If you believe that the materials reported in the copyright complaints were misidentified or removed in error, you may send us a counter-notification(s).

The complaint you received includes the contact information of the reporter. You may want to reach out and ask them to retract their notice. The reporter can send retractions to: [email protected] and should include: (1) identification of the material that was disabled, and (2) a statement that the reporter would like to retract their notice. This is the fastest and most efficient means of resolving an unresolved copyright complaint. A retraction is at the sole discretion of the original reporter.

If we do not receive notice within 10 business days that the original reporter is seeking a court order to prevent further infringement of the material at issue, we may replace or cease disabling access to the material that was removed.
