The Resilient Activist, Inc. (the Organization) respects the intellectual property rights of others and expects our users to do the same.
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you have a good faith belief that material posted to this site, TheResilientActivist.org (the “Site”), infringes your copyright, you (or your agent) may send the Organization a notice requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked.
In addition, if you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send the Organization counter-notice.
If you think someone is infringing your copyright on our platforms, let us know.
If you believe that one of our users has violated your copyright, you should notify our agent in writing. In order for us to take action, you must do the following in your notice:
- identify your copyrighted work that you believe is being infringed
- identify the item on our service that you think is infringing your work and include sufficient information about where the material is located (for example, a URL or link to a relevant page) so that we can easily find it
- provide us with a way to contact you, such as your address, telephone number, or e-mail
- provide a statement that you believe in good faith that the item you have identified as infringing is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law to be used on the platform
- provide a statement that the information you provide in your notice is accurate, and that (under penalty of perjury), you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner whose work is being infringed
Notices and counter-notices must meet statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA. You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the notice requirements of the DMCA, your notice may not be valid and the Organization has no obligation to respond to notices that fail to comply with the applicable law. One place to find more information is the U.S. Copyright Office Website, currently located at http://www.loc.gov/copyright.
In accordance with the DMCA, the Organization has designated an agent to receive notification of alleged copyright infringement in accordance with the DMCA. Any written Notification of Claimed infringement should comply with Title 17, United States Code, Section 512(c)(3)(A) and should be provided in writing to our designated agent as follows:
Agent: Jean Lamfers, General Counsel
Address: 7003 Martindale, Shawnee KS 66218
Tel: (913) 962-8200
Please note: If you materially misrepresent that online material, product, or activity is infringing your copyrights, you may be liable for damages (including court costs and attorneys’ fees) and could be subject to criminal prosecution for perjury. We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice.
In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable law, the Organization has adopted a policy of, in appropriate circumstances and in its sole discretion, terminating access of any user that the Organization finds to be a repeat infringer of the copyrights of others. The Organization may also, in its sole discretion, limit or fully terminate access to the Site of any registered user infringing the intellectual property rights of others, regardless of whether such registered user is a repeat offender or not. In its sole discretion, the Organization may also remove content that may be infringing on another person’s intellectual property rights with or without notice to the potential infringer.
