Use of the Teach Sansar service requires that you honor and respect U.S. copyright law. You may not use our service to infringe anyone else’s copyright. While we understand that there are often differences of opinion about copyright law, the DMCA provides us with no discretion when an entity alleges copyright infringement.
What Is A DMCA Claim?
It is a request for us to remove copyrighted or abusive content.
If you discover that one of the blogs we host is illegally using your copyrighted material (e.g. text, images, your likeness, etc) or is abusive against you (e.g. defamation of character), you should submit a DMCA notice as described below.
It is the Teach Sansar policy, in appropriate circumstances and at its discretion, to disable and/or terminate the accounts of users who repeatedly infringe or are repeatedly charged with infringing the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of others.
More information on the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 may be found on the U.S. Copyright Office website at http://www.copyright.gov/legislation/dmca.pdf.
We take these claims seriously and we respond to all DMCA claims within 2 Business Days.
How To Submit A DMCA Claim
If you would like to make a Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) notice against a blog we host, section 512(c) of the Copyright Act requires that the “Notice” must be in writing and must include substantially all of the following:
A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed. (for example, typing your full name)
Identify in sufficient detail the location of copyrighted work. If multiple copyrighted works on a single blog are covered by a single notification, include a detailed representative list of all locations of such works on that blog.
Detailed description of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled with sufficient detail so that BlogPress is capable of easily finding it and verifying its existence.
Information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted.
A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.
A statement that you swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate, and that you are the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
In some circumstances, in order to notify the party who provided the allegedly infringing content we may forward a copy of the Notice including name and email address to the blog administrator or we may publish the Notice.
The administrator of an affected blog or the provider of affected content may make a counter notification pursuant to the DMCA. When we receive a counter notification, we may reinstate the material in question.
