Counter-notification/Notification of Non-infringement

If you believe that material you have posted to DMLcentral was removed or had access to it disabled due to either a mistake or misrepresentation regarding its copyright status (e.g., a non-infringing use was mistakenly accused of infringement), you may send a counter-notification to DMLcentral Copyright Agent requesting that the material be reinstated. Such a notification must include:

(a) Your physical or electronic signature;

(b) Identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled;

(c) A statement that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content (e.g., the use was a fair use); and

(d) Your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court in Los Angeles, California, and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.

As per the DMCA, if a counter-notification is received by our Copyright Agent, DMLcentral may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against DMLcentral or you and notifies us of such, DMLcentral will have the discretion to restore the contested content within 10 to 14 business days.
