Governing Law; Jurisdiction
Digital Millennium Copyright Act
The Firm is committed to complying with U.S. copyright and related laws, and requires all customers and users of the Service to comply with these laws. Owners of copyrighted works who believe that their rights under U.S. copyright law have been infringed may take advantage of certain provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) to report alleged infringements.
In the event that you claim to be the copyright owner of any content, you agree to immediately notify the Firm of any claimed copyright infringement. You further agree to provide the Firm’s copyright agent the following information as required by the DMCA, Title 17, U.S.C. § 512:
Shelowitz Law Group PLLC
275 Seventh Avenue
New York, NY 10001
The Firm will respond expeditiously to either directly or indirectly (i) remove the allegedly infringing work(s) stored on the website or (ii) disable access to the work(s). The Firm will also notify the affected customer or user of the Service of the removal or disabling of access to the work(s). Copyright owners may use their own notification of claimed infringement form that satisfies the requirements of Section 512(c)(3) of the U.S. Copyright Act. Under the DMCA, anyone who knowingly makes misrepresentations regarding alleged copyright infringement may be liable to the Firm, the alleged infringer, and the affected copyright owner for any damages incurred in connection with the removal, blocking, or replacement of allegedly infringing material.
If you receive a notification of alleged infringement as described above, and you believe in good faith that the allegedly infringing works have been removed or blocked by mistake or misidentification, then you may send a counter notification to the Firm. Upon the Firm’s receipt of a counter notification that satisfies the DMCA requirements, the Firm will provide a copy of the counter notification to the person who sent the original notification of claimed infringement and will follow the DMCA’s procedures with respect to a received counter notification. In all events, you expressly agree that the Firm will not be a party to any disputes or lawsuits regarding alleged copyright infringement.
If a notification of claimed infringement has been filed against you, you can file a counter notification with the Firm’s designated agent using the contact information shown above. All counter notifications must satisfy the requirements of Section 512(g)(3) of the U.S. Copyright Act.
