Our policy is to respond to notices of alleged infringement that comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA").

If you believe that your work has been copied in a manner that constitutes copyright infringement, or your intellectual property rights have been otherwise violated, you can request that we take down the infringing material by filing a DMCA Notice with Worldwideregistry.com. If your material has been removed as a result of a DMCA Notice, you may file a Counter-Notice requesting that the material be restored.

Anyone making a false or fraudulent Notice or Counter-Notice may be liable for damages under the DMCA, including costs and attorney's fees. If you are unsure of whether certain material infringes your copyright, contact an attorney.

Notices and Counter-Notices are legal notices distinct from regular Site activities or communications. As such, they are not subject to the Worldwide Registry, LLC Privacy Policy. This means we may publish or share them with third parties at our discretion, and we may produce them pursuant to a legal discovery request.

Filing A DMCA Notice

Filing A DMCA Counter-Notice

If your material has been removed or blocked by us as a result of a DMCA Notice, you may send us a Counter-Notice asking for the allegedly infringing material to be restored.

When we receive the Counter-Notice, we will send a copy of the Counter-Notice to the party who originally requested the removal of the allegedly infringing material and we will reinstate the allegedly infringing material, unless that party obtains a court order supporting its removal. We reserve the right to ignore a Counter-Notice that is not in compliance with the DMCA.
