Copyright Policy and Allegations of Copyright Infringement.
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 TVC and appearing on the Internet, such as on this Website, infringe your copyright rights, you or your agent may send TVC written 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 TVC 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 TVC a counter-notice. All notices and counter notices must meet the then current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright for details.
If you believe that any other person using this Website has violated any terms in this Agreement, please notify us immediately, specifically identifying the conduct or materials at issue. You may contact us by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
