11. PROCEDURE FOR MAKING AND RESPONDING TO CLAIMS OF COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT -- DMCA NOTICE

It is the policy of Foundation to respond to claims of copyright infringement. We will promptly process and investigate notices of alleged infringement by third parties and will take appropriate actions under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, Title 17, United States Code, Section 512(c)(2) ("DMCA"), where applicable. Pursuant to the DMCA, notifications of claimed copyright infringement by third parties should be sent to Foundation's Designated Agent. If you believe that your copyrighted work has been infringed under U.S. copyright law and is accessible on this Web Site, please notify us by contacting our Designated Agent. Even if you believe that the alleged infringing work was not posted by a third party, please send all notifications of claimed copyright infringement to Foundation's Designated Agent listed below. To be effective under the DMCA, notification of claims of copyright infringement by third parties must be a written communication to Foundation's Designated Agent that includes the following: 1. A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed; 2. Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site; 3. 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 the Foundation to locate the material; 4. Information reasonably sufficient to permit the Foundation 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; 5. 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; and 6. 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.

Foundation's Designated Agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement can be reached as follows:

By mail:
Jimmy Rane Foundation
P.O. Box 40
1100 U.S. Highway 431 North
Abbeville, Alabama 36310

By e-mail: info@jimmyranefoundation.org

This contact information is only for reporting claims of copyright infringement. Contact information for other matters is provided elsewhere on this site. Upon receipt of a valid notification of alleged copyright infringement by a third party, Foundation shall remove or disable access to the material identified in the notice, forward the written notification to the alleged infringer, and take reasonable efforts to notify the alleged infringer that it has removed or disabled access to this material. You should be aware that, under the DMCA, claimants who make misrepresentations concerning copyright infringement may be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys' fees, incurred by the alleged infringer or by Foundation, if injured by relying upon such misrepresentation in removing or disabling access to the material or activity claimed to be infringing. If a notice of copyright infringement has been filed against you, you may file a counter notification with the Designated Agent at the address listed above. To be effective, a counter notification must be a written communication provided to the Foundation's Designated Agent that includes the following:

1. A physical or electronic signature;

 

2. 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 access to it was disabled;

 

3. Adequate information by which we can contact you (including your name, postal address, telephone number, and, if available, email address).

 

 

4. A statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material identified above was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled; and

 

5. A statement that you will consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located (or if you reside outside the United States for any judicial district in which the Website may be found) and that you will accept service from the person (or an agent of that person) who provided the Website with the complaint at issue.
If Foundation receives a valid counter notification, it shall provide the complainant with a copy of the counter notification, inform the complainant that it will replace the removed material or cease disabling access to it in 10 to 14 days from receipt of the counter notification, and replace the removed material or cease disabling access to it in 10 to 14 business days, provided that Foundation has not received notice from the complainant that an action has been filed seeking a court order to restrain the alleged infringer from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on Foundation's system. You should be aware that the DMCA provides substantial penalties for a false counter notice filed in response to a notice of copyright infringement. Claimants who make misrepresentations in their counter notification statement may be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys' fees, incurred by any copyright owner or copyright owner's authorized licensee, or by Foundation, if injured by relying upon such misrepresentation in replacing the removed material or ceasing to disable access to it.  The DMCA allows us to restore the removed content if the party filing the original DMCA Notice does not file a court action against you within ten business days of receiving the copy of your Counter-Notice.
