This policy lists IMO’s requirements for notice of copyright infringement and for responses to such a notice if you or your materials are accused. IMO uses the copyright infringement procedures of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
IMO respects the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users and customers to do the same. If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, or that your intellectual property rights have been otherwise violated then please read this policy carefully.
NOTE: IMO suggests that you consult your legal advisor before filing: (i) a notification of claimed infringement under Part A below; or (ii) a counter-notification of claimed infringement under Part B below. Section 512(f) of the Copyright Act provides that you may be subject to liability if you knowingly materially misrepresent that: (i) material or activity is infringing; or (ii) material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification.
Any and all notices under this policy must be sent to IMO’s Designated Copyright Agent at the e-mail address listed below in Part C.
