This Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“Policy”) applies to the subtitlesdownload.me website and all related products and services and regulates how the operator of this website handles notices of copyright infringement and how they may file reports of copyright infringement.
The protection of the intellectual property is of paramount importance to us, and we ask our users and their authorized representatives to do so as well. It is Google’s policy to promptly respond to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement in compliance with the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) 1998, where text can be viewed on the U.S. Copyright Office website.
Things to consider before filing a claim of copyright infringement
Before filing a claim of copyright infringement, consider whether your use could be considered legitimate. Fair use means that under certain circumstances, short excerpts of copyrighted material may be cited verbatim for purposes such as criticism, information, education, and research, without permission or payment to the copyright holder. Although we have considered fair use, if you want to continue reporting copyright infringement, you should first contact that user to see if we can solve the problem directly with you.
If you are unsure whether the material you are reporting actually infringes copyright, you can contact an attorney before filing your report.
At our discretion or where required by law, we may share a copy of your notice or counter-notice with third parties. This may include sharing information with account holders suspected of infringing or disclosure. If you are concerned about the transfer of information, you can hire an agent to report infringing material.
Notice of Infringement
If you are the copyright owner or their agent and you believe that material available on our services infringes your copyright, you may submit a written notice of copyright infringement (“Notice”) in accordance with the DMCA using the contact information below. All such notices must comply with the requirements of the DMCA.
Reporting a DMCA violation is the beginning of a predefined legal process. Your complaint will be reviewed for accuracy, validity, and completeness. If your complaint meets these requirements, our response may include removing or restricting access to the suspected infringing material.
In the event that you remove or limit access to material or cancel your account in response to a notice of an alleged infringement, we will endeavor to do our best to provide you with a full copy of the notice (your name, address, phone number and email address) and objection. Instructions on how to file a filing
Notwithstanding any conflicting matters contained in any part of this policy, the Operator reserves the right to take action upon receipt of a notice of copyright infringement under the DMCA, in the event of non-compliance with the DMCA’s requirements for such notice.
Objection to reporting
Users who are notified of copyright infringement may file an objection application under sections 512(g)(2) and (3) of the U.S. Copyright Act. Upon receiving a notice of copyright infringement, it means that the material described in the notice has been removed from our services or that access to the material has been restricted. Read the notifications with information about the notifications you have received. To file an appeal application, you must provide written communication in accordance with the requirements of the DMCA.
If you are not sure whether any material infringes on someone else’s copyright, or whether material or activity has been removed or restricted by mistake or misunderstanding, you can contact an attorney before filing an appeal.
Notwithstanding the objections contained in part of this policy, the operator reserves the right not to take any action after receiving a counter-notification. If you receive an objection application that complies with the provisions of 17 USC § 512(g), you may forward it to the person who gave you the original notice.
The processes described in this policy do not limit our ability to pursue further remedial actions we may take to address suspected violations.
