Pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, Title 17, United States Code, Section 512(c), the copyright owner or his agent may submit a takedown notice to us through our DMCA Agent listed below. As an Internet service provider, we are entitled to claim immunity from claims of said infringement pursuant to the “safe harbor” provisions of the DMCA.
