Copyright & Intellectual Property Policy

Last Updated: June 11, 2018

Seesaw respects the intellectual property rights of others and expects its users to do the same when using our products.

It is Seesaw's policy, in appropriate circumstances and at its discretion, to terminate the accounts of users who repeatedly infringe the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of others.

In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998, the text of which may be found on the U.S. Copyright Office website at: http://www.copyright.gov/legislation/dmca.pdf, Seesaw will respond expeditiously to claims of copyright infringement committed using our products that are reported to Seesaw's Designated Copyright Agent, identified in the sample notice below.

If you are a copyright holder, or are authorized to act on behalf of one, please report alleged copyright infringements taking place on or through the Sites by completing a notice of alleged infringement and sending it to Seesaw's Designated Copyright Agent.

Please note that under the DMCA, you may be liable for damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees incurred by us or our users, if you knowingly materially misrepresent that material or activity is infringing. If you aren’t sure whether the content you are reporting infringes your rights, please consider speaking with an attorney before sending us a notification.

We review all notices of intellectual property infringement for completeness, accuracy, and validity. Upon receipt of a valid notice, Seesaw takes appropriate action, which may include removal of the challenged material from the Seesaw website and/or suspension or termination of the user’s account.

We forward a complete copy of each notice (including the sender’s name, address, and contact information) to the user(s) who posted the allegedly infringing material. If you are concerned about having this information forwarded, you may wish to have an authorized agent submit your notice for you. We will also forward a redacted copy of the complaint to Lumen.

 

DMCA NOTICE OF ALLEGED INFRINGEMENT

To submit a notice of alleged copyright infringement, you will need to provide the following information:

  1. Identification of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed.  If multiple copyrighted works are covered by a notice, you may provide a representative list of the copyrighted works that you claim have been infringed.
  2. Identification of the material on Seesaw that you claim is infringing, and the information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material, such as the URL on Seesaw where the material may be found.
  3. Your mailing address, telephone number, and email address.
  4. Include both of these statements in the body of the notice:
  5. "I hereby state that I have a good faith belief that the disputed use of the copyrighted material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law (e.g., as a fair use)."
  6. "I hereby state that the information in this notice is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that I am the owner, or authorized to act on behalf of the owner, of the copyright or of an exclusive right under the copyright that is allegedly infringed."
  7. Your full legal name and your electronic or physical signature (typing your full legal name will do).

Send your notice, with all the above items included, to Seesaw's Designated Copyright Agent:

IF YOU RECEIVE A DMCA NOTICE

If we inform you that content you’ve posted on Seesaw has been removed due to a copyright complaint, it means the copyright holder or an authorized representative of the copyright holder asked us to remove it.

If we get too many copyright complaints about your Seesaw account, we may disable or terminate your account.

You may file a counter-notice if you believe the allegedly infringing material was misidentified or removed in error.

 

DMCA COUNTER-NOTICES

You may submit a counter-notice by emailing help@seesaw.me. Your counter-notice must:

  1. Identify the material on Seesaw that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled. (which can be cut and pasted from the notification email).
  2. Provide your mailing address, and telephone number.
  3. State under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification.
  4. State that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal district court for the judicial district in which your address is located, or if your address is outside the United States, for any judicial district in which Seesaw may be found, and that you’ll accept service of process from the person who provided the complaint or an agent of that person.
  5. Your full legal name and your electronic or physical signature (typing your full legal name will do).

Upon receipt of a valid counter-notice, we’ll forward a copy to the person who sent us the original copyright notice. If we do not receive notice within 10 business days that the original reporter is seeking a court order to prevent further infringement, we may reinstate or cease disabling access to the material that was removed.

 

NOTIFICATION OF OTHER INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY INFRINGEMENT

If you believe that an intellectual property (IP) right other than copyright is being infringed by a Seesaw user, please send a notice to our Designated Copyright Agent (specified above) with the following information:

  1. Your full legal name and your electronic or physical signature (typing your full legal name will do).
  2. Information reasonably sufficient to permit Seesaw to contact you or your authorized agent, including a name, mailing address, telephone number and email address.

  4. Identification of the IP right alleged to have been infringed, including a complete description or explanation of the nature of the legal right and copies of relevant registrations, certifications or other documentary evidence sufficient for Seesaw to determine without unreasonable effort that an IP right has been infringed. Please note that Seesaw only investigates complaints submitted by the IP holder or an authorized representative of the IP holder.

Upon receipt of your notice, Seesaw will notify the user who posted the disputed content and take whatever action, in our sole discretion, we deem appropriate, including temporary or permanent removal of the content or suspension/termination of the user’s account.
