TeacherEase Content Sharing Agreement (version 10/2013)

 

CONTENT SHARING AGREEMENT

TeacherEase is committed to complying with U.S. copyright and related laws, and requires all customers and users of TeacherEase ("the Service") to comply with these laws. Accordingly, you may not share or disseminate any material or content over the Service (or any part of the Service) in any manner that constitutes an infringement of third party intellectual property rights, including rights granted by U.S. copyright law. TeacherEase enables copyright owners to communicate information about alleged infringements to us, and for us to inform our customers about them as described below, and also complies with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 ("the DMCA"). You may receive a notice if your Service account is identified by a copyright owner as having been used in connection with acts of alleged copyright infringement.

A. DMCA Policy

Owners of copyrighted works who believe that their rights under U.S. copyright law have been infringed may take advantage of the DMCA to report alleged infringements. It is TeacherEase's policy in accordance with the DMCA and other applicable laws to remove allegedly infringing content, and to reserve the right to terminate the Service provided to any subscriber, customer or user who is either found to infringe third party copyright or other intellectual property rights, including repeat infringers, or who TeacherEase, in its sole discretion, believes is infringing these rights. TeacherEase may terminate the Service at any time with or without notice for any affected customer or user.

B. Reporting Alleged Infringements to TeacherEase under the DMCA

Copyright owners may report alleged infringements of their works that are stored on the Service by sending TeacherEase's authorized agent a notification of claimed infringement that satisfies the requirements of the DMCA. Upon TeacherEase's receipt of a satisfactory notice of claimed infringement for these works, TeacherEase will respond expeditiously to either directly or indirectly (i) remove the allegedly infringing work(s) stored on the Service or (ii) disable access to the work(s). TeacherEase will also notify the affected subscriber, customer or user of the Service of the removal or disabling of access to the work(s).

Copyright owners may send TeacherEase a notification of claimed infringement to report alleged infringements of their works under the DMCA to:

D. Responding to a DMCA Notice

If you receive a DMCA notification of alleged infringement as described above, and you believe in good faith that the allegedly infringing works have been removed or blocked by mistake or misidentification, then you may send a counter notification to TeacherEase. Upon receipt of a counter notification that satisfies the requirements of the DMCA, TeacherEase will provide a copy of the counter notification to the person who sent the original notification of claimed infringement and will follow the DMCA's procedures with respect to a received counter notification. In all events, you expressly agree that TeacherEase will not be a party to any disputes or lawsuits regarding alleged copyright infringement.
