Published: 28th November 2010 | Updated: 28th November 2010
If you believe that content available by means of the Website (as defined in our Terms of Service) infringes one or more of your copyrights, please notify us by means of an emailed notice (“Infringement Notice”) providing the information
described below to the email address listed below. If VastPark takes action in response to an Infringement Notice, it will make a good faith attempt to contact the party that made such content available by means of the most recent email address,
if any, provided by such party to VastPark.
Your Infringement Notice may be forwarded to the party that made the content available or to third parties such asChillingEffects.org.
Please be advised that you will be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) if you materially misrepresent that a product or activity is infringing your copyrights. Thus, if you are not sure content located on or linked-to by
the Website infringes your copyright, you should consider first contacting an attorney.
Please follow these steps to file a notice:
1. Verify that the webpage in question is hosted by VastPark. We have no control over webpages that say “Powered by VastPark.” Those blogs use the open source VastPark software and are not hosted by us. Please contact the appropriate
web host with complaints. We only host blogs that have “VastPark.com” in their URL or that say “powered by VastPark.com” on the site.
2. Contact the user or community directly. Go to the webpage post in question and leave a comment with your complaint to see if the matter can be resolved directly between you and the community
3. Send your complain to: team @ VastPark . com. If the issue cannot be resolved directly with the user or community, send us your complaint as plain text email without attachments (email attachments may be discarded) and
include the following (or it will be deemed invalid):
An electronic signature of the copyright owner or a person authorized to act on their behalf;
An identification of the copyright claimed to have been infringed;
A description of the nature and exact location of the content that you claim to infringe your copyright, in sufficient detail to permit VastPark to find and positively identify that content; for example we require a link to the specific webpage
(not just the name of the community or user) that contains the content and a description of which specific portion of the webpage – an image, a link, the text, etc – your complaint refers to;
Your name, address, telephone number and email address; and
A statement by you: (a) that you believe in good faith that the use of the content that you claim to infringe your copyright is not authorized by law, or by the copyright owner or such owner’s agent; and (b) under penalty of perjury, that all
of the information contained in your Infringement Notice is accurate, and that you are either the copyright owner or a person authorized to act on their behalf.
If a DMCA notice is valid, we are required by law to respond to it by disabling access to the allegedly infringing content. If you are a VastPark.com user and access to portions of your website have been disabled for this reason, we will notify
you. You then have the option to send us a counter-notice stating why your content does not infringe copyrights and asking for access to be reinstated. Counter notices need to be sent to team @ VastPark . com as plain text emails without attachments
(email attachments may be discarded) and include the following or they will be deemed invalid:
Your name, address, phone number and physical or electronic signature;
Identification of the allegedly infringing content and its location before disabling access; and
A statement under penalty of perjury explaining why the content was removed by mistake or misidentification.
