The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If You believe in good faith that materials hosted by Tranquility infringe your copyright (for example, materials posted by Tranquility), You (or Your agent) may send Tranquility a notice requesting that the material be removed or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information:
• a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed
• identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on the Tranquility Sites or in Tranquility Services are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works);
• identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow Tranquility to locate the material on the Tranquility Sites and in the Tranquility Services;
• the name, address, telephone number and e-mail address (if available) of the complaining party;
• 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
• a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
• If You believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed by Tranquility against you, the DMCA permits You to send Tranquility a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.copyright.gov for details. Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Tranquility Sites should be sent in the first instance by email at email@example.com
