Copyright Infringement Policy

Endurance takes intellectual property rights very seriously and it is our policy to respond to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement. This policy is based on the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the “DMCA”) and it describes the information required to make a valid notice of copyright infringement (“Copyright Infringement Policy”). This Copyright Infringement Policy is incorporated by reference to Endurance's Terms of Use and is designed to make submitting a notice of alleged infringement to us as straightforward as possible while reducing the number of notices that we receive that are fraudulent or difficult to verify. Unless otherwise stated, defined terms in this Copyright Infringement Policy have the meanings provided in the Terms of Use.For reference, the full text of the DMCA can be found at the following URL: www.copyright.gov.  To file a notice of alleged copyright infringement, you must provide a written notice to us that includes your full contact information and sets forth the items specified below.
  1. The name, address, phone number, email address (if available) and physical or electronic signature of the copyright owner or a person authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf;
  2. Identification of the copyrighted work(s);
  3. Identification of the infringing material you are asking us to remove or disable, and the Internet location of the infringing material;
  4. A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the disputed material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and

If we remove or disable access in response to such a notice, we will make a good-faith attempt to contact the customer and/or administrator of the affected site or content.Endurance may document notices of alleged infringement it receives and/or on which action is taken. As with all legal notices, a copy of the notice may be made available to the public and shared with one or more third parties who may make it available to the public. Upon receipt of notice from Endurance that a claim of infringement has been made and/or that the material has been removed or that access to it has been disabled, the site owner may provide a counter notice. To be effective, a counter-notice must include ALL of the following information:
  • A physical or electronic signature of the site owner;
  • Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;
  • A statement under penalty of perjury that the site owner has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled; and
  • The site owner’s name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that the site owner consents to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which they are located, or if the site owner’s address is outside of the United States, the jurisdiction of the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts, and that the site owner will accept service of process from the complainant or the complainant’s agent.
Upon receiving a proper counter-notice, Endurance will take reasonable steps to restore the material in ten to fourteen business days unless the copyright owner commences court proceedings to prevent the restoration of the material and Endurance is informed of such proceedings.
