Vysda (“Vysda”) respects the intellectual property rights of others and expects its users to do the same. Vysda responds to copyright reports submitted under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”). Section 512 of the DMCA outlines the statutory requirements necessary for formally reporting copyright infringement, as well as providing instructions on how an affected party can appeal a removal by submitting a compliant counter-report.
Pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (17 U.S.C. § 512), Vysda has implemented procedures for receiving written notification of claimed infringements. Vysda has also designated an agent to receive notices of claimed copyright infringement. Upon receipt of the Report as described below, Vysda will take whatever action, in its sole discretion, it deems appropriate, including removal of the challenged material from the Site. If Vysda removes or disables access to content in response to a Report, we may notify the user with details about the Report so that they can submit a counter-report. Vysda may also send a complete copy of the Report to users where appropriate.
