If There Is a Copyright Complaint Against You
If you receive a notice that a posting or portion of Your Content has been removed or suspended due to a copyright complaint, that means that we removed it at the request of a content owner. If you believe the material was removed in error, you have the option to file a CA counter-notification (the proper format for such counter-notice is defined below). When we receive a proper counter-notification, we will forward it to the party who originally complained about the alleged copyright violation. If we do not receive a notice from the original complainant within 7 business days, stating that the original complainant is seeking a court order to prevent further infringement of the content at issue, we will clear the complaint from your account’s record, and, at our discretion, we may replace the content that was removed.
How to File a CA Counter Notification
Please note that there are potentially seriously consequences for fraudulent or bad faith submissions of CA notifications or counter notifications. Such consequences may be imposed pursuant to the CA under Section 136 of Copyright Act. Before submitting a counter-notification, you should be sure that you are the actual rights holder of the content removed or that you have a good faith belief that content was erroneously removed. It is important to make sure that you understand the repercussions of submitting a false counter notification.
A proper counter notification should be sent by replying to the email notice you received, or by sending it to WIKABO's Copyright Agent as provided above, and it should contain the following:
- Your name, address, telephone number and email address
- The URLs of the content that was removed or disabled by us (you can copy and paste the link provided in the notification email)
The following statements:
I consent to the jurisdiction of Singapore Court for which my address is located, or if my address is outside of Singapore, for any judicial district in which WIKABO Pte. Ltd. is located. I will accept service of process from the claimant of copyright of infringement.
I declare, under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief that the content was removed as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.
- Your physical or electronic signature (e.g., typing your full name)
