DMCA Policy for Digital Millennium Copyright
Welcome to the The Important E News website (the “Site”).
Just as we anticipate others to respect our rights, we respect the intellectual property rights of others. A takedown notice may be sent to us via our DMCA Agent given below in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, Title 17, United States Code, Section 512(c), which allows copyright owners or their representatives to do so. According to the “safe harbour” provisions of the DMCA, we are qualified to assert protection from said infringement allegations as an internet service provider. You must send us notice that includes the following details in order to lodge a good faith infringement claim:
Claims of Notice of Infringement

A physical or electronic signature of the copyright owner (or someone authorized to act on behalf of the owner); 2. Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed; and

A statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on the complaining party’s behalf.

You can submit a counter-notification to us in an effort to have removed content that you received a notice of removed due to a copyright infringement claim reinstated on the website.
