What is the Digital Millennium Copyright Act?
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) creates a standardized process for copyright holders (including software developers) to ask Funnel Rolodex to take down infringing content. You can find more information about the DMCA at the U.S. Copyright Office's official website.
As with all legal matters, it is always best to consult with a legal professional about your specific questions or situation. We strongly encourage you to do so before taking any action that might impact your rights. Our guidance is NOT legal advice and should not be taken as such.
Before You Start
Tell the Truth. The DMCA requires that you swear to the facts in your copyright complaint under penalty of perjury. It is a federal crime to intentionally lie in a sworn declaration. (See U.S. Code, Title 18, Section 1621.) Submitting false information could also result in civil liability—that is, you could get sued for financial damages.
Investigate.Users pour their hearts and souls into the they create on Funnel Rolodex. Filing a DMCA complaint is a serious legal allegation that carries real consequences for real people. Because of that, we ask that you conduct a thorough investigation and consult with an attorney before submitting a takedown to make sure that the use isn't actually permissible.
Ask Nicely First. A great first step before sending us a takedown notice is to try contacting the user directly. Ask them to remove the work and give them time to do so. If the user does not respond or remove the work then proceeding with a DMCA request is the next step.
No Bots. You should have a trained professional evaluate the facts of every takedown notice you send. If you are outsourcing your efforts to a third party, make sure you know how they operate, and make sure they are not using automated bots to submit complaints in bulk. These complaints are often invalid and may not result in infringing content being removed.
You May Receive a Counter Notice. Any user affected by your takedown notice may decide to submit a counter notice. If they do, we will re-enable their content within 14 days unless you notify us that you have initiated legal action seeking to restrain the user from engaging in infringing activity relating to the content on Funnel Rolodex.
We Are Not The Judge! Funnel Rolodex has very little discretion in the process other than determining whether the notices meet the minimum requirements of the DMCA. It is up to the parties (and their lawyers) to evaluate the merit of the claims, bearing in mind that notices must be made under penalty of perjury.
