Digital Millennium Copyright Act Policy

Notice and Takedown Procedure

It is Ictus’s policy to respond to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with the United States Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”).  This policy describes the information that should be present in these notices. 


Ictus expects that all of its Competition participants will comply with applicable copyright laws.  However, if Ictus receives appropriate notice of claimed copyright infringement, Ictus will work to remove or disable access to the material in question and take other appropriate action regardless of whether Ictus might be liable for such infringement.

If Ictus removes or disables access to material in response to an infringement notice, it will make a good-faith attempt to contact the party that posted the material at issue so that such party may take its own action under Sections 512(g)(2) and (3) of the DMCA.  Ictus may also document any notice of alleged infringement.

Designated Agent

Ictus’s Designated Agent to receive notification of alleged infringement under the DMCA is:

Alexander Serio

Ictus Music, Inc.

150 Monument Road,

Suite 207, PMB 0084

Bala Cynwyd, PA 19004

alex@ictuscompetition.com

When Ictus receives a proper notice of alleged infringement, it will take action as outlined in this policy and in the DMCA.

Infringement Notification

If you believe that your intellectual property rights have been violated in connection with material posted on one of Ictus’s websites, please provide Ictus’s Designated Agent with the following information, preferably by e-mail:

  1. Identification of the copyrighted material associated with the rights you believe have been infringed;
  2. Identification of the material on Ictus’s website that you believe infringes on your intellectual property rights;
  3. Your contact information, including an address, telephone number, and email address at which you can be contacted;
  4. These statements:

      a. "I 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"

      b. "I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate, and that I am the              copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly                infringed"; and

   5. A signature of the owner or a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an intellectual property            right that is allegedly infringed.

IMPORTANT: you may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) if you materially misrepresent that material is infringing your copyrights.  If you are uncertain about whether material available on Ictus’s websites interferes with your intellectual property rights, Ictus strongly suggests that you contact an attorney before communicating with Ictus.

Repeat Infringers

Pursuant to Section 512(i)(1)(a) of the DMCA, Ictus will, when necessary, disable and/or delete the accounts of repeat infringers.
