Crierspost abides by the federal Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the “DMCA”) by responding to notices of
alleged infringement that comply with the DMCA and other applicable laws. As
part of our response, we may remove or disable access to material that is controlled or operated by Crierspost
that is claimed to be infringing, in which case we will make a good-faith attempt to
contact the person who submitted the affected material so that they may make a counter notification, also in
accordance with the DMCA.
Crierspost does not control content hosted on third party applications or websites, and cannot remove content from applications or sites it does not own or control. If you are the copyright owner of content hosted on a third party application or site, and you have not authorized the use of your content, please contact the administrator of that application or website directly to have the content removed.
If your copyright-protected work was posted on Crierspost without authorization, you may submit a copyright infringement notification (takedown notice). Be sure to consider whether fair use, fair dealing, or a similar exception to copyright applies before you submit. These requests should only be sent in by the copyright owner or an agent authorized to act on the owner’s behalf. Before serving either a takedown copyright infringement notification or Counter-Notification, you may wish to contact a lawyer to better understand your rights and obligations under the DMCA and other applicable laws. The following notice requirements are intended to comply with Crierspost’s rights and obligations under the DMCA and, in particular, section 512(c), and do not constitute legal advice.
Please note that all of the following is not a substitute for legal advice and you should obtain legal advice to better understand your rights and obligations under the DMCA and applicable laws.
For takedown notices to be legally effective, they must be provided to Crierspost’s designated agent in writing
and include substantially the following:
If you get an email from Crierspost of a copyright infringement, that means your video has been taken down from
Crierspost because a copyright owner sent us a complete and valid legal
request asking us to do so. When a copyright owner formally notifies us that you don’t have their permission to
post their content, we take down your upload to comply with copyright law.
Should you receive three or more notifications from Crierspost that you have infringed on copyrighted material,
Crierspost has the complete discretion to suspend your account.
Keep in mind that videos can be removed from Crierspost for different reasons, not all of which are copyright-related.
If material that you have posted to Crierspost has been taken down, you may file a counter-notification. A
counter notification is a legal request for Crierspost to reinstate a video
that has been removed for alleged copyright infringement. The process may only be pursued in instances where the
upload was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or
disabled, such as fair use. It should not be pursued under any other circumstances. Keep in mind that videos can
be removed from Crierspost for different reasons, not all of which are copyright-related.
Counter notifications must be submitted by the video’s original uploader or an agent authorized to act on their behalf, such as an attorney and contain the following details:
