We are committed to responding to any alleged copyright violations, should they occur. Notice of any alleged violation should be in the form proposed by the U.S. Digital Millennium Copyright Act, which can be found at http://www.copyright.gov.
If any material infringes on the copyright of any offended party, we may remove the content from Kanger.dev, prevent access to it, terminate or block access for those responsible for the content, and/or take any other action deemed appropriate. We may also pass along a record of the incident for documentation and/or publication by third parties at our discretion.
Not Legal Advice/No Attorney-Client Relationship
If you believe your rights have been violated, it can be a serious matter. This DMCA notice exists solely to help us, as website owners, prevent and eliminate infringement on intellectual property rights. However, it is no substitute for the assistance of competent legal counsel. Other remedies and actions, such as against an internet service provider (ISP), may exist. Therefore, you may wish to seek legal help immediately.
For your convenience and to speed up resolution, you may send notice of alleged infringement to Kanger via email, using the email address and/or contact information provided on this website. Please note that if you falsify a claim that your copyrights have been violated, you will be liable for any and all statutory and common law damages, court costs, and attorney fees. Bogus complaints have already resulted in six-figure awards, so seeking the help of competent counsel is advised.
If you believe there has been a copyright violation, please follow these steps to speed up the process:
STEP 1. Provide the URL, ISBN#, or other identifying information for the copyrighted item you believe has been violated.
STEP 2. Identify the URL of the webpage that you believe is infringing the copyrighted work listed in step #1.
STEP 3. Provide your contact information, preferably an email address or phone number.
STEP 4. Provide information to allow us to notify the owner/administrator of the allegedly infringing webpage or other content, such as a blog or forum posting. An email address is preferred.
STEP 5. Include the following statement: “I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials described above as allegedly infringing is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.”
STEP 6. Include the following statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.”
STEP 7. Digitally sign your affirmation.
Please note that the party representing the affected website or content provider has the option to issue a counter-notification under sections 512(g)(2) and (3) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. If this occurs, we may once again post or link to the content in question.
Should you still wish to file a counter-notice, please follow the steps below:
STEP 1. Identify the specific URLs or other unique identifying information for the material that we have removed or disabled access to.
STEP 2. Provide your name, address, telephone number, email address, and state that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located. Additionally, confirm that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification under subsection (c)(1)(C) or an agent of such person.
STEP 3. Include the following statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief that each item of content identified above was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled, or that the material identified by the complainant has been removed or disabled at the URL identified and will no longer be shown.”
STEP 4. Affirm the statement by digitally signing it.
It is important to note that making false claims of copyright infringement can result in liability for statutory and common law damages, as well as court costs and attorney fees.
