This can be done through e-mail, fax or by phone. A transcript of your inquiry will be conveyed to the appropriate party subject to adhere to the law introduced by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA 17 U.S.C. § 512(c)(3).). Please be aware that unlawful misrepresentations or false claims of theft of intellectual property are considered extremely grievous, and are illegal according to federal law. As such, if you are found guilty of said claims, you will be held accountable for damages which culminate from said false claims.
All exchanges in regards to violation of the copyright law must include the following:
Recognition of the property in question in violation of the DMCA
Testimony from the copyright owner, or a representative expressing that the materials in question were not sanctioned for use by our website.
Confirmation that the property in question does belong to the copyright owner

If you have discovered that copyrighted material has been withdrawn in error from our website, you may send us a counter notification which must be done in great detail outlining the error and why it should have not been withdrawn. We do not make any assurances that your material will be reintegrated in to our website, but in order for your inquiry to be effective, it must include the following:
Your name, address and telephone number.
A statement you provide under good faith and perjury in violation of law.
A statement saying that you will permit a federal court jurisdiction in the preceding, that you will accept appropriate notice from the previous party.
If your counter notification is deemed to be authentic, your copyrighted material that was withdrawn will be restored within 14 business days, at our discretion. Subsequently, if your counter notification is denied, you may resubmit your application at your expense. Please be aware that any false or invalid claims in reference to the copyrighted material you may consequently be held accountable for losses including lawyer fees, additional court costs, and potential loss of business. Filing a false counter notification is considered to be perjury under United States federal law.
