Mindstead LLC (referred to in this policy as "Mindstead," "us," "we," or "our") has adopted the following Intellectual Property Policy regarding content shared by visitors and members (collectively called "Users") on our website at Mindstead.org as well as any affiliated web pages we may host ("sites"), mobile applications we may develop ("apps"), or any other services we might offer (altogether called our "Services"). This policy has been developed in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") and other applicable laws.
Mindstead’s content is derived from User Generated Content (UGC). Mindstead does not check user created or uploaded content for appropriateness or violations of copyright, trademark, or other rights or violations. If you believe any of the uploaded content violates your copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property rights, you should follow the process outlined below.
If we receive a valid infringement claim (known as a “Notice”) from a copyright or trademark owner that meets all of the requirements listed below, we will comply with the law and remove the content from our website at Mindstead.org as well as any affiliated Services. As a service provider hosting content produced by other people, Mindstead isn’t in a position to make legal judgment calls or resource comparisons, so we often have to rely on formal Notices to take action.
In order to allow us to review your report, an official Notice of copyright or trademark infringement should include the following:
You can submit the Notice electronically to [email protected] with “Intellectual Property” in the subject line.
If valid, we will provide the user who is allegedly infringing your copyright or trademark with information about the Notice and allow them to respond. In cases where sufficient proof of infringement is provided, we may remove or suspend the reported materials prior to receiving the user's response. In cases where the allegedly infringing user provides us with a proper counter-notification indicating that it is permitted to post the allegedly infringing material, we may notify you and then replace the removed or disabled material.
In all such cases, we will act in accordance with 17 U.S.C Section 512 of the DCMA and other applicable laws.
