DMCA POLICY

MINASVG COMPREHENSIVE DMCA POLICY

At Minasvg, we uphold the sanctity of intellectual property rights and endeavor to safeguard both our rights and those of copyright owners. In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), Title 17, United States Code, Section 512(c), copyright owners or their agents may submit a takedown notice to us via our DMCA Agent, as specified below. As an internet service provider, we are entitled to seek immunity from infringement claims under the “safe harbor” provisions of the DMCA.

Submitting a Takedown Notice

To submit a good faith infringement claim, the notice must include the following information:

  • Notice of Infringement – Claim:
    • A physical or electronic signature of the copyright owner or their authorized representative.
    • Identification of the copyrighted work allegedly infringed.
    • Identification of the infringing material, along with sufficient information to locate it (such as the URL of the page).
    • Contact information of the complaining party, including name, physical address, email address, phone number, and fax number.
    • A statement affirming that the use of the material is unauthorized by the copyright owner.
    • A statement attesting to the accuracy of the information provided and asserting, under penalty of perjury, the complainant’s authority to act on behalf of the copyright owner.

According to Title 17 USC §512(f), individuals who knowingly and materially misrepresent information in a notification of infringement may be subject to civil penalties, including costs and attorney fees.

Send all takedown notices through our Contact page, preferably via email for expedited attention.

Please be aware that we may share the identity and information in any copyright infringement claim with the alleged infringer. By submitting a claim, you acknowledge and consent to the potential communication of your identity and claim to the alleged infringer.

Counter Notification – Restoration of Material

If you receive a takedown notice due to a copyright infringement claim, you have the option to provide a counter-notification to have the material restored. Your counter-notification must be in writing and contain the following elements pursuant to 17 USC Section 512(g)(3):

  • Your physical or electronic signature.
  • A description of the removed material and its original location.
  • A statement, under penalty of perjury, affirming your belief that the removal resulted from a mistake or misidentification.
  • Your name, address, telephone number, and consent to the jurisdiction of the federal district court.

We take copyright infringement seriously and maintain a list of DMCA notices to identify repeat infringers. Those violating our internal repeat infringer policy will have their accounts terminated.
