Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) Notice



We do our best to link only to DMCA compliant sites and to quickly remove links to sites hosting infringing content. If you find links to copyright infringing content on XXX.XXX we are able to remove our link to that content. We cannot, however, ensure that your content will be removed from that third party site. To ensure that your content is removed from the infringing site, you must contact them directly.

If you see your unauthorized copyrighted content linked to from XXX.XXX, please complete the following DMCA Notification and we will expeditiously remove the links identified in your notice.

DMCA Notice Procedure

Please provide us with the following information:

  1. Identify with particularity the copyrighted work that you believe has been infringed. For example, "The property at issue is work that I own a copyright for, and is an image of..."
  2. Identify with specificity the content that you claim is infringing or has infringed the work listed in item #1 above, including identifying URLs and domain name on which the allegedly infringing material is located.
  3. Provide information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact you by mail and email.
  4. Include the following statement: "I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials described above on the allegedly infringing web pages are not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law."
  5. Include the following statement: "I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the Notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed."
  6. Sign the notice via electronic or physical signature.
  7. Email the notice to support @ icmregistry.com.

Pursuant to the DMCA, once we receive a properly prepared notice asserting copyright infringement, we may remove or disable access to material claimed to be the subject of infringing activity, and we may disable and/or terminate the accounts of users who repeatedly infringe the copyrights of others. We may also document notices of alleged infringement on which we act.

If a DMCA notice has been filed with us against your .XXX website, we will advise you of that fact. If you would like to file a DMCA counter-notice, we will provide you with a means to do so when we notify you of the claimed infringement.

You may want to seek independent legal counsel before filing either the DMCA notice or the counter-notice.

Filing a DMCA Counter-notification to Restore Removed Content

If you believe that your material has been removed by mistake or misidentification, please provide XXX.XXX with a written counter-notification containing the following information:

  1. Your name, address, and telephone number.
  2. A description of the material that was removed and the location on the .XXX Site (e.g., the URL) where it previously appeared.
  3. A statement UNDER PENALTY OF PERJURY that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification.
  4. A statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located, or if your address is outside of the United States, then in Florida and that you will accept service of process from the person who filed the original DMCA notice or an agent of that person.
  5. Your electronic or physical signature.
  6. You may submit this information via email to: support @ icmregistry.com

Please note that we will send any complete counter-notifications we receive to the person who submitted the original DMCA notice. That person may elect to file a lawsuit against you for copyright infringement. If we do not receive notice that a lawsuit has been filed within ten (10) business days after we provide notice of your counter-notification, we will restore the removed materials. Until that time, your materials will remain removed.

Repeat Infringer Policy

For domain names that have been the subject of three (3) valid DMCA notices, we will remove the domain name from XXX.XXX and other related products. In the event a user’s URLs are removed due to a DMCA notice and then subsequently restored due to the filing of a valid DMCA counter-notification, we will treat the underlying DMCA notice as withdrawn.

At all times, ICM Registry LLC reserves the right to remove the domain name from XXX.XXX and other related products or terminate any user accounts that are the subject of fewer than three (3) DMCA notices in appropriate circumstances, such as where the user has a history of violating or willfully disregarding ICM Registry’s Terms of Service.

Warning

In filing a DMCA notice or counter-notification, please make sure that you have complied with all of the above requirements. If we request additional information necessary to make your DMCA notice or counter-notification complete, please provide that information promptly. If you fail to comply with all of these requirements, your DMCA notice or counter-notification may not be processed further.

In addition, please make sure that all of the information you provide is accurate. UNDER SECTION 512(f) OF THE COPYRIGHT ACT, 17 U.S.C. § 512(f), ANY PERSON WHO KNOWINGLY MATERIALLY MISREPRESENTS THAT MATERIAL OR ACTIVITY IS INFRINGING OR WAS REMOVED OR DISABLED BY MISTAKE OR MISIDENTIFICATION MAY BE SUBJECT TO LIABILITY.

ICM Registry LLC may disclose any communications concerning DMCA notices or other intellectual property complaints with third parties, including the users who have posted the allegedly infringing material.
