Applicable Law and Jurisdiction
USM U. Schärer Söhne AG, Thunstrasse 55, 3110 Münsingen, Switzerland
Last updated: 04/2013
USM 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 USM of your infringement claim in accordance with the procedure set forth below.
USM 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 sent to:
USM Modular Furniture 28-30 Greene Street, NY NY 10013 E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
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 New York City 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, USM 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 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 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at our sole discretion.
