Miva respects the intellectual property rights of others, and we ask the same of our customers. It is our policy to promptly investigate notices of alleged copyright infringement, regarding materials hosted on our system or network, and promptly remove the infringing material. Please note, however, that we will only respond to notices that substantially comply with the requirements set forth in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and as provided in the Copyright Infringement Notification form below.
If you believe that a website that we host is infringing on your copyrights, please complete the Copyright Infringement Notification form on our website. Or, if you prefer to submit a freeform notice by mail or email, please make sure that it includes all of the information requested in our online form, and is signed by a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the exclusive right to the allegedly infringed work. Notices of infringement may be sent to:
Attn: Copyright Agent
16769 Bernardo Center Drive STE 1-828
San Diego, CA 92128
In response to a compliant notice of alleged infringement, we may remove or disable access to the material or website in question, as well as provide the website's owner with a complete copy of said notice. If the website owner files a counter notification, we will notify you of the counter notification and you will be given between 10 and 14 business days to bring a lawsuit in district court to restrain the infringing activity. If you do not notify us of the filing of your court action within this time period, the allegedly infringing material will be restored.
Before completing this form, please note that, under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, any person who knowingly misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be liable for any resulting damages (including costs and attorneys' fees) incurred by the alleged infringer, the copyright owner/licensee, and Miva, Inc.
