Copyright and Intellectual Property Policy
Last Revised: September 24, 2015
Tutor Universe, Inc. (“Got It”) has adopted this Copyright and Intellectual Property Policy (the “Policy”) toward alleged copyright and intellectual property infringement on its website located at [www.gotitapp.co] (the “Site”) and in its services (the “Service”) in accordance with general U.S. intellectual property laws and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (http://lcweb.loc.gov/copyright/legislation/dmca.pdf). Got It may respond to notices of this form from jurisdictions other than the U.S. as well. The address of Got It’s Designated Agent to Receive Notification of Claimed Infringement (“Designated Agent”) is listed at the end of this policy.
Got It may respond to a proper notice by (1) removing or disabling access to material claimed to be subject of infringing activity; and (2) removing and discontinuing service to repeat offenders. If Got It removes or disables access in response to such a notice, Tutor Universe will make a good-faith attempt to contact the allegedly infringing party (“Accused Party”) so that they may make a counter notification.
Procedure for Reporting Copyright or Intellectual Property Infringement:
If you believe that material residing on or accessible through the Site or Service infringes a copyright or other intellectual property right, to provide Got It of notice of such infringement, you must send a written notice of the infringement to the Designated Agent listed below. Please specify the type of infringement at issue and the notice must include the following information:
- A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright or intellectual property right that has been allegedly infringed upon (by fax or regular mail – not by email, except by prior agreement);
- Identification in sufficient detail of the material being infringed upon (for an allegation of a patent infringement, please provide a patent number);
- Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing upon the intellectual property. Include information regarding the location of the infringing material with sufficient detail so that Got It is capable of finding and verifying its existence;
- Contact information including the name of the intellectual property owner, the name and title of the person contacting Got It on the owner’s behalf, the address, telephone number and, if available, e-mail address;
- A statement that the notifying party has a good faith belief that the material is not authorized by the intellectual property or copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
- A statement made under penalty of perjury that the information provided is accurate and the notifying party is the intellectual property owner or is authorized to make the complaint on behalf of the intellectual property owner.
Removal of Allegedly Infringing Material
When removing material from the Site or the Service, Got It will make reasonable attempts to inform the Accused Party of the removal and the reason for the removal.
Once an infringement notification is received by the Designated Agent in accordance with this Policy, Got It may remove or disable access to the allegedly infringing material. If Got It removes or disables access to content in response to an infringement notice, Got It will make reasonable attempts to notify the Accused Party that Got It has removed or disabled access to the material. Repeat offenders may have all material removed from the site and Got It terminate such party’s access to the Site and/or the Service.
Procedure to Supply a Copyright Counter-Notice to the Designated Agent:
If you believe that your material that was removed or access that was disabled is not infringing upon a copyright, you must send a counter-notice, pursuant to 512(g)(2) and (3) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Please do not re-list or reactivate the material yourself (follow the instructions provided).
The counter-notice must contain the following information to the Designated Agent listed below:
- Your physical or electronic signature (by fax or regular mail, not by email, except by prior written agreement);
- Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled;
- A statement, under penalty of perjury, that the you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material; and
- Your name, address, telephone number, and, if available, e-mail address and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal Court for the judicial district in which the Accused Party’s address is located, or if your address is located outside the United States, for any judicial district in which Got It is located, and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification under subsection (c)(1)(C) or an agent of such person.
If a counter-notice is received by the Designated Agent, Got It may notify the original complaining party that Got It may replace the removed material or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright or intellectual property owner files an action seeking a court order against the Accused Party, the removed material may be replaced or access to it restored in 10 to 14 business days after receipt of the counter-notice, at Got It’s discretion.
