If you believe that materials on Commiss.io's services infringes a copyright held by yourself or a party to whom you are an authorized representative for, please send a notice of copyright infringement ("takedown notification") to the Designated Agent as outlined at the end of this document. The notification should consist of the following:

Submitting a Counter-Notification

If you believe that a DMCA takedown notification against you was invalid, you may file a counter-notification with Commiss.io pursuant to 17 U.S.C. § 512(g). This is a very serious step. You may wish to consult legal counsel before filing a counter-notification, as the other party will be left with no choice but to sue you.

The requirements for a counter-notification are outlined in 17 U.S.C. § 512(g)(3). To file a counter-notification, please submit a notification to the Designated Agent, contact information at the end of this document, consisting of the following:

  2. Your name, telephone number, mailing address, and emailing address
  3. A statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court to which you are located, or if you live outside of the United States, to the Federal District Court of the Northern District of California, and that you will accept service of process from the original claimaint

Upon receipt of a valid-counter notification, Commiss.io will forward it to the party who filed the original takedown notification. The original notifying party will then have 10 days to notify us that they have filed legal action related to the allgedly infringing material. If we do not receive such a notification after 10 days, we will restore access to the material until an injunction requiring the removal or disabling of the material.
