DMCA

Happy Shoe Media LLC will respond to allegations of copyright violations in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). The DMCA provides a process for a copyright owner to give notification to an online service provider concerning alleged copyright infringement. When a valid DMCA notification is received, the service provider responds under this process by taking down the offending content. On taking down content under the DMCA, we will take reasonable steps to contact the owner of the removed content so that a counter-notification may be filed. On receiving a valid counter-notification, we generally restore the content in question, unless we receive notice from the notification provider that a legal action has been filed seeking a court order to restrain the alleged infringer from engaging in the infringing activity.

Please note that these notifications and counter-notifications are real-world legal notices. Happy Shoe Media LLC may provide copies of such notices to the participants in the dispute or third parties, at our discretion and as required by law - the privacy policy for Brick Browse does not protect information provided in these notices.

To file a notification

A written notification must be made. This can be done by written letter (regular mail or courier). Emails will not be accepted unless a prior arrangement has been made. The notification must:

  1. Identify in sufficient detail the copyrighted work that you believe has been infringed upon (i.e., describe the work that you own).
  2. Identify the item that you claim is infringing on your copyright, and provide information reasonably sufficient to locate the item. For example "The allegedly infringing work I am referring to is located at https://www.brickbrowse.com/category/image-00001.jpg."
  3. Provide a reasonably sufficient method of contacting you; phone number and email address would be preferred.
  4. Include the following statement: "I have good faith belief that the use of the copyrighted materials described above and contained on the service is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or by protection of law."
  5. 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."
  6. Sign the paper.

Please note: The DMCA provides that you may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys fees) if you falsely claim a copyright infringement. We recommend contacting an attorney if you are unsure whether an item is protected by copyright laws.
