(11) Rights infringement
We act as a host platform for the display of user generated Clips. We do not review Clips before they are submitted and/or shared. Accordingly, we operate a "notice and takedown" procedure. If you believe that any User Content contains a defamatory statement or you are a rights owner and you believe that User Content infringes your copyright or other intellectual property rights, you must provide us with a written notice which states:
in the event of a defamatory statement:
- a. that you have identified User Content on the Site and/or App which you consider is causing or contributing to the publication of a defamatory statement;
- b. a description of the words which you consider to be defamatory;
- c. an explanation as to why the words are untrue and what you believe the true position is;
in the event of infringement of copyright or other intellectual property right:
- a. that you are the rights owner or are authorised to act on the rights owner's behalf;
- b. that you have identified User Content on the Site and/or App which infringes your copyright or other intellectual property right (or infringes the right of a third party on whose behalf you are entitled to act, if applicable) and you believe in good faith that use of the User Content in the manner complained of is not authorised by you, the rights owner's agent or by law;
- c. a description of the protected work that you claim has been infringed which should include, the type of work (such as a photograph or a sound recording) and any relevant further details (such as the title and date of publication, as applicable);
- d. a description of the way in which your protected work has been infringed;
in every case:
- a. information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the User Content in question on the Site and/or App (including a URL specifying the date the Site and/or App was accessed and/or a screen shot);
- b. information that will enable us to contact you, such as your name, postal address, telephone number and email address (these contact details will also be provided to the alleged infringer so that they may contact you directly, in order to attempt to resolve the complaint amicably);
- c. your electronic or physical signature (which may be a scanned copy); and
- d. that the information in the notification is true and accurate.
Completed notices should be sent to [email protected]
This 'notice and takedown' procedure is regulated by statute. There may be negative consequences if you falsely allege User Content is infringing copyright or if you send an infringement notice to us in bad faith. We suggest that you take legal advice before sending any such notice, if you are unsure about your rights in the User Content, or whether there has been an infringement of your rights.
If you believe that we have removed User Content in error, you may send us a written counter-notice which states:
- details of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled;
- information reasonably sufficient to permit us to know where the material in question had been located on the Site and/or App (including a URL and/or screen shot);
- a statement that you believe in good faith that the material that you have identified has been removed by mistake and your reasons for believing this;
- information that will enable us to contact you, such as your name, a postal address, telephone number and, if available, an email address; and
- a statement that you agree to be contacted by the person (or an authorised representative of such person) who gave us the notice in the first place.
Completed counter-notices should then be sent to [email protected]
We have a policy of terminating the user accounts of repeat perpetrators. A repeat perpetrator is a user who has submitted two or more items of User Content for which O2 receives an infringement notice in accordance with this section.
