The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) is the United States law governing claims that copyright-protected material is being distributed online. If you believe that this website is being used to host or distribute copyrighted material that you own the copyright for without your permission, first consider whether there is an exception to copyright that applies in this case (such as fair use). If after considering this you would still like to make a copyright complaint, you may submit a DMCA notice to PDB, please follow the steps outlined below. Please remember that only the copyright owner or their authorized representative may file a report of copyright infringement.
For your notice to be effective under the DMCA, you, as a complaining party, must provide all of the following information in writing to our copyright agent. Please note that this procedure is exclusively for notifying PDB that your copyrighted material has been infringed.
- An electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest;
- A description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed upon;
- A description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the site;
- Your address, telephone number, and e-mail address;
- A statement by you that you have a good-faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;
- A statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf.
