If you believe in good faith that someone has wrongly filed a notice of copyright infringement against you, the DMCA permits you to send to Paper Pixie a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must be sent in writing and meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA (see www.copyright.gov for details), which, with respect to notices of infringement, currently include, among other requirements, the following:
- Sufficient information identifying the copyrighted work(s) believed to be infringed.
- Sufficient information identifying the allegedly infringing material(s) and the location of such material(s) in order to permit Paper Pixie to locate such material(s).
- A statement from the owner (or the owner’s authorized representative) of the copyrighted work(s) believed to be infringed that such owner or authorized representative has a good faith belief that the allegedly infringing materials are used in a manner not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.
- Contact information for the complaining party, including a mailing address, a telephone number and, if available, an email address.
- A statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf.
- A signature or the electronic equivalent from the owner (or the owner’s authorized representative) of the copyrighted work(s) believed to be infringed.
Notices and counter-notices must be sent in writing to Paper Pixie’s DMCA agent as follows:
