Procedure for Making and Responding to Claims of Copyright Infringement

It is the policy of HPK to respond to claims of copyright infringement.

Pursuant to the DMCA, notifications of claimed copyright infringement by third parties should be sent to HPK ‘s Designated Agent. If you believe that your copyrighted work has been infringed under U.S. copyright law and is accessible on this Site, please notify us by contacting our Designated Agent. Even if you believe that the alleged infringing work was not posted by a third party, please send all notifications of claimed copyright infringement to HPK ‘s Designated Agent listed below.

To be effective under the DMCA, notification of claims of copyright infringement by third parties must be a written communication to HPK ”s Designated Agent that includes the following:

  1. A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
  2. Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
  3. Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit HPK to locate the material;
  4. Information reasonably sufficient to permit HPK to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted;
  5. A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
  6. A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

 

Upon receipt of a valid notification of alleged copyright infringement by a third party, HPK shall remove or disable access to the material identified in the notice, forward the written notification to the alleged infringer, and take reasonable efforts to notify the alleged infringer that it has removed or disabled access to this material.

You should be aware that, under the DMCA, claimants who make misrepresentations concerning copyright infringement may be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees, incurred by the alleged infringer or by HPK , if injured by relying upon such misrepresentation in removing or disabling access to the material or activity claimed to be infringing.

If a notice of copyright infringement has been filed against you, you may file a counter notification with the Designated Agent at the address listed above.

You should be aware that the DMCA provides substantial penalties for a false counter notice filed in response to a notice of copyright infringement. Claimants who make misrepresentations in their the counter notification statement may be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees, incurred by any copyright owner or copyright owner’s authorized licensee, or by HPK , if injured by relying upon such misrepresentation in replacing the removed material or ceasing to disable access to it.
