CLAIMS REGARDING COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENTS
Pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (17 U.S.C. § 512), CES has implemented procedures for receiving written notification of claimed copyright infringement. We also have designated an agent to receive notices of claimed copyright infringement. If you believe in good faith that your copyright has been infringed, you may submit a notice to firstname.lastname@example.org. To be effective, a notice must be a written communication provided to CES’s Copyright Agent and must contain:
- An electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest;
- A description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed;
- A description specifying the location of the material that you claim is infringing;
- Your telephone number and e-mail address;
- A statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
- A statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf.
Our designated copyright agent for notice of alleged copyright infringement appearing on the website is: CES, 2516 Winningham Road, Chapel Hill, North Carolina 27516, Attention: Intellectual Property Specialist, with an email address at: email@example.com.
