Teechanel™ Intellectual Property Claim Process

A. Reporting Procedure for Intellectual Property Infringement:

Teechanel™ is committed to respecting the intellectual property rights of others. Our policy includes (1) blocking access to or removing content (including text, graphics, photos, etc., collectively referred to as “Content”) that we believe in good faith infringes upon the intellectual property rights of third parties upon receiving a compliant notice, and (2) discontinuing service for repeat infringers.

If you believe that Content on our website infringes upon your copyright or other intellectual property rights, please send a notice of infringement containing the following information to our Designated Agent:

  1. Identification of Infringed Work: Detail the copyrighted work or other intellectual property that you believe has been infringed, including any registration number(s), if applicable.

  2. Location of Infringing Content: Describe the Content that you claim is infringing, including a description of how the Content is using the intellectual property in an infringing way, and its location on our website with enough detail to allow verification.

  3. Your Contact Information: Provide your full name, mailing address, telephone number, and email address.

  4. Good Faith Belief Statement: A statement declaring your good faith belief that the disputed use of the Content is unauthorized by the copyright holder, its agents, or the law.

  5. Accuracy Statement: A statement, made under penalty of perjury, that the information in your notice is accurate, and that you are either the rights holder or authorized to act on behalf of the rights holder.

  6. Signature: Your electronic or physical signature.

B. Response to Bona Fide Infringement Notification:

Upon receipt of a valid infringement notification, Teechanel™’s policy is to remove or disable access to the allegedly infringing Content.

C. Counter-Notice Procedure:

If we believe that the removed Content was not infringing, or we have the right to use the Content, we may send a counter-notice with the following information to the Designated Agent:

  1. Identification of Removed Content: The description of the Content that was removed or disabled and its former location on our website.

  2. Good Faith Belief Statement: A statement, made under penalty of perjury, that we believe the Content was removed or disabled due to a mistake or misidentification.

  3. Our Contact Information: Our full name, mailing address, telephone number, and email address.

  4. Jurisdiction Consent Statement: A statement indicating our consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal Court in the judicial district where our address is located.

  5. Signature: Our electronic or physical signature.

If a counter-notice is received, we may inform the original complainant that we may restore the removed Content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the rights holder files a court action against us, the removed Content may be replaced, or access restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after the counter-notice receipt, at our discretion.

Liability Notice: Under Section 512(f) of the DMCA, individuals who knowingly misrepresent Content or activity as infringing may be liable for damages, including attorney fees.
