The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (“DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that their rights under U.S. copyright law have been infringed on the Internet. Under the law, copyright owners who believe that their rights have been infringed by unauthorized use of their protected works appearing online may contact the service provider hosting the material in question, directly or through their authorized agents, and request that the infringing material be removed or access to it disabled.

Association Media Group LLC. takes allegations of copyright infringement very seriously.

Please note that only mail correspondence is noted as valid for proper notification, however we can expedite a request for removal via the email address above. Please include all the required elements for the written notification (listed below) in your email, excepting the signature requirement, which may be gathered later through written correspondence or electronic signature.

Specific requirements for proper notification of claimed infringement are set forth in the DMCA (see 17 U.S.C. Sec. 512(c)(3)). Valid notification must be a written communication that includes all of the following elements:

  • Signature of copyright owner or person authorized to act on behalf of the owner;

  • Identification of copyrighted work claimed to be infringed;

A valid counter notification is a written communication that incorporates the following elements:

  • A physical or electronic signature;

  • 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;

  • A statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification;

  • Your name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of federal district court for the judicial district in which the address is located, or if your address is outside of the U.S., for any judicial district in which the service provider may be found, and that you will accept service of process from the complainant.
