Copyright and Intellectual Property Policy
COPYRIGHT AND INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY POLICY
BakeSpace, Inc. has adopted the following general policy regarding copyright infringement and violations of other intellectual property ("IP") in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (www.lcweb.loc.gov/copyright/legislation/dmca.pdf) and other applicable laws. The address of BakeSpace's Designated Agent to Receive Notification of Claimed Infringement (the "Designated Agent") is listed at the end of this policy.
It is our policy to (1) block access to or remove material that we believe in good faith to be copyrighted or otherwise protected material that has been illegally copied and distributed by any of our advertisers, affiliates, content providers, or users; and (2) remove and discontinue service to repeat offenders.
A. Procedure for Reporting Copyright Infringements and Other IP Violations:
If you believe that material or content residing on or accessible through the BakeSpace website or any BakeSpace service or product infringes a copyright or otherwise violates any IP right, please send a notice of copyright infringement or IP violation containing the following information to the Designated Agent listed below:
- A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright or IP that allegedly has been infringed;
- Identification of the work or material that you claim to be infringed;
- Identification of the material that you claim to be infringing, including information regarding the location of the infringing material that you seek to have removed (with sufficient detail so that we are capable of finding and verifying its existence);
- Your address, telephone number, and email address;
- A statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the material is not authorized by the copyright or IP owner, his, her or its agent, or the law; and
- A statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the information provided is accurate and that you are authorized to make the complaint on behalf of the copyright or IP owner.
B. Once Proper Bona Fide Infringement Notification Is Received by the Designated Agent:
It is our policy:
- to remove or disable access to the infringing material;
- to notify the content provider, member, or user that we have removed or disabled access to the material; and
- that repeat offenders will have the infringing material removed from the system and that we will terminate their access to our website, services and products.
C. Procedure to Supply a Counter-Notice to the Designated Agent:
If the content provider, member, or user believes that the material that was removed or to which access was disabled is either not infringing, or believes that it has the right to post and use that material from the copyright or IP owner, his, her or its agent, or pursuant to the law, the content provider, member, or user must send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Designated Agent listed below:
- A physical or electronic signature of the content provider, member, or user;
- 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, made under penalty of perjury, that the content provider, member, or user has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material; and
- The content provider's, member's, or user's name, address, telephone number, and email address, and a statement that such person or entity consents to the jurisdiction of the federal court for the judicial district in which the content provider's, member's, or user's address is located, or if the content provider's, member's, or user's address is located outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which BakeSpace is located, and that such person or entity will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement or that person's agent.
If a counter-notice is received by the Designated Agent, we may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that we may replace the removed material or cease disabling in 10 business days. Unless the copyright or IP owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member, or user, the removed material may be replaced or access to it restored in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at our discretion.
