How to report a claim of infringement

If you believe that an Edge Hosting customer (hereinafter a Customer) has posted material that infringes your copyright, you must submit a written claim to our designated agent. Section 512 (c)(3)(A) requires that in addition to being written and addressed to our agent, your claim of copyright infringement must provide the following information:

Edge Hosting is not required to respond to notices that do not meet the requirements of Section 512 (c)(3)(A). If you do not understand the provisions of the DMCA, we recommend that you seek independent advice from a knowledgeable authority.

When filing an infringement claim, please include any URLs identifying the allegedly infringing material along with any other information that might assist our agent’s investigation of your claim.

Upon receipt of a valid claim (i.e., a claim in which all required information is substantially provided) Edge Hosting will undertake to have the disputed material removed from public view, in accordance with Section 512 (g). We will also notify the Customer who posted the allegedly infringing material that we have removed or disabled access to that material. Edge Hosting, as a service provider, has no other role to play either in prosecuting or defending claims of infringement, and cannot be held accountable in any case for damages, regardless of whether a claim of infringement is found to be true or false.

In the event that Edge Hosting must remove, or disable access to, material on your site that is alleged to infringe another’s copyright under the DMCA, you acknowledge and agree that Edge Hosting may do so by disabling access to your entire website.

Please note: If you materially misrepresent that material infringes your copyright interests, you may be liable for damages (including court costs and attorneys fees) and could be subject to criminal prosecution for perjury. Edge Hosting will actively refer complainants who use the DMCA for improper purposes to relevant law enforcement agencies.

How to make a counter notification

If you are a Customer and you feel that material you have placed online that has been removed following an infringement complaint is in fact not an infringement, you may file a counter notification. Section 512 (g)(3) requires that to be valid, the counter notification must be written and addressed to our agent (identified above) and must provide the following information (again, the list below comes straight from the statute; if you do not understand the language please seek independent advice):

Edge Hosting is not required to respond to counter notifications that do not meet the requirements of Section 512 (g)(3).

Our designated agent will present the Customer’s counter notification to the individual who filed the DMCA infringement complaint. Once the Customer’s counter notification has been delivered, Edge Hosting is allowed under the provisions of Section 512 to restore the removed material in not less than ten nor more than fourteen days, unless the complaining party serves notice of intent to obtain a court order restraining the restoration.

It is Edge Hosting’s policy to terminate Customers who are found to be repeat infringers of the DMCA. Edge Hosting accommodates and does not interfere with “standard technical measures” as that term is defined in Section 512(i)(2).
