DMCA Copyright Policy

What is the DMCA?
Section 512 of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) outlines the statutory requirements necessary for formally reporting copyright infringement, as well as providing instructions on how an affected party can appeal a removal by submitting a compliant counter-notice.

What Types of Copyright Complaints Does eBooksPreviews.com Respond To?
eBooksPreviews.com will respond to reports of all alleged copyright infringement.

Am I a Copyright Holder? How Do I Know?
If you are unsure whether you hold rights to a particular work, please consult an attorney or another adviser as eBooksPreviews.com cannot provide legal advice. There are plenty of resources to learn more about copyright law including http://copyright.gov, http://chillingeffects.org/, and http://www.eff.org/issues/bloggers/legal/liability/IP, to name a few.

What Information Do You Need To Process a Copyright Complaint?
To submit a notice of claimed copyright infringement, you will need to provide us with the following information:
  1. A physical or electronic signature (typing your full name will suffice) of the copyright owner or a person authorized to act on their behalf;
  2. Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (e.g., a link to your original work or clear description of the materials allegedly being infringed upon);
  3. Identification of the infringing material and information reasonably sufficient to permit eBooksPreviews.com to locate the material on our website or services;
  4. Your contact information, including your address, telephone number, and an email address;
  5. A statement that you have a good faith belief that the use of the material in the manner asserted is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
  6. A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and, under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.
How Do I File a Copyright Complaint?
You can report alleged copyright infringement by using the Contact Page.

Please be aware that under 17 U.S.C. § 512(f), you may be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees incurred by us or our users, if you knowingly materially misrepresent that material or activity is infringing, as was the case in Lenz v. Universal and OPG v. Diebold. If you are unsure whether the material you are reporting is in fact infringing, you may wish to contact an attorney before filing a notification with us.

How Are Claims Processed?
We process reports in the order in which they are received. Once you've submitted your ticket, we will email you a ticket confirmation. Please note, submitting duplicate DMCA notifications may result in a delay in processing.

If we decide to remove or disable access to the material, we will notify the affected user(s) after removing or disabling access to the material, provide them with access to the reporter’s complaint along with instructions on how to file a counter-notice, and forward a copy of the complaint to Chilling Effects.

What Happens Next?
eBooksPreviews.com’s response to notices of alleged copyright infringement may include the removal or restriction of access to allegedly infringing material. If we remove or restrict access to user content in response to a notice of alleged infringement, eBooksPreviews.com will make a good faith effort to contact the affected account holder with information concerning the removal or restriction of access, including a copy of the takedown notice, along with instructions for filing a counter-notification.

Tip: If you’ve not yet received a copy of the DMCA notification regarding the content removed from your account, please respond to the support ticket we sent you.

In an effort to be as transparent as possible regarding the removal or restriction of access to user-posted content, we clearly mark withheld Tweets and media to indicate to viewers when content has been withheld (examples below). We also send a copy of each DMCA notification and counter-notice that we process to Chilling Effects, where they are posted to a public-facing website (with your personal information removed).
