Challenge Builder, LLC, a Missouri limited liability company (“Challenge Builder,” “we,” or “us”), respects others’ intellectual property rights and we require the users of this website (the “Website”) to do the same. Challenge Builder will respond to allegations of copyright infringement in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”). The DMCA provides a process for a copyright owner to give notification to an online service provider (in this instance, Challenge Builder) concerning alleged copyright infringement. When a valid DMCA notification is received meeting the requirements outlined below, the service provider responds under this process by taking down the allegedly infringing content. Upon taking down content under the DMCA, Challenge Builder will take reasonable steps promptly to notify the owner of the removed content so that a counter-notification can be sent to Challenge Builder. Upon receiving a valid counter-notification, we generally restore the content in question, unless we receive notice from the party alleging infringement that a legal action has been filed seeking a court order to restrain the alleged infringer from engaging in the infringing activity.
A written notification must be made to the Designated Agent of Challenge Builder indicated below. This notice can be done either by e-mail or written letter (regular U.S. mail or courier) to the Designated Agent as follows: Seigfreid Bingham, P.C., Attn: DMCA Agent, 2323 Grand Boulevard, Suite 1000, Kansas City, Missouri 64108, E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The following information must be included in your notice (except the information listed as optional below):
The DMCA provides that you may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) if you knowingly make a false claim that materials infringe your copyrights. We recommend contacting an attorney if you are unsure whether your content is protected by copyright laws.
If your content has been removed or access disabled from the Website as a result of a notification by a purported copyright owner that such party’s copyright rights are infringed by your content, you may respond by sending us a written DMCA counter-notification as follows:
This notice can be done either by e-mail or written letter (regular U.S. mail or courier) to the Designated Agent as follows: Seigfreid Bingham, P.C., Attn: Angie Armenta, 911 Main Street, Suite 2800, Kansas City, Missouri 64105, E-mail: email@example.com.
If the Designated Agent receives a counter-notification in compliance with the above requirements, it will promptly provide the party alleging infringement with a copy of the counter-notification and inform such party that Challenge Builder will replace or enable access to the removed material in ten (10) business days from the date of the counter-notification unless the Designated Agent first receives notice from the party alleging infringement that such party has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain the user of the Website from engaging in the allegedly infringing activity of uploading the infringing material to the Website.
What rights do I need to have to post content on the Site?
In addition to permission from third-party copyright owners to make use of their video, music, graphics, photographs, and other intellectual property, we require you to obtain permission to depict any persons in an uploaded photograph or other work (except to the extent that such permission is not required by law).
Do you terminate accounts based on DMCA claims?
If Challenge Builder believes that a user of this Website or any other website owned or operated by Challenge Builder is continually abusing the DMCA process, either with filings that appear to be without basis or by continually re-posting content that is the subject of valid DMCA notifications, we may exercise our right to terminate the abusing party’s account. PLEASE NOTE THAT CHALLENGE BUILDER INTENDS TO COMPLY WITH ALL PROVISIONS OF THE DIGITAL MILLENNIUM COPYRIGHT ACT BUT WILL NOT TAKE ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR POLICING AND REMOVING MATERIAL UNLESS CHALLENGE BUILDER POSSESSES ACTUAL OR APPARENT KNOWLEDGE OF INFRINGEMENT OR IS NOTIFIED AS DISCUSSED ABOVE.
