Copyrights Infringement Claims
IAC Search & Media asks our users to respect the intellectual property of others. Pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. sec. 512 ("the DMCA"), IAC Search & Media has designated an agent to receive Notifications of Claimed Copyright Infringement on its site, who can be reached as follows:
Through this form, or by mail at:
IAC Search & Media
Attention: General Counsel
555 12th Street, Suite 500
Oakland, CA 94607
If you believe in good faith that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide IAC Search & Media's copyright agent the following:
In lieu of preparing your own Notification, you may print this Notification of Claimed Copyright Infringement form, complete and sign it, and mail it to our copyright agent at the above address.
Pursuant to the DMCA, once we receive a properly prepared Notification asserting copyright infringement, we will de-link the allegedly infringing site until we receive a properly prepared Counter-Notification. Even after we de-link an allegedly infringing site, it is possible that the site will reappear once a further search is run, due to the technology that many search engines employ in conducting searches for our users. Therefore, a more effective way to remove allegedly infringing material is by filing a Notification of Claimed Copyright Infringement with the Internet service provider that hosts the website.
If a Notification of Claimed Copyright Infringement has been filed with us against you, IAC Search & Media will advise you of that fact. If you would like to file a Counter-Notification of Claimed Copyright Infringement, we will provide you with a mail-in form that accompanies our letter to you advising you of the claimed infringement.
You may want to seek independent legal counsel before filing a notification or counter-notification.
