- A physical signature of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed, or of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner;
- Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
- Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit CHI to locate the material;
- Information reasonably sufficient to permit CHI to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted;
- A statement that the complaining party has 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
- A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
Upon receipt of such notification, CHI shall promptly investigate the matter, and, if appropriate, remove or disable access to the allegedly infringing material. After CHI removes or disables access to such material, CHI will notify the party who posted the allegedly infringing material of its action. The party may then provide the CHI designated agent proper "counter-notification" stating his or her authority to post the allegedly infringing material, which CHI will forward to the alleged copyright owner.
An effective counter-notification must be sent via surface mail, courier, or fax to the CHI agent designated above. The counter-notification must be in writing and include the following information:
- The party's name, address, and telephone number;
- The party's physical signature;
- Identification of the material that has been removed or disabled and the location where the material was before its removal or disablement;
- A statement, under penalty of perjury, that the party has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification; and
- A statement that the party consents to the jurisdiction of the United States District Court in his or her district, or if the party resides in a foreign country, that he or she consents to jurisdiction in any United States District Court where CHI is subject to jurisdiction, and that the party will accept service if process originates from the alleged copyright owner who provided CHI with notification, or from an agent of such a person.
Upon receipt of effective counter-notification, CHI will inform the alleged copyright owner that CHI will re-post the removed material or cease disabling access to it in ten (10) to fourteen (14) business days unless the alleged copyright owner sends a second notification to the CHI agent designated above, stating that it has filed suit against the alleged infringer.
