What Is the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998?

Under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998, 17 U.S.C. § 512 (the “DMCA”), copyright owners have recourse in the event that content on the Internet infringes on their rights under United States copyright law.

How to Deal with Copyright Infringement

If, in good faith, you believe that material or content available on or in connection to our website or services has infringed on your copyright, you or an agent should send a notice to us. This notice requests that the content be removed or access to it blocked. Written notices and counter-notices should be sent by mail to: Copyright Compliance Department, 714Web, P.O. Box 574, Seymour, TN 37865 or by email to info@714web.com.

The DMCA requires your notice of alleged copyright infringement to include:

(1) description of the copyrighted work that is the subject of claimed infringement;

(2) description of the alleged infringing content and information sufficient to permit us to locate the content;

(3) your contact information, including your address, telephone number, and e-mail address;

(4) your good faith statement that the content is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the operation of any law;

(5) your statement, signed under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate. Also that you have the authority to enforce the copyrights that are claimed to be infringed; and

(6) a physical or electronic signature of the copyright owner or authorized person.

Failure to include all of the above information may result in the delay of the processing of your complaint.
