It is our policy to respond to clear
notices of alleged copyright infringement. This page
describes the information that should be present in
these notices. It is designed to make submitting notices
of alleged infringement to www.difference.news as straightforward
as possible while increasing our response time to
complaints and reducing the number of notices that we
receive that are fraudulent or difficult to understand
or verify. The form of notice specified below is
consistent with the form suggested by the United States
Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the text of which can
be found at the U.S. Copyright Office Web Site) but we
will respond to notices of this form from other
jurisdictions as well.
Regardless of whether we may be liable for such
infringement under local country law or United States
law, our response to these notices may include removing
or disabling access to material claimed to be the
subject of infringing activity and/or terminating
subscribers. We may also document notices of alleged
infringement on which we act. As such, your letter (with
your personal information removed) may be forwarded to
Chilling Effects for publication
