Claims of Copyright Infringement

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA") provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you have a good faith belief that materials hosted by us infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send us a notice requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information:

  1. a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly being infringed upon;
  2. identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed upon (or if multiple copyrighted works located on the Platform are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works);
  3. identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow us to locate the material on the Platform;
  4. the name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address (if available) of the complaining party;
  5. a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;
  6. a statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send us a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright/ for details. Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Platform should be sent to Customer Services, Job.com, 108 Wild Basin Road Suite 250, Austin, TX 78746, We suggest that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice.
