Digital Millennium Copyright Act Notice
If you believe that content on our websites — Stinque (www.stinque.com) and the Stinque Zombie Bible (zombie.stinque.com) — infringes one or more of your copyrights, please notify us via email to firstname.lastname@example.org (Subject: “Infringement Notice”) with the information listed below.
Your Infringement Notice may be posted on our websites or forwarded to third parties such as ChillingEffects.org.
Please be advised that you will be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) if you materially misrepresent that our websites are infringing your copyrights.
DMCA Notice Procedure
Send your complaint to email@example.com as a plain-text email or attached PDF file, and include the following:
- An electronic signature of the copyright owner or a person authorized to act on their behalf.
- An identification of the copyright claimed to have been infringed.
- A description of the nature and exact location of the content that you claim to infringe your copyright, in sufficient detail to permit us to find and positively identify that content. Include a link (URL) to the specific post or page that contains the content, and a description of which specific portion of the post or page — an image, a link, the text, and so on — your complaint refers to. (If we can’t determine the content you’re referring to, we will email you for clarification.)
- Your name, mailing address, telephone number, and email address.
- Include the following statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.”
If your DMCA notice is valid, we are required by law to respond to it by disabling access to the allegedly infringing content.
Challenges to DMCA Notices
If your DMCA notice is challenged, we will contact you via email with a response. Grounds for challenges generally fall under Fair Use doctrine:
- The purpose and character of the use (transformation from the original, use for criticism, satire or parody).
- The nature of the copyrighted work (factual or newsworthy material, as opposed to creative works).
- The amount and substantiality of the portion used, in relation to the whole (a brief excerpt from a longer text; cropped, reduced, or low-resolution images used to convey a point).
- The effect on the potential market for the copyrighted work (use that does not substitute for the original, or would never be licensed).
