Copyright Infringement Policy
If you believe that your copyright has been infringed by content posted to the Site by Site users or if you believe that User Content you posted to the Site has been wrongly removed from the Site as a result of a third-party allegation of infringement, please refer to our Digital Millennium Copyright Act Policy (“DMCA Policy”) for information regarding how to file or respond to a notice of infringement. This DMCA Policy is incorporated into and made a part of these Terms by this reference, and your use of the Site constitutes your acknowledgement of and agreement to the DMCA Policy.
We will respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with the requirements set forth in this DMCA Policy. We do not act as an arbiter or judge of disputes about intellectual property rights. It is our policy to remove content posted by users on our https://www.chinamist.com website and future related websites(these websites shall be individually and collectively referred to in this DMCA Policy as the “Site”), which content we believe in good faith is infringing a third party’s copyright. By removing content, as a prudential matter, we are not endorsing or validating a claim of infringement. If we remove content from the Site, we will make a good-faith attempt to contact the party responsible for posting or displaying the content so such party may make a counter-notification as provided for below.
We have a Designated Agent to handle copyright infringement notices and counter-notifications:
Attn: DMCA Agent/Legal Department
Address: P.O. Box 77057, Fort Worth, TX 76177
Phone: (877) 427-9880
If you believe your work has been displayed or otherwise used on the Site in a manner that infringes your copyright, you must provide written notification of such to our Designated Agent via mail and/or e-mail. Please note that you may be liable for damages, including without limitation attorneys’ fees and costs, if you materially misrepresent that your copyright has been infringed by content on the Site. If you are unsure whether your copyright has been infringed, we recommend that you contact an attorney before sending notice to our Designated Agent.
Use this format for your written notification:
(a) Identify in sufficient detail your copyrighted work that you believe has been infringed by content on the Site;
(b) Identify the content on the Site that you claim infringes your copyright, describe how the content infringes your copyright, and describe each place where the content is located on the Site;
(c) Provide your full name, mailing address, telephone number, and e-mail address;
(d) Include a statement that, under the penalty of perjury, you have a good-faith belief that use of the content in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;
(e) Include a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and, under penalty of perjury, that you are the copyright owner or that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright that is allegedly infringed; and
(f) Sign the written notification physically or electronically.
In addition, it would help if you included a copy of the copyright Certificate of Registration for your work, if any, or other information that supports your claim that your work is protected by copyright and that you are the owner of that copyright or are authorized to act on behalf of the owner. If your notice contains the required information, and if we have a good-faith belief that the content is infringing your copyright, we will remove the content from the Site’s web page(s) that is(are) listed in your notice. Unless prohibited by law, we may provide all of the information in your notice (including without limitation your identifying information) to the user who posted the content.
The provider of affected content may make a counter notification by writing to our Designated Agent via mail and/or e-mail. If you make a counter notice, please note that you may be liable for damages, including without limitation attorneys’ fees and costs, if you materially misrepresent that your content is not infringing the copyright of a third party. If you are unsure whether your content infringes the copyright of a third party, we recommend that you contact an attorney before sending a counter notice to our Designated Agent. Use the following format for your written counter notification:
(a) Identify the content that has been removed, including a description of each page of the Site where the content was located before it was removed;
(b) Provide your full name, mailing address, telephone number, and e-mail address;
(c) Include a statement that, under the penalty of perjury, you have a good-faith belief that the content was removed as a result of mistake or misidentification of the content to be removed;
(d) Include a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located, or, if your address is outside the United States, in the Federal District Courts of Texas, U.S.A., and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement or an agent of such person; and
(e) Sign the written notification physically or electronically.
After reviewing your counter notice, we may, in our discretion, reinstate the content on the Site. In doing so, we are not making a determination as to whether any copyrights or other IP rights have or have not been infringed. Unless prohibited by law, we may provide all of the information in your counter notice (including without limitation your identifying information) to the party who complained of the infringement.
Notice of Repeat Infringement and Account Termination
We will, if appropriate, suspend or terminate repeat infringers’ access to the Site or ability to post content to the Site. If you believe a Site user is a repeat infringer, please follow the instructions above to notify our Designated Agent and provide sufficient information so we can verify that the user is a repeat infringer.
