DMCA Takedown Policy

Introduction: The Daily Globe (“TDG”) respects the intellectual property rights of others and expects its users to do the same. TDG has adopted this takedown policy to address alleged copyright infringement on its website. TDG complies with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) by responding to notices of alleged infringement that comply with the DMCA and removing or disabling access to content that is claimed to be infringing.

Notice of Infringement: If you believe that any material on TDG’s website infringes your copyright, please send a written notice to TDG containing the following information:

  1. A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
  2. 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 at that site.
  3. 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 TDG to locate the material.
  4. Information reasonably sufficient to permit TDG to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

Counter-Notice: If you believe that your content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the content, you may send a counter-notice to TDG’s designated copyright agent, containing the following information:

  1. Your physical or electronic signature.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Your name, address, telephone number, and email address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court in the judicial district in which your address is located (or if you are outside the United States, that you consent to jurisdiction of any judicial district in which TDG may be found), and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification under subsection (c)(1)(C) or an agent of such person.

TDG may provide a copy of any counter-notice to the original complaining party who submitted the takedown notice. If TDG does not receive notice within 10 business days that the original complaining party is seeking a court order to prevent further infringement of the content at issue, TDG may replace or cease disabling access to the content.
