As per the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, Title 17, United States Code, Section 512(c), copyright owners or their agents can submit a takedown notice to us through our DMCA Agent provided below. Being an internet service provider, we are eligible to seek immunity from such infringement claims as per the “safe harbor” provisions of the DMCA.
