iQ Media Group LLC (“iQ media”) is committed to protectinig the rights of copyright holders, including broadcast content owners. Among other protections, iQ media requires all users to limit their use of content in the iQ media database to fair uses and other non-infringing uses permitted by copyright law. By the same token, iQ media encourages rights holders to notify us of any infringements. We enforce a policy that provides for the termination of users who are repeat infringers.
To file a copyright infringement notification with us, you will need to send a written communication that includes substantially the following (please consult your legal counsel or see Section 512©(3) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act to confirm these requirements):
A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site or location are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site or location.
Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit iQ media to locate the material. Providing URLs in the body of an email, where practical, is the best way to help us locate content quickly.
Information reasonably sufficient to permit iQ media to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted.
A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.
A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
You may send written or email notification to our designated copyright agent at the following address:

Counter-notificationsIf you are the subject of a copyright infringement notification and believe you possess all necessary rights to use content in the manner that is being complained about, you may wish to file a counter-notification under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. To file a counter-notification with us, you must provide a written communication that sets forth the items specified below.
Please understand that filing a counter-notification may lead to legal proceedings between you and the complaining party. Be aware that there may be adverse legal consequences in your country if you make a false or bad faith allegation by using this process.
Please also be advised that we enforce a policy that provides for the termination of users who are repeat infringers, and our contracts also provide us with additional rights to terminate you or disable access to content in certain circumstances. If you are not sure whether certain material infringes the copyrights of others, we suggest that you first contact a lawyer.
A counter-notification must include the following specific elements:
Identification of the specific URLs (or other location) of material that iQ media has removed or to which iQ media has disabled access.
Your full name, address, telephone number, email address, and the username of your iQ media account.
The statement: “I consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the district in which my address is located, or if my address is outside of the United States, the judicial district in which iQ media is located, and will accept service of process from the claimant.”
The statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.”
Signature. A scanned physical signature or a valid electronic signature will be accepted.
We can only accept a counter-notification directly from the user from whose account material has been disabled. For verification, we require that counter-notifications be submitted from the email address associated with the account.
After we receive your counter-notification, we will forward it to the party who submitted the original claim of copyright infringement. Please note that when we forward the counter-notification, it includes your personal information. By submitting a counter-notification, you consent to having your information revealed in this way.
After we send out the counter-notification, the claimant must then notify us within 10 business days that he or she has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain you from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material that is the subject of the complaint. If we receive such notification we will be unable to restore the material. If we do not receive such notification, we may in our sole and absolute discretion reinstate access to the material.
