DMCA Notice & Takedown Policy and Procedures
We respect the intellectual property of others, and we anticipate that the sites we index do the same. As part of our effort to assist in the protection of intellectual property rights, this website (“SITE”) therefore voluntarily chooses to comply with the notice and Takedown requirements of 17 U.S.C. § 512 of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”).
Under that statute, we qualify as a “Service Provider.” Specifically, the SITE functions as an information location tool under 17 U.S.C. § 512(d) in that it merely refers or links users to content found on third-party websites not under our control.
Under the DMCA, we are entitled to assert certain protections from claims of copyright infringement, commonly referred to as the “safe harbor” provisions.
We therefore adopt the following Notice and Takedown Policy relating to claims of copyright infringement concerning content linked to by the SITE.
