Only DMCA notices should go to the University’s Copyright Agent designated above. Communications regarding other matters directed to that address or DMCA notices not complying with DMCA requirements may be ignored.

When we receive a valid DMCA notification of allegedly infringing material on our website, we will endeavor to taking down the allegedly infringing content. We will then take reasonable steps to contact the owner of the removed content so a counter-notification may be filed. Upon receipt of a valid counter-notification, we will generally restore the content in question, unless we receive notice from you, the notifying copyright owner, that a legal action has been filed seeking a court order restraining the alleged infringer from engaging in the infringing activity. The University may provide copies of these notices to participants in the dispute or to any other third party, at our discretion and as required by law.

If you believe an account holder or user is a repeat infringer, please follow the instructions above to provide the University’s DMCA Copyright Agent with that information.
