Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA)

When TipSnaps receives a DMCA takedown notice we manually review the request to determine that the claim appears valid. If the request does in fact appear valid, we will email you the request and you will have 48 hours to dispute the DMCA takedown, or the content will be removed from your page.

If you wish to dispute this DMCA takedown then you can send us a valid counter-notice. If you do this we will forward it to the original sender of the takedown notice. If the original sender wishes to keep your content removed then the next step for them is to sue in federal court.

To send a counter-notice we suggest you follow this template:

1. Your personal information:

  • Your name
  • Your address
  • Your telephone number

2. In your own words identify the content that was removed and include the URL of your page. If the content was located somewhere other than your creator home page, then please specify where it was located.

3. This statement:

"Under penalty of perjury I have a good faith belief that the material was removed as a result of mistake or misidentification. I consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which my address is located. If my address is outside of the United States, I consent to the jurisdiction of for any judicial district in which TipSnaps may be found. I will accept service of process from the person who sent the original takedown notice, or an agent of that person."

4. Your physical or electronic signature.

Please note that if we receive multiple DMCA notices for your page that we may ban you from using TipSnaps as part of our repeat infringer policy. Any notices you send a counter-notice for will not be counted against you in our repeat infringer policy.
