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 investigate, remove the material, and make a good faith attempt to contact the user who uploaded the material, via 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 important 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. In addition, 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.

Please follow these steps to file a notice:

  1. Verify that the content in question is hosted by us. If not, please contact the appropriate web host with complaints.
  2. Contact the author directly. Go to the content in question and leave a comment with your complaint to see if the matter can be resolved directly between you and the author.
  3. Send your complaint to our designated agent via the form below, if the issue cannot be resolved directly with the author.

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.

      To prevent fraudulent removal requests from people impersonating others, trying to harm competitors, or improperly seeking to suppress legal information, we need to verify the identity of the person on whose behalf the request is made (the relevant individual). A passport or other government-issued ID is not required. You may obscure parts of the document (e.g. ID number) as long as the remaining information identifies the relevant individual. You may also obscure any photograph in the identification document, unless you are asking for the removal of pages that include photographs of the relevant individual. We will use this information solely to help us assess and document the authenticity of your request and will delete the copy within a month of closing your removal request except as otherwise required by law.
    • Location (URL) of the unauthorized material on our website (NOT simply the primary URL of the site - www.atmostfear-entertainment.com; you must provide the full and exact permalink of the post, page, or media file where the content appears.

      We will use the personal information that you supply on this form (including your e-mail address and any ID information) and any personal information you may submit in further correspondence for the purposes of processing your request and meeting our legal obligations. We may share details of your request with data protection authorities, but only when they require these details to investigate or review a decision that we have made. That will normally be because you have chosen to contact your national DPA about our decision. Where URL(s) have been removed from our website results as a result of your request, we may provide details to the relevant developer(s) of the URL(s) that have been removed.
