Digital Millennium Copyright Act Policy
Vector Free will respond to all allegations of copyright infringements in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). The DMCA provides a process for a copyright owner to give notification to the Site concerning alleged copyright violations. If you believe that content accessible through the Vector Free Site infringes your copyright, please send a notice of claimed infringements with reference “DMCA Notice” to “info at Vector Free.com”.
From the moment a DMCA notification is received, Vector Free will take down the offending content within 48 hours. Vector Free will take reasonable steps to contact the creator or owner of the removed content so that a counter-notification may be filed.
To file a DMCA notification, your email must contain the following information:
1. Your contact details, including e-mail, post address and telephone number;
2. Identification of the copyrighted artwork claimed to have been infringed;
3. Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing to permit Vector Free to locate the material (title or url of the material);
4. A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material is not authorized by the creator, copyright owner, its agent, or the law;
5. A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright that is infringed.
6. Your physical or electronic signature.
Once a complete and proper notice of claimed copyright infringement is received by Vector Free, it is our policy:
1. To remove or disable access to the content identified in the notice of claimed infringement;
2. To notify the content provider, member or user that the material has been removed due to copyright infringement;
3. To terminate the membership of account holders who are repeat infringers.
DMCA Counter-Notice Procedure
If a Vector Free member believes that the removed content is not infringing, the member may send an email with reference “DMCA Counter-Notice” to “info at Vector Free.com” containing the following information:
1. Your Vector Free account name, related email, address and telephone number plus a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which you reside.
2. Identification of the content that has been removed (original title of the material).
3. A statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed as a result of misidentification;
4. Your physical or electronic signature.
If a DMCA counter-notice is received, Vector Free will send a copy of the counter-notice to the complaining party. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, the removed content may be restored in 7 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at Vector Free’s sole discretion.
