes they have been mistakenly implicated, they may also send us a counter notice email with proof to support this assertion. If they do not provide this information, or our attempts to contact them fail, then the work will be permanently deleted from the Site.
A copy of the verified counter notice from an implicated author will be submitted to the sender of the original copyright infringement notice. Also, the disputed posts will be returned to public access within 15 business days unless take legal action commences.
Once we receive notice of such action, the material will be removed pending the result of the lawsuit.
If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
