  3. Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information sufficiently reasonable to permit the service provider to locate the material. This includes, at minimum, the URL link on the website or the Internet location where such material may be found.
  4. Information sufficiently reasonable to permit the service provider to contact you: your name, address, telephone number and email address.
  5. A statement that you have 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:

  6. A statement, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information is accurate, and that you are copyright owner or are authorized to act on behalf of the owner:

Claims Processing

Equipboard processes claims in the order in which they are received. Please be aware that submitting duplicate claims may result in a delay in processing. Once Equipboard’s Designated Copyright Agent receives a proper, bona fide infringement notification, it is our policy:

  • To remove or disable access to the infringing material
  • To notify the content provider, member or user that we have removed or disabled access to the material
  • That repeat offenders will have the infringing material removed from the system and that we will terminate such content provider’s, member’s or user’s access to the website service.

What if I receive a Copyright complaint (DMCA) notification?

A DMCA notification shows that the content described in the notification has been removed from Equipboard or access to the content on Equipboard has been restricted. Should the content provider, user, or member believe that the material that was removed, or to which access was disabled, is not infringing, such party has the right to file a counter-notice with Equipboard in accordance with Section 512(g) of the DMCA.

Filing a Counter-Notice

A counter-notice containing all of the following information must be sent to Equipboard's Designated Copyright Agent:

  1. A physical or electronic signature of the content provider, member or user.
  2. Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared online before such removal or disabling.
  3. A statement that the content provider, member or user has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.
  4. The content provider’s, member’s, or user’s name, address, telephone number, and, if available, email address, and a statement that such person or entity consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal Court for the judicial district in which the content provider’s, member’s, or user’s address is located, or, if the content provider’s, member’s or user’s address is located outside the United States, for any judicial district in which Equipboard is located, and that such person or entity will accept service of process from the person who provided notification or an agent of such person.

Federal law states that if you knowingly misrepresent, or submit fraudulent and/or bad-faith claims, that online material is infringing, you may be subject to criminal prosecution for perjury and civil penalties, including monetary damages, court costs, and attorney’s fees. You may want to seek legal counsel before taking any action pursuant to the DMCA.
