The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) protects people who make content from having others steal it and post it on the internet.
The law goes after websites whose owners don’t know who wrote each piece of content or who uses the site as a place to post and share content.
Our policy is to react to infringement notices and take the right steps.
These Digital Millennium Copyright Act rules cover the “biollin.com” website (“Website” or “Service”) and all of its related products and services (collectively, “Services”). They explain how the Website operator (Operator, “we,” “us,” or “our”) handles copyright infringement complaints and how you (you) can make a complaint.
We think protecting intellectual property is very important, and we ask our users and their authorized representatives to do the same. We quickly react to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement that follow the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) rules of 1998. You can read the DMCA’s full text on the U.S. Copyright Office website.
What to consider before submitting a copyright complaint
Please keep this in mind: if you’re unsure if the content you’re reporting is illegal, you might want to talk to a lawyer before sending us your report.
The DMCA says that in the copyright infringement notification, you have to give your details to ensure that your personal information stays private.
Notifications of infringement
As required by the DMCA, if you are a copyright owner or an agent of a copyright owner and think that any content on our Services violates your copyrights, you may send us a written notice (“Notification”) using the information below. The DMCA says that all of these Notifications must follow its rules.
Making a DMCA complaint is the first step in a set judicial process. Your complaint will be reviewed to ensure it is correct, valid, and full. If your complaint meets these requirements, we may remove or limit access to material that you say violates the law as a reaction.
Suppose we remove or limit access to materials or close an account because of a Notification of alleged infringement. In that case, we will try to contact the impacted user and let them know about the removal or limitation of access.
Aside from anything in this Policy that says otherwise, the Operator can choose not to do anything when it receives a DMCA copyright infringement report if it does not follow all the rules set out by the DMCA for such notifications.
The steps in this Policy don’t stop us from using any other tools we may have to deal with possible violations.
Changes and amendments
We may change this Policy or any terms that apply to the Website and Services at any time, for any reason. There will be a notice on the website’s home page and an email sent to you when we do. We may also give you notice in other ways, such as through the information you provided for getting in touch.
Anyone who posts a new version of this Policy will be bound by it immediately unless something else is stated. If you keep using the Website and Services after the new Policy goes into effect (or do something else said at that time), you agree to the changes.
