If you are not sure whether material available online infringes your copyright, we suggest that you first contact an attorney. Copyright laws are complex, content may be used without the copyright owner's permission in certain instances. Copyright is the legal right of people to prevent others from copying their works. Copyright infringement is the unauthorized, or unlicensed, copying of a work subject to copyright. (See 17 U.S.C. §501 et seq)
INetU handles all copyright complaints presented to us pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA"). It is important to know that these procedures must be adhered to without exception. Please be aware that you may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys' fees) if you misrepresent information in a submitted DMCA notice.
