If you believe in good faith that materials on the Services infringes your rights under U.S. copyright law, you may send ThriftBooks a notice requesting that the material be removed. The notice must include the following information:

      1. The signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;

      2. Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed;

      3. Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information that reasonably allows us to locate the material within the Services;

      4. Your name, address, telephone number, and email address (if available);

      5. A representation that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by you (the copyright owner), your agent, or the law; and

      6. A representation that the information in the notice is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

      Please be advised that ThriftBooks will not respond to complaints that do not meet the requirements above. If ThriftBooks determines that the materials alleged to infringe your rights do not require removal, ThriftBooks will remove those materials only pursuant to a court order that declares the content or use of the materials unlawful.

    2. Counter-Notices

      If you believe that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send us a counter-notice. Counter-notices must include the following information:

      1. Your name, address, and telephone number;

      2. A description of the source of the content that was removed;

      3. A representation under penalty of perjury that you believe that the content was removed in error;

      4. A representation that you consent to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located, or if your address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district that ThriftBooks chooses, and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided the original complaint; and

      5. Your signature (physical or electronic is acceptable).

    3. Updated Requirements

      Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Services must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA and should be sent to ThriftBooks’ designated agent through the address listed below. Please be aware that there can be penalties for false claims under the DMCA.
