In the event you believe that any content posted on the Sites infringes your copyright or other intellectual property rights, you may notify NextGenU.org by providing the information required by the Online Copyright Infringement Liability Limitation Act of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA"), 17 U.S.C. 512, to NextGenU.org as follows: a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed; c) information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact the complaining party, such as address, telephone number, and if available, an email address at which the complaining party may be contacted; d) identification of the NextGenU.org Content that is claimed to be infringing or to be subject to infringing activity and that is to be removed, and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the NextGenU.org Content; e) a statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the NextGenU.org Content in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, agent, or the law; and f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
NextGenU.org's designated Copyright Agent to receive notifications of claimed infringement is Dr. Erica Frank, P.O. Box 7, Clear Lake, WA 98235; email: copyright@NextGenU.org. You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements of this Section 10, your DMCA notice may not be valid.
You acknowledge and agree that upon receipt of a notice of a claim of copyright infringement, we may immediately remove the identified NextGenU.org Content from the Sites without liability to you or any other party, and that the claims of the complaining party and the party that originally posted the NextGenU.org Content will be referred to the United States Copyright Office for adjudication as provided in the DMCA. Additionally, we may decide, in our sole discretion, to take further disciplinary action, including account suspension or termination, if you repeatedly upload or link to copyright infringing material. If you believe that your Submission that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner's agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the content in your User Submission, you may send a counter notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent: a) your physical or electronic signature; b) identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled; c) a statement that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content; d) your name, address, telephone number, and email address; e) a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court in California; and f) a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.
If a counter notice is received by the Copyright Agent, NextGenU.org may send a copy of the counter notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member, or user, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter notice, at NextGenU.org's sole discretion.
