13. Notification of Copyright Infringement.
a. Trivantis respects the Intellectual Property Rights of others and expects its users to do the same. Trivantis will respond to clear notices of copyright infringement consistent with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, Title 17, United States Code, Section 512(c)(2) (“DMCA”) and its response to such notices may include removing or disabling access to the allegedly infringing content, terminating the accounts of repeat infringers, and/or making good-faith attempts to contact the user who posted the content at issue so that he may, where appropriate, make a counter-notification.
b. If you believe that your work has been used or copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement and such infringement is hosted on the Services, on web sites linked to or from the Services, or in connection with the Services or Materials, please provide, pursuant to the DMCA, written notification via regular mail or via fax (not via e-mail or phone) of claimed copyright infringement to the Trivantis Copyright Agent (contact information below), which must contain all of the following elements:
i. A physical or electronic signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest that is alleged to have been infringed;
ii. A description of the copyrighted work(s) that you claim have been infringed and identification of what content in such work(s) is claimed to be infringing and which you request to be removed or access to which is to be disabled;
iii. A description of where the content that you claim is infringing is located on the Services;
iv. Information sufficient to permit Trivantis to contact you, such as your physical address, telephone number and e-mail address;
v. A statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the use of the content identified in your notice in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and
vi. A statement by you that the information in your notice is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that you are the copyright owner or are authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf.
Before you file such a notification, please carefully consider whether or not the use of copyrighted material at issue is protected by the “fair use” doctrine, as you could be liable for costs and attorneys’ fees should you file a takedown notice where there is no infringing use. If you are unsure whether a use of your copyrighted material constitutes infringement, please contact an attorney. In addition, you may wish to consult publicly available reference materials such as those found at www.chillingeffects.org.
c. If you believe access to your content was disabled or removed by Trivantis as a result of an improper copyright infringement notice, please provide, pursuant to the DMCA, written notification via regular mail or via fax (not via e-mail or phone) to the Trivantis Copyright Agent (contact information below), which must contain all of the following elements:
i. A physical or electronic signature of the subscriber;
ii. Identification of the material that was removed from the Services and the location of the Service on which the material appeared before it was removed;
iii. A statement under penalty of perjury that you have 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;
iv. Information sufficient to permit Trivantis to contact you, such as your physical address, telephone number and e-mail address; and
v. A statement that you consent to jurisdiction of the Federal District court for the district where you reside (or of Hamilton County, Ohio if you reside outside of the United Sates) and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification under DMCA subsection (c)(1)(C) or an agent of such person.
Before you file such a counter-notification, please carefully consider whether or not the use of the copyrighted material at issue is infringing, as you could be liable for costs and attorneys’ fees in the event that a court determines your counter-notification misrepresented that the material was removed by mistake. If you are unsure whether use of the material at issue constitutes infringement, please contact an attorney. In addition, you may wish to consult publicly available reference materials such as those found at www.chillingeffects.org.
d. Trivantis’s Copyright Agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement can be reached as follows by mail:
311 Elm Street, Suite 200
Cincinnati, Ohio 45202
By fax: 513.929.0770
By email: info@Trivantis.com
By telephone: (513) 929-0188 The Copyright Agent will not remove content from the Services in response to phone or email notifications regarding allegedly infringing content, since a valid DMCA notice must be signed, under penalty of perjury, by the copyright owner or by a person authorized to act on his or her behalf. Please submit such notifications by fax or ordinary mail only and as further described by this Section. The Copyright Agent should be contacted only if you believe that your work has been used or copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement and that such infringement is occurring on the Services or on sites linked to or from the Services, or in connection with the Services or Materials. All other inquiries directed to the Copyright Agent will not be responded to. Such inquiries should be made through the feedback procedure referenced in Section 9 or the report abuse procedure referenced in Section 21(h).
14. Indemnity and Liability.
You agree to indemnify and hold Trivantis and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, agents, employees, co-branders or other partners, and licensors harmless from any claim or demand, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, due to or arising out of Your Content, your use of the Services or Materials, your connection to the Services or Materials, the actions of any member of your group, your access to or use of Linked Sites and your connections therewith, any claim that Your Content caused damage to a third party, any dealings between you and any third parties advertising or promoting via the Services or Materials, your violation of the Terms, or your violation of any rights of another, including any Intellectual Property Rights.
