Notice and Takedown Procedure
It is expected that all users of any part of the system will comply with applicable copyright laws. However, if the admin is notified of claimed copyright infringement or otherwise becomes aware of facts and circumstances from which infringement is apparent, we will respond expeditiously by removing, or disabling access to, the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity. The admin will comply with the appropriate provisions of the DMCA in the event a counter-notification is received by our designated agent.
Under appropriate circumstances, the admin may, in our discretion, terminate the authorization of users of our system or network who are repeat infringers.
Accommodation of Standard Technical Measures
It is the admin's policy to accommodate and not interfere with standard technical measures we determine are reasonable under the circumstances, in other words, technical measures that are used by copyright owners to identify or protect copyrighted works.
