2. A description of the material you claim is infringing and that you want removed or access to which you want disabled and the URL or other location of that material;
3. Your address, telephone number, and email address;
4. The following statement: "I have a good faith belief that the use of the copyrighted material I am complaining of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law (e.g., as a fair use)";
5. The following statement: "The information in this notice is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, I am the owner, or authorized to act on behalf of the owner, of the copyright or of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed"; and
6. An electronic or physical signature of the owner of the copyright or a person authorized to act on the owner's behalf.
Our designated copyright agent to receive such claims can be reached at email@example.com.
We may, in appropriate circumstances, disable or terminate the accounts of users who may be repeat infringers.
