BeyondNet Digital LTD. (“BeyondNet”) respects the copyrights, among other intellectual property rights, of others and requires that the people who use its services to do the same. The information below is meant to assist you in reporting content on a service provided by us that you believe infringes on copyrighted works that you own and/or control and to provide us with information to allow us to investigate your complaint.
- What should you do if you believe your copyrighted material has been infringed?
If you own or control copyrighted material that you believe one of our content provider partners (each a “BeyondNet Partner”) has posted on YouTube without proper authorization, send us a Takedown Request either by email at email@example.com
Disclaimer: If you are not certain whether a particular use is an infringement or a violation of your rights, consult with your own legal counsel. We cannot provide any legal advice to you. Also, filing a Takedown Request is a legal process. If you knowingly misrepresent in your notification that the material or activity is infringing, you may be liable for any damages incurred by us as the result of us relying upon such misrepresentation (including legal costs and attorney’s fees).
- What information is required in a Takedown Request?
In order for us to process your Takedown Request, please provide us all of the information below by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
– Your, or your authorized agent’s, physical or electronic signature as the copyright owner;
– Identification of the copyrighted work(s) claimed to have been infringed or, if multiple works are infringed, identification of a representative list of such works, including a link to the original work if available;
– Your contact information, including name, physical and email addresses and telephone number(s);
– A statement that you have a good faith belief that the use of the material in the manner asserted is not authorized by you, as the copyright owner, your agent, or the law; and
– A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and, under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner (if filed by an agent).
Note, we require all of the above information. If you send us incomplete information, we will not be able to process your request. We will return your request, indicating what information is missing by checking one or more of the boxes as detailed above.
- What happens after you file a Takedown Request?
Once we receive your Takedown Request, we will confirm with you our receipt through email. We will then review the Takedown Requests to make sure it contains all the necessary information. If we determine that your Takedown Request is indeed bona fide, we may decide in our sole discretion to remove or restrict access to the material complained of.
- What if you’re a BeyondNet Partner who is the subject of a Takedown Request?
If you are a BeyondNet Partner and we have removed or restricted access to your content as a result of a Takedown Request, we will take reasonable efforts to notify you and provide you with a copy of your Takedown Request. If you believe that the material that was removed (or to which access was disabled or restricted) is not infringing, or if you believe that you have the right to post and use such material, you can contest the removal or restriction of that material by filing a Counter Notice with us. Also, if you believe an error was made, you can always contact the person who made the Takedown Request.
Disclaimer: If you are not certain whether your use of a copyrighted material is permissible, consult with your own legal counsel. We cannot provide any legal advice to you. Also, filing a Counter Notice is a legal process. Make sure you have the appropriate rights before filing a Counter Notice. If you knowingly misrepresent in your notification that the material or activity is permissible, you may be liable for any damages incurred by us as the result of our relying upon such misrepresentation (including legal costs and attorney’s fees). If you are a BeyondNet Partner and make false claims, your actions may result in the suspension or even termination of your account with us, as well as the type of liability referred to above.
