AlpineWeb Design (referred to as AlpineWeb in this document) is committed to helping parties protect their intellectual property rights. Under the provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), copyright owners have an opportunity to protect their rights in copyrighted content by notifying a service provider about conduct which they believe to be an infringement of such rights and making a demand that the allegedly infringing content be removed.
To notify AlpineWeb of an alleged copyright infringement, follow the instructions in Part I.
If you are responding to an allegation of infringement, follow the instructions in Part II.
PART I. Sending Notification of Alleged Infringement
A. Sending Your Notification
If you have a good faith belief that material on a system or network controlled or operated by AlpineWeb infringes your exclusive copyright, AlpineWeb requires that you provide written notification to AlpineWeb’s designated agent via email or USPS mail at the address in Part III.
To be effective, a written notification must include all of the following information:
Signature: A physical or electronic signature of the owner, or a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner, of an exclusive copyright that is allegedly infringed;
Information about your copyright: Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works on that site;
Information about the allegedly infringing material: Identification 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, and information reasonably sufficient to permit AlpineWeb to locate the material;
Contact information: Information reasonably sufficient to permit AlpineWeb to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which you may be contacted;
Statement of good faith: A statement that the complaining party has 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; and
Statement of authorization: A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is the owner, or is authorized to act on behalf of the owner, of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
B. After Company Receives Your Notification
If you provide AlpineWeb with effective notification, then AlpineWeb will:
Reply to you to confirm receipt of the notification;
Forward a copy your written notification to the alleged infringer requesting removal of the allegedly infringing material within 24 hours; and
Disable access to the allegedly infringing material or the alleged infringer’s account if the alleged infringer fails to remove such material within 24 hours of AlpineWeb’s notification.
An alleged infringer may send AlpineWeb a Counter Notification in response to your notification (see Part II below). If AlpineWeb notifies you that it has received a Counter Notification, AlpineWeb will reenable the allegedly infringing material or account within 10 to 14 business days following receipt of the Counter Notification UNLESS AlpineWeb receives a written notification from you that you are seeking a court order to restrain the alleged infringer from engaging in the infringing activity (an “Action Notification”). Your Action Notification must be received by AlpineWeb prior to AlpineWeb’s re-enabling the account or re-enabling access to the material. Following timely receipt of your notification of filing an action, AlpineWeb will promptly:
Inform the alleged infringer of the complaining party’s notification of filing an action seeking a court order and that access to the account or material will remain disabled; and
Refrain from re-enabling the alleged infringer’s access to the account or information.
PART II. Responding to a Notification of a Claim of Copyright Infringement
A. Sending Counter Notification
If you have received a notification alleging copyright infringement and you believe in good faith that the allegedly infringing material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled was done so by mistake or misidentification, you may provide AlpineWeb with a counter notification (“Counter Notification”) by sending it to AlpineWeb’s designated agent via email or mail at the address in Part III.
To be considered effective, the written Counter Notification to AlpineWeb’s designated agent must include all of the following information:
Signature: Your physical or electronic signature;
Identification of allegedly infringing material: Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled.
Statement of good faith: A statement under penalty of perjury that the alleged infringer has a good faith belief that the material was removed or access to it was disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification;
Contact information: Information reasonably sufficient to permit AlpineWeb to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which you may be contacted; and
Consent: A statement that the alleged infringer consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located, or if the alleged infringer’s address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which AlpineWeb may be found and that the alleged infringer will accept service of process from the complaining party or an agent of the complaining party.
Confirm receipt of your Counter Notification;
B. After AlpineWeb Receives Your Counter Notification
Upon receipt of an effective Counter Notification, AlpineWeb will:
Provide the complaining party with a copy of the Counter Notification, and inform the complaining party that AlpineWeb will replace the removed material or cease disabling access to it within 10 to 14 business days unless the complaining party provides written notification to AlpineWeb that the complaining party has filed an action in court to restrain access to allegedly infringing material.
Replace the removed material and cease disabling access to within 10 to 14 business days following receipt of the Counter Notification, unless AlpineWeb first receives an Action Notification from the complaining party.
