We take copyright very seriously here at Trint. This page outlines our process for handling copyright infringement takedown requests.
Section 512(c) of the DMCA requires that a notice include all of the following in order to be valid:
1. Your contact information: name, address, phone number, email address
2. Copyright owner’s full name (you must be an authorized agent)
3. URLs and/or a description of the original content
4. URLs and/or description of the infringing content (we need enough detail to be able to locate and take down the material, otherwise we won’t be able to process your request)
5. Physical or electronic signature (typing your name is sufficient)
6. A 512(f) acknowledgment:
a. You attest, under penalty of perjury, that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in this report is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; AND you are authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner; AND you understand, under 17 U.S.C. § 512(f), you may be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees, if you knowingly materially misrepresent reported material.
There are a number of DMCA takedown notice generators available on the web. We encourage you to use one to ensure the notice is compliant.
We will take down any infringing material and inform the alleged infringer. Trint will pass on a copy of your infringement notice to the user, who may submit a counter notice.
If we have taken your content down and you believe this is in error, you can submit a counter notice which we will pass on to the person who submitted the original notice.
You may contact the original notifier directly if you want to resolve it directly. If you come to an agreement, the reporter must email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll reinstate your content as quickly as we can.
Trint takes no legal responsibility for your counter notice other than passing it onto the original filer. We encourage you to seek legal council as there may be legal consequences to challenging a notice.
In accordance with data protection legislation, we will keep a copy of your records to ensure we’re complying with our own processes and procedures.
We will remove any repeat offenders from the platform after three infringement notices.
