Copyright Infringement Notice

If you think someone is infringing your copyrighted content on the Duntap platform, under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (“DMCA”), you can contact us and send us a take down notice for that content. Before you send us a take down notice, be sure that it has all of the elements listed below, or your complaint will not be considered to be complete. We are not required to take action on incomplete DMCA notices.

Your complaint must have all of the following:

  1. A physical or electronic signature (typing your full name will suffice) of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed (“Complainant”);
  2. Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (e.g., a link to your original work), or, if multiple infringed works at a single online website are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that website;
  3. Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit Duntap to locate the material (e.g., a link to your original work);
  4. Information reasonably sufficient to permit Duntap to contact the Complainant, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the Complainant may be contacted;
  5. A statement that the Complainant has a good faith belief that use of the
    material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the intellectual
    property owner, its agent, or the law; and
  6. A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the Complainant is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
