10. Copyright Dispute Policy
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 the U.S. copyright law. If you believe in good faith that materials hosted by PatientPlus infringe your copyright, you, or your agent may send to Patient Plus a notice requesting that the material be removed or access to it be blocked. Any notification by a copyright owner or a person authorized to act on its behalf that fails to comply with requirements of the DMCA shall not be considered sufficient notice and shall not be deemed to confer upon PatientPlus actual knowledge of facts or circumstances from which infringing material or acts are evident. If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send to PatientPlus a counter-notice. All notices and counter notices must meet the then current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; for details, see http://www.loc.gov/copyright.
PatientPlus's Copyright Agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement or counter notices can be reached as follows:
137 Varick St. 2nd. Fl.
New York, NY 10013
We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice. Also, be aware that there can be penalties for false claims under the DMCA.
