Copyright Policy

 

Last updated: November 18, 2016

Native Social Network LLC (hereafter, the “Company,” “we,” or “us”) respects the intellectual property rights of others and expects its users to do the same. Our Terms of Use requires that information posted on www.TheNativeInfluence.com (the “Service”) be accurate, lawful, and not in violation of the rights of any third parties. The Company may, in appropriate circumstances and at our sole discretion, disable or terminate the user accounts of persons who are apparently infringing on the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of others. To promote these objectives, the Company provides a process for submission of complaints by copyright owners concerning content posted or otherwise shared by users on the Service. Our policy and procedures are described and/or referenced below.

1. COMPLAINTS REGARDING COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT

In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998, codified in 17 U.S.C. § 512, et seq. (“DMCA”), the text of which may be found on the U.S. Copyright Office website at https://www.copyright.gov/legislation/dmca.pdf, the Company will respond expeditiously to claims of copyright infringement committed using the Service that are reported to the Company’s Designated Copyright Agent, identified below.

Please note that whether or not we disable access to or remove the allegedly infringing content, the Company may also attempt to forward the written notification, including the complainant’s contact information, to the specific user who posted, uploaded, or created the content or take other reasonable steps to notify that user that the Company has received notice of an alleged violation of intellectual property rights.

If you are not sure whether material on the Service infringes on your copyright, please consult with an attorney before filing a DMCA notification. Misrepresenting that material infringes on your copyright may subject you to liability for damages.

1.1. HOW TO REPORT A COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT

The Company has also designated an agent to receive notices of claimed copyright infringement.

  1. Identify the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed;
