Investigating copyright infringement issues faced by authors but also reinforcing penalties for offenders
We at Atmostfear Entertainment S.A.S. (“we”, “us” or “our”) are committed to protecting intellectual property rights of others. This Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) notice applies to our website, including our associated mobile applications (“apps”), owned and controlled by us.
We respect the intellectual property rights of others, and we ask you to do the same. We may, in appropriate circumstances and at our discretion, terminate your ability to use the services offered on our website and/or terminate your access to our website for users who infringe the intellectual property rights of others.
If you believe that material available on our website, infringes on your copyright(s), please notify us by submitting a DMCA notice. After we receive a valid and complete notice, we will analyse legal complaints and requests for removal of our online published materials. Shortly after we receive a proper copyright infringement complaint, we will suspend the material publish, initiate and conduct an internal investigation, and make a good faith attempt to contact the user who uploaded the material in question, through e-mail.
We are a publishing platform where users often use copyrighted materials in commentary, journalism, or transform the materials into something original. As such, before submitting a report notice, it is essential to consider whether the material used falls under fair use. If you are not sure whether content located on our website infringes on your copyright, or if it is subject to fair use protections, you should first consider seeking legal advice.
Your DMCA notice will be forwarded to the party that made the material available, and also may be sent to third-parties such as Lumen. A note will also be placed on the website in question detailing the name of the copyright owner who submitted the takedown notice.
Additionally, you are required to consider the possible fair use implications, as a result of Lenz v. Universal. We reserve the right to challenge abuses of the DMCA process, and your use of this form does not waive that right.
If you believe that your work is the subject of copyright and/or trademark infringement and appears on our website, please provide our designated agent with all of the following information by filling in the form below with the following information:
All notifications of claimed copyright or trademark infringement will be sent to our designated agent.
Please note that for purposes of copyright infringement under Section 512(f) of the Copyright Act, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability.
We will notify you that we have removed or disabled access to copyright-protected material that you provided if such removal is according to a valid DMCA take-down notice that we have received.
If you receive such notice from us, you may provide us with a counter-notification in writing to our designated agent that includes all of the following information:
As required by the DMCA, we have the policy to terminate users or content that we consider being repeated infringers. Although we will not share the specifics of our repeat infringer policy, we believe that it strikes the right balance: it protects the rights of copyright owners and protects legitimate users from wrongful termination.
Please note that notices that are successfully countered, rejected on fair use grounds, or deemed to be fraudulent are not counted against a user or our website.
