Our DMCA Policy

 

Third-Party Material

Under no circumstances will Bored Teachers be liable in any way for any content or materials of any third parties (including users), including, but not limited to, for any errors or omissions in any content, or for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any such content. You acknowledge that Bored Teachers does not pre-screen content, but that Bored Teachers and its designees will have the right (but not the obligation) in their sole discretion to refuse or remove any content that is available via the Service. Without limiting the foregoing, Bored Teachers and its designees will have the right to remove any content that violates these Terms of Service or is deemed by Bored Teachers, in its sole discretion, to be otherwise objectionable. You agree that you must evaluate, and bear all risks associated with, the use of any content, including any reliance on the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of such content. 

Copyright Complaints

Bored Teachers respects the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users 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, you should notify Bored Teachers of your infringement claim in accordance with the procedure set forth below.

Bored Teachers will process and investigate notices of alleged infringement and will take appropriate actions under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) and other applicable intellectual property laws with respect to any alleged or actual infringement. A notification of claimed copyright infringement should be emailed to Bored Teachers’ Copyright Agent at [email protected] (Subject line: “DMCA Takedown Request”). You may also contact us by mail at: 1533 U.S. Highway 1, Vero Beach, FL 32960.

To be effective, the notification must be in writing and contain the following information:

  • an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright or other intellectual property interest;
  • a description of the copyrighted work or other intellectual property that you claim has been infringed;
  • a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Service, with enough detail that we may find it on the Service;
  • your address, telephone number, and email address;
  • a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright or intellectual property owner, its agent, or the law;
  • a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your Notice is accurate and that you are the copyright or intellectual property owner or authorized to act on the copyright or intellectual property owner’s behalf.

 

Counter-Notice

If you believe that your User Content that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, to upload and use the content in your User Content, you may send a written counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent:

  • your physical or electronic signature;
  • identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled;
  • a statement that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content; and
  • your name, address, telephone number, and email address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the federal court located within the Southern District of Florida and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.

If a counter-notice is received by the Copyright Agent, Bored Teachers will send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in ten (10) business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member, or user, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in ten (10) to fourteen (14) business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at our sole discretion.

 

Repeat Infringer Policy

In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable law, Bored Teachers has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances and at Bored Teachers’ sole discretion, users who are deemed to be repeat infringers. Bored Teachers may also at its sole discretion limit access to the Service and/or terminate the memberships of any users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, regardless of whether there is any repeat infringement.
