How to File a DMCA Counter-Notification

If a subscriber receives from Murray Electric a DMCA Subscriber Notice and believes it has been sent in error, the subscriber may provide Murray Electric with a written DMCA Counter-Notification. To be effective, a DMCA Counter-Notification must be sent to Murray Electric’s designated agent listed above and include the following required information:

1. Physical or electronic signature of the subscriber.

2. Identification of the material that was the subject of the DMCA Subscriber Notice and location at which the material appeared.

3. A statement, under penalty of perjury, that the subscriber has a good faith belief that the Notification of Copyright Infringement that triggered the DMCA Subscriber Notice was a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.

4. The subscriber’s name, address and telephone number, and a statement that the subscriber consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the subscriber’s address is located, or if the subscriber address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which Murray Electric may be found, and that the subscriber will accept service of process from the person who provided notification or an agent of such person.

Upon receipt of a legally compliant DMCA Counter-Notification, Murray Electric will forward it to the party that filed the original Notification of Copyright Infringement. To the extent the DMCA Counter-Notification will reveal your identity to the complaining party, who then can file a copyright infringement lawsuit against you directly, it is advisable that subscribers seek legal counsel before submitting a DMCA Counter-Notification.
