Report Copyright Infringement
Procedure For Alleging Copyright Infringement
Notice and Notice Regime. BeatsUnion will respond appropriately to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with the notice to notice tool in Canada’s Copyright Act, as set forth below. If you own a copyright in a work (or represent such a copyright owner) and believe that your (or such owner’s) copyright in that work has been infringed by an improper posting or distribution of it via the BeatsUnion Service, then you may send us a written notice. The Copyright Act lists the specific information that must be included in a notice for it to comply with the Notice and Notice regime.
The Copyright Act also lists the specific information that must not be included in a notice for it to comply with the Notice and Notice Regime.
Notices must not contain:
BeatsUnion may not respond to notices that do not comply with the above specification as such notices are deemed to be invalid under the regime, and BeatsUnion may elect to remove allegedly infringing material that comes to its attention via notices that do not comply with the notice and notice regime as identified in Canada’s Copyright Act.
A notice of alleged infringement is separate from any lawsuit for copyright infringement. Please note that any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability. We may send the information that you provide in your notice to the person who provided the allegedly infringing work. That person may elect to send us a Counter-Notification.
BeatsUnion may, in appropriate circumstances, remove the infringing work and terminate a repeat infringer’s access to the Service.
Procedure For Alleging Infringement of Other Intellectual Property
If you own intellectual property other than copyrights and believe that your intellectual property has been infringed by an improper posting or distribution of it via the Service, then you may send us an email that includes all of the following:
We will act on such notices at our sole discretion. Any user of the Service that fails to respond satisfactorily to BeatsUnion with regard to any such notice is subject to suspension or termination. We may send the information that you provide in your notice to the person who provided the allegedly infringing material.
