Copyright and Content Policy

It is our policy to respect the legitimate rights of copyright and other intellectual property owners and we have adopted the following general policy toward copyright infringement in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

We have designated an agent (specified below) to receive notifications of claimed copyright infringement on our site. Please be advised that we enforce a policy that provides for the termination in appropriate circumstances of subscribers who are repeat infringers.

If you are a copyright owner, or are authorized to act on behalf of one, and you believe in good faith that any material or content made available on or through our site has been used or exploited in a manner that infringes or violates any work or other intellectual property you own or control, please report the alleged copyright infringements taking place by completing the following DMCA Notice of Alleged Infringement (“Notice”) and delivering it to 42 Media Group’s Designated Copyright Agent (“Agent”) as set forth below.

Please provide our Agent with the following information:

  • an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright or other intellectual property interest;
  • a description of the copyrighted work or other intellectual property that you claim has been infringed;
  • a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on our site, with enough detail that we may find it on our site; providing URLs in the body of an email is the best way to help us locate content quickly;
  • your address, telephone number, and email address;
  • a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright or intellectual property owner, its agent, or the law; and
  • a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your Notice is accurate and that you are the copyright or intellectual property owner or authorized to act on the copyright or intellectual property owner’s behalf.

Our Agent for notice of claims of copyright or other intellectual property infringement can be reached or at the mailing address at the end of these Terms.

Once such Notice of infringement is properly received by the Agent, it is our policy:

  • to remove or disable access to the infringing material;
  • to notify the content provider, member or user that we have removed or disabled access to the material; and
  • that repeat offenders will have the infringing material removed from the system and that we will terminate such content provider’s, member’s or user’s access to the service.


If you believe that the material you posted was removed by mistake, you may elect to send us a counter notice (“Counter Notice”). To be effective, the Counter Notification must be a written communication provided to our Agent that includes substantially the following:

  • A physical or electronic signature of the person providing the Counter Notification or of the person authorized to act on their behalf.
  • Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled. Providing URLs in the body of an email is the best way to help us locate content quickly.
  • A statement under penalty of perjury that such person has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.
  • Such person’s name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that the such person consents to the jurisdiction for any judicial district in which the service provider may be found, and that such person will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of infringement or an agent of such person.

Please note that when you provide us a Notice or a Counter Notice, we are relying on the information that you have provided us. Any person who knowingly misrepresents that the material or activity is infringing, shall be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees, incurred to the alleged infringer, to any copyright owner, copyright owner’s authorized licensee or to 42 Media Group, who is injured by such misrepresentation.

Please remember that there are legal and financial consequences for fraudulent or bad faith submissions. Before submitting a Notice or a Counter Notice, be sure that you are the actual rights’ holder of the content or that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed in error and understand the repercussions of submitting a false claim.
