2. Provide the name and URL of the material you claim is infringing on the copyrighted work listed in item 1.

3. Provide information we may use to identify and contact you (first and last name, mailing address, phone number, and email address).

4. Include the following statement: "I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials described above as allegedly infringing is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law."

5. Include the following statement: "I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed."

We may reinstate the material in question based on the counter notification.

We strongly advise against filing malicious or false claims. Under Section 512(f) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, any person who knowingly misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability for damages, including costs and attorneys' fees.
