NOTICES OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INFRINGEMENT

MantaDrop strives to respond quickly when we receive proper notice of intellectual property infringement by removing or disabling access to the allegedly infringing material. When MantaDrop removes or disables access in response to a notice, MantaDrop makes a reasonable attempt to contact the allegedly infringing party, provide information about the notice and removal, and, in cases of alleged copyright infringement, provide information about counter notification. MantaDrop may also provide a copy of the notice to the allegedly infringing party.


COUNTER NOTIFICATION

If MantaDrop receives a DMCA counter notification, the removed material may be replaced or access to it may be restored 10 business days after receipt of the counter notice, unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the allegedly infringing party and informs MantaDrop of this action. MantaDrop sends a copy of the counter notice to the original complaining party.


REPEAT INFRINGEMENT

MantaDrop terminates account privileges of members that are subject to repeat notices of intellectual property infringement in appropriate circumstances and at MantaDrop’s discretion.

Please use this form to provide notice of claimed infringement to MantaDrop’s designated agent. If you are not able to use the reporting form, please see these requirements.
