Intellectual Property & Allegro Multimedia
As required by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 ("DMCA")(U.S. Copyright Office Web Site, summary at: www.copyright.gov/legislation/dmca.pdf, or the full text of this statute: lcWeb.loc.gov/copyright/), Allegro Multimedia management will attempt to respond expeditiously to all claims of potential copyright infringement regarding Web Sites owned or hosted by Allegro Multimedia.
It is our policy to respond to notices of alleged infringement that comply with the DMCA in an appropriate manner under such Act and other applicable intellectual property laws, including the removal or disabling of access to material claimed to be the subject of infringing activity.
If you believe a Website hosted by Allegro Multimedia infringes a copyright, the DMCA requires that we obtain the information below in writing in the form of a "Notice of Copyright Infringement" ("Notice"). This means that we will respond only to Notices we receive in writing. Allegro Multimedia will not accept nor respond to verbal, telephonic, or other Notices that are not compliant with the DMCA's requirements.
A physical signature of the copyright owner or authorized agent; [In order to protect content owners, users and ourselves from fraudulent claims of infringement and unwarranted removal of mater or link disablement based on insufficient Notices, it is our current policy to require a physical signature on all Notices. Under the DMCA, an "electronic signature" may also be acceptable. The law, however, does not specify what constitutes a suitable "electronic signature" and the current technological limitations in authenticating and verifying e-mail communications creates a great risk of fraud. If and when Allegro Multimedia is able to consistently and securely authenticate, verify and accept electronic communications, Allegro Multimedia may amend this policy and allow acceptance of e-mail Notices. However, at this time Allegro Multimedia cannot and will not be able to respond to any Notices delivered by email, facsimile, or other method electronic transmission, of claimed copyright infringement. You must send any Notices to us by U.S. MAIL, EXPRESS DELIVERY, COURIER or other means of physical delivery.]
