How to Appeal Claims of Copyright Infringement
Search Magnet Local™ respects the copyrights of others, and we prohibit users from uploading, posting or otherwise transmitting on the Search Magnet Local™ profile website any materials that violate another party’s copyrights. Among other things, this means that we remove content that is reported to us pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (17 U.S.C. § 512), also known as the DMCA.
However, while Search Magnet Local™ does not tolerate copyright infringement, we also do not tolerate false claims of infringement. If you believe that
content that you posted on the site was removed by mistake, you can file a DMCA counter-notice by using our counter-notice form. So long as everything appears to be in order with your counter-notice, we will forward it to the complaining rights owner. The DMCA then allows us to restore your content if the rights owner does not file a court action against you within 10 business days of receiving the copy of your counter-notice.
Please be aware that the DMCA makes users liable for materially misrepresenting in a counter-notice that their content was removed by mistake. Therefore, if you are not confident of your claims, we suggest you seek legal advice before filing a DMCA counter-notice with us.
