CATCHINBASS.COM
DMCA / COPYRIGHT POLICY

We respect copyright regulations and the intellectual property of others. We ask our users to do the same.

Our team at catchinbass.com adheres to the safe harbor provisions of 17 USC. § 512, more commonly known as the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).

We respond to written notification of copyright infringements in accordance with the DMCA. If you believe your copyrighted material is being infringed on our website, contact us immediately. We will do our best to provide swift resolution of the issue.

Notification of Copyright Infringement

If you are a copyright owner (or an agent of a copyright owner) and believe any user material posted on our sites infringes upon your copyrights, you may submit a Notification of Claimed Infringement under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) by sending a letter to our Compliance Team at the address found at the bottom of this page.

Your claim must substantially comply with the safe harbor provisions of the DMCA. Your notice of claim must be written and include ALL of the following:

  1. A clear identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed. If multiple copyrighted works are posted on a single web page and you notify us about all of them in a single notice, you may provide a representative list of such works found at the site.
  2. A clear identification of the material you claim is infringing on the copyrighted work, and information sufficient to locate that material on our website (such as the page url of the infringing material).
  3. A statement that you have a “good faith belief that the material that is claimed as copyright infringement is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.”
  4. A statement that “the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.”
  5. Your contact information so that we can reply to your notice, preferably including an e-mail address and telephone number. The more contact information we have, the easier it is for us to resolve your claim quickly.
  6. The notice must be physically or electronically signed by the copyright owner or a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner.

Important Note:

We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a Notification of Claimed Infringement. Please note that you may be liable for damages if you make a false claim of copyright infringement. Section 512(f) of the Copyright Act provides that any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material is infringing may be subject to liability.

Please also be advised that, in appropriate circumstances, we will terminate the accounts of users/subscribers who repeatedly misidentify copyrighted material or violate the terms or spirit of our policy. We reserve sole discretion in determining when, how and what action to take.
