Your Infringement Notice may be forwarded to the party that made the content available or to third parties such as ChillingEffects.org.

I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials described above as allegedly infringing is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.

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.

If an Infringement Notice is valid, we are required by law to respond to it by disabling access to the allegedly infringing content. If you are a VoteBash citizen and access to portions of your content have been disabled for this reason, we will notify you. You then have the option to send us a written counter-notice (a Counter-Notice) stating why your content does not infringe copyrights and asking for access to be reinstated. Counter-Notices need to be sent to our designated agent set forth above and must include the following:

  • Your name, address, phone number and physical or electronic signature;
  • A statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the U.S. Federal District Court for the judicial district in which you are located (or if you are outside the U.S., the U.S. Federal District Court for the District of Delaware), and that you will accept service of process from the person who originally provided us with the Infringement Notice (the “Copyright Holder”);
  • Identification of the allegedly infringing content and its location before removal or disabling of access; and
  • A statement under penalty of perjury that you believe in good faith that the content was removed by mistake or misidentification.
