Rethink’s policy is to promptly respond to clear notices of alleged infringement that comply with the United States Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) (17 U.S.C. § 512) the text of which can be found at the U.S. Copyright Office Website (http://www.copyright.gov). This page sets forth the information that should be included in such notices. It is designed to make submission of notices and counter notices more straightforward while reducing the number of fraudulent notices or notices that are difficult to understand or verify.
Prior to serving either a notice of infringing material or counter notification, you may wish to contact a lawyer to better understand your rights and obligations under the DMCA and other applicable laws. The following notice requirements are intended to comply with Rethink’s rights and obligations under the DMCA, and do not constitute legal advice to you.
We expect our users to comply with applicable laws. If, however, we receive proper notification of claimed infringement, our response to such notices may include removing or disabling access to materials at issue and/or terminating users’ accounts, regardless of whether we may or may not be liable for such infringement under United States law or the laws of another jurisdiction.
If we remove or disable access in response to such a notice, we will make a good-faith attempt to contact the person who placed the materials at issue on our site so that they may make a counter notification under the DMCA.
Upon receipt of proper notification of claimed infringement, Rethink will follow the procedures outlined herein and in the DMCA.
To file a notice of infringement with Rethink, you must provide a written communication (by fax, regular mail or email) that sets forth the information specified below. Please note that you will be liable for damages (including costs and attorney's fees) if you misrepresent or provide fraudulent statements that the material or any activity is infringing your copyright(s). Accordingly, if you are not sure if you are the proper copyright holder or if copyright laws protect your materials, you may want to consult a lawyer.
