To File a Notice, Please Provide the Following Information

Authorized Signature

A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

Identification of the Infringed Work

A clear description of the copyrighted work you claim has been infringed.

Location of the Infringing Material

Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity, with sufficient detail to allow us to locate the material on our website.

Contact Information

Your address, telephone number, and email address, so that we can contact you about your complaint.

Fair Use Consideration

Please consider the principles of fair use as mandated by law. It's crucial to assess whether the usage of the material in question might legally qualify as fair use, involving aspects like criticism, commentary, news reporting, teaching, or research. We urge you to thoroughly review these criteria before proceeding with your report. While we are committed to addressing legitimate copyright concerns, we also firmly uphold the legal rights of fair use and will not entertain claims that disregard this important legal doctrine.

Accuracy of Information

A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

Proof of Authority

If available, a scanned physical document that proves you are or you are representing the copyright owner.

Public Knowledge

Before submitting a DMCA report to a Secologist, we ask you to consider if the content in question might be part of the public domain or widely recognized as general knowledge. This is particularly relevant for information that is commonly known or falls under educational, factual, or historical categories. Our platform often deals with content that serves to inform and educate, which may not be subject to copyright protection. We encourage a thoughtful review to determine if the material truly infringes on exclusive rights or is simply disseminating information that is freely available and non-proprietary. At Secologist, while we diligently protect valid copyrights, we also advocate for the lawful sharing and distribution of public knowledge.

Submission of Notice

  • Please send your DMCA notice to [email protected].

  • Notices should be submitted by the copyright owner or an authorized agent.

  • We may respond to your notice by removing or disabling access to the allegedly infringing material.

  • Under Section 512(f) of the DMCA, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability.
