The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 addresses the remedies available to copyright owners who believe that their proprietary rights have been infringed on an Internet site accessed through a host Internet service provider. Under the Act, a copyright owner claiming unauthorized online use of protected works is required to provide specific notice of such claim to the Designated Agent of the host and request that the infringing material be removed or that access to the material be blocked.
If you believe in good faith that Extend America should be notified of a potential online copyright infringement occurring in an Extend America Website, please promptly notify Extend America’s Designated Agent:
DMCA Designated Agent
222 South 12th Street
Bismarck, ND 58504
To be effective under the Act, your notification to Extend America’s Designated Agent must be made in writing or by e-mail and must include the following:
- Identification of the copyrighted work that you claim has 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;
- Identification of the material that you claim is 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 Extend America to locate the page or site holding the material;
- Information reasonably sufficient to permit Extend America to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and if available, an electronic mail address;
- A statement that you believe in good faith that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;
- A statement under penalty of perjury that the information in the notification is accurate and that you are either the owner of an exclusive right that has allegedly been infringed or are authorized to act on behalf of such owner; and,
- Your physical or electronic signature (as either the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed, or as a person legally authorized to act on behalf of such owner);
Before you provide Extend America with notification of a claimed infringement, you should carefully review your claim to ensure that it is accurate and made in good faith. Under the Act, there are substantial penalties for false claims.
Upon receiving proper notification of an alleged copyright infringement involving the posted material, we will review your claim and take appropriate action in accordance with our Acceptable Use Policy.
If you have received notice from us of a claim of infringement made in relation to materials you placed on the Internet and you believe in good faith that such claim has been wrongly made against you by the claiming party, you may submit a counter-notice to bring about a private dispute between you and the party claiming copyright infringement. You should provide your counter-notification to:
DMCA Designated Agent
222 South 12th Street
Bismarck, ND 58504
Before you provide us with counter-notification denying a claim of Infringement, you should carefully review your statement to ensure that it is accurate and made in good faith. Challenges to claims of infringement must be substantiated in court to withstand the claims by the copyright owner.
Please note: Do not send any other notices, including notifications of account termination, service complaints or any other communications, to the Designated Agent. The Designated Agent is appointed solely for the purpose of receiving and reviewing claims of online copyright infringement made pursuant to the Digital Millenium Copyright Act of 1998.
