7. COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT AND THE DIGITAL MILLENNIUM COPYRIGHT ACT
Reigning Champs respects the valid intellectual property rights of others. We will respond to allegations of copyright infringement with respect to content or materials on the Website, including without limitation User Materials, in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the “DMCA”).
The DMCA provides a process for copyright owners to give notification to online service providers concerning alleged copyright infringement. When Reigning Champs receives a valid DMCA notification, we respond by removing (or disabling access to) the allegedly infringing content or materials. After removing such content or materials, Reigning Champs will take reasonable steps to contact the owner of the removed content or materials so that a DMCA counter notification may be submitted. After receiving a valid counter notification, Reigning Champs generally restores the allegedly infringing content or materials, unless we receive further notice from the copyright owner that a legal action has been filed seeking a court order to restrain the alleged copyright infringer from engaging in the allegedly infringing activity.
If you are a copyright owner, or an agent of a copyright owner, and you believe that any content or materials on the Website, including without limitation User Materials, violate your copyright, you may submit a notification pursuant to the DMCA by providing our DMCA agent with the following information in writing (please see 17 U.S.C. §512(c)(3) for further detail): (i) your physical or electronic signature; (ii) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works; (iii) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to permit Reigning Champs to locate the material; (iv) information reasonably sufficient to permit Reigning Champs to contact you, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an email address; (v) a statement that you have 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, (vi) a statement under penalty of perjury that the information in the notification is accurate, and that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the allegedly infringed copyright.
Reigning Champs' designated agent to receive notifications of claimed copyright infringement under the DMCA is:
Reigning Champs Football LLC
Attn: DMCA Notice
Address: 1333 N Kingsbury St, Chicago, IL 60642
For the purposes of clarification, only notices pursuant to the DMCA should be directed to Reigning Champs’ DMCA agent. All other questions or concerns about the Website or these Terms and Conditions should be directed to Reigning Champs as set forth at the end of these Terms and Conditions.
If you believe that your User Materials have been improperly removed because they are not infringing, because you have authorization from the actual copyright owner or the owner's agent and/or because you have the right to use the User Materials under applicable law, you may send a written counter notification to Reigning Champs' DMCA agent with the following information (please see 17 U.S.C. §512(g)(3) for further detail): (i) your physical or electronic signature; (ii) identification of the User Materials that have been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location(s) at which the User Materials appeared before such User Materials were removed or disabled; (iii) a statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that such User Materials were removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled; (iv) your name, address, telephone number and, if available, email address; and, (v) a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located or, if your address is outside of the United States, to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the Southern District of New York, and that you will accept service of process from the party that provided notification to Reigning Champs of the alleged infringement.
If Reigning Champs' DMCA agent receives a valid counter notification pursuant to the DMCA, we may send a copy of such counter notification to the original complaining party and we may inform such party that we may replace the removed or disabled content in ten (10) business days. Unless Reigning Champs' DMCA agent receives further notice from the original complaining party that it has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain the allegedly infringing activity, we may replace or re-enable access to the allegedly infringing content or materials not less than ten (10), nor more than fourteen (14), business days after receipt of the valid counter notification.
