Digital Millenimum Copyright Act (DMCA) Policy
It is the policy of AudioPump, Inc. to respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement, in compliance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and other applicable laws. This page describes how to serve a Notice of Infringing Material and what to do if any material you have placed on any AudioPump, Inc. websites and services becomes the subject of such a notice.
Before serving either a Notice of Infringing Material or a Counter-Notification, you may wish to contact a lawyer to better understand your rights and obligations under the DMCA and other laws. The following notice requirements are intended to comply with AudioPump, Inc.'s rights and obligations under the DMCA and do not constitute legal advice.
Our response to these notices may include removing or disabling access to material claimed to be the subject of infringing activity and/or terminating subscribers. If we remove or disable subscriber access in response to such a notice, we may make an attempt to contact the owner of the affected account so that they may make a counter notification. We may also document notices of alleged infringement on which we act. Your complaint will also be a matter of record. A copy of the legal notice may be sent to one or more third parties who may then make it available to the public.
Please be advised that you may be liable for damages if you materially misrepresent that content or activity is infringing your copyrights.
If you are a copyright owner or an agent thereof and you believe that any content on one of AudioPump, Inc.'s sites infringes upon your copyrights, you may submit a notice pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") by providing our Copyright Agent the following information in writing:
- Your physical or electronic signature
- Identification of the copyrighted work or works claimed to have been infringed
- Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing that copyrighted work, and URLs or similar information sufficient to permit us to locate that material on our websites and services
- Information to permit AudioPump, Inc.'s agent to contact you: your address, telephone number and email address
- 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
- A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are the owner, or are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright that is allegedly infringed.
Please also note that AudioPump, Inc.'s Content Delivery Network (CDN) service is intended for live or as-live streaming. Content is not stored beyond the brief amount of time required to facilitate the buffering of network data. While we may choose to prevent repeat copyright offenders from using the service, there is no content stored permanently or long-term on the CDN, as such content cannot and does not need to be removed.
