not only the person or entity infringing on their copyright, but may also
contact the designated agent of an Internet service provider to report
alleged infringements of their protected works, when such alleged
infringements appear on pages contained within the system of the
Internet service provider ("ISP").

The owner of this website and the ISP are committed to complying with
international trade law, international trade practices, all United States
laws, including United States copyright law. Upon receipt of a properly
filed complaint under the DMCA, the owner and/or the ISP of this
website will block access to the allegedly infringing material. The
website owner and/or the ISP will forward a copy of the notification of
claimed copyright infringement to the alleged infringer. Anyone who
believes in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has
wrongfully been filed against them, may submit a Counternotice to the

If a notice of copyright infringement has been filed with the website
owner and/or the ISP against you, the owner and/or the ISP will
attempt to notify you and provide you with a copy of the notice of
copyright infringement. If you have a good faith belief that you have
been wrongfully accused, you may file a counternotification with the
website owner and/or the ISP. If website owner and/or the ISP receives
a valid counternotification, the DMCA provides that the removed or
blocked information will be restored or access re-enabled.

The website owner and/or the ISP will replace the removed material and
cease disabling access to it in not less than 10, nor more than 14,
business days following receipt of the counternotification, unless the
website owner and/or ISP first receives notice from the complaining
party that such complaining party has filed an action seeking a court
order to restrain the alleged infringer from engaging in infringing
activity relating to the material on this website.

Please be advised that United States copyright law provides substantial
penalties for a false counternotice filed in response to a notice of
copyright infringement. Accordingly, if you are not sure whether certain
material of yours is protected by copyright laws, we suggest that you
first contact an attorney.
