Notice and Takedown Procedure
Snowe is committed to resolving any copyright infringement issues according to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act as outlined in this Notice and Takedown Procedure.
Copyright Infringement Notification. To file a copyright infringement notification with us, you will need to send a written communication that includes substantially the following (please consult your legal counsel or see Section 512(c)(3) of title 17 of the United States Code (“Copyright Act”) to confirm these requirements):
Such written notice should be sent to our designated agent by email to:
Subject: Snowe DMCA Copyright Infringement Notification
or written communication to:
SNOWE DMCA Complaints
ATTN: Copyright Infringement Notification, 1201 Chestnut Street, Unit 806
Philadelphia, PA 19107
After we receive your copyright infringement notification, we will expeditiously take down the work(s).
If applicable, we will attempt to notify the alleged infringer of the copyright infringement notification and point them to the procedure for counter-notification. We will not share your personal information with the alleged infringer. If we receive a relevant counter-notification from the alleged infringer, we will forward it to you. You will have ten (10) days to notify us that you have filed an action seeking a court order to restrain the alleged infringer from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on Snowe’s Website or Services. If we receive such a notification, we will not restore the material. If we do not receive such notification, we may reinstate the material.
Please also note that under Section 512(f) of the Copyright Act, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability. Information provided in this legal notice may be forwarded to the person who provided the allegedly infringing content.
Counter-Notification. The process for counter-notifications is governed by Section 512(g) of the Copyright Act: http://www.copyright.gov/legislation/dmca.pdf
To file a counter notification with us, you must provide a written communication that sets forth the items specified below. Please note that under Section 512(f) of the Copyright Act, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability. Please also be advised that we enforce a policy that provides for the termination in appropriate circumstances of subscribers who are repeat infringers. Accordingly, if you are not sure whether certain material infringes the copyrights of others, we suggest that you first contact an attorney. Counter notifications should be sent to the email or postal address identified above.
After we receive your counter-notification, we will forward it to the party who submitted the original claim of copyright infringement. Please note that when we forward the counter-notification, it includes your personal information. By submitting a counter-notification, you consent to having your information revealed in this way. We will not forward the counter-notification to any party other than the original claimant.
After we send out the counter-notification, the claimant must then notify us within 10 days that he or she has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain you from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on Snowe’s Website or Services. If we receive such notification we will be unable to restore the material. If we do not receive such notification, we may reinstate the material.
Please note that under Section 512(f) of the Copyright Act, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability. Please also be advised that we enforce a policy that provides for the termination in appropriate circumstances of subscribers who are repeat infringers.
