NextGen abides by international intellectual property laws and we encourage our clients do the same and be respectful of intellectual property laws when uploading content. If you believe a client of NextGen is hosting content which is your intellectual property or infringes upon your copyright, you may contact our legal team’s designated DMCA Agent with a notice of copyright infringement.
When submitting a DMCA copyright infringement notice, include the following information:
- An electronic signature of the legal copyright owner or other individual authorized to act on behalf of the legal copyright owner.
- A list and detailed description of the material which you believe to have been infringed upon.
- The location of the material which you believe infringed upon your copyright.
- A statement, made under penalty of perjury, that the information provided in your infringement notice is accurate and complete and that you are the legal copyright owner or authorized to act on behalf of the legal copyright owner.
- A statement, made under penalty of perjury, that the material which you believe to have infringed upon your copyright, is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law.
- Contact information for you, and if you are not the designated copyright owner, the copyright owner, which includes a first and last name, email address, telephone number and postal address.
All DMCA copyright infringement notices should be submitted to NextGen’s designated agent for DMCA copyright infringement notices via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Notices sent to this address must include the required information specified above. If your request is incomplete or contains inaccurate information, it will not be responded to or acted upon.
DMCA notices will be promptly investigated and, if necessary, acted upon by our legal and abuse teams.
You may not submit a DMCA copyright infringement notice for content that is not your intellectual property. According to 17 U.S.C. § 512(f), you may be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees, if you knowingly materially misrepresent that reported material or activity is infringing. By submitting a knowingly inaccurate copyright infringement notice, you will also be liable for any costs incurred by NextGen, or the copyright holder or authorized agent of the copyright holder, as a result of NextGen suspending the hosting services of a client who had a knowingly inaccurate DMCA copyright infringement notice filed against them.
