With respect to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), we’ll respond quickly to claims of copyright infringement on Pinster that are reported to our designated copyright agent, identified below.

If you’re a copyright owner or authorized to act on behalf of one, you can report alleged copyright infringements on Pinster by completing the DMCA Notice of Alleged Infringement and sending it to copyright@pinster.com

Upon receiving your DMCA notice, we’ll take appropriate action, which may involve removing the reported content. In that case, we may notify the person who saved it on Pinster so they have the opportunity to send a counter-notice.


To file a DMCA notice

You may submit a notification pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) by providing InPlayer’s designated privacy and copyright team with the following information in writing (please consult your legal counsel or see 17 U.S.C. Section 512(c)(3) to confirm these requirements)

1. A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

2. Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works on the InPlayer web site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at the InPlayer web site.

3. Clear identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit InPlayer to locate the material. Providing URLs to the alleged infringing content in the body of an email is the best way to help us locate content quickly.

4. Information reasonably sufficient to permit InPlayer to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted.

5. A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.

6. A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

Note: There are legal and financial consequences for fraudulent or bad faith counter-notices. Before submitting a counter-notice, make sure you have a good faith belief that we removed the content in error, and that you understand the repercussions of submitting a false claim.


To File a Counter-Notice

If you’ve got a notification that one of your Pins has been removed for a copyright complaint, it means the content owner asked us to remove it. If you want us to forward the information from the copyright complaint notification, just email us at copyright@pinster.com to let us know (we may remove some personal contact information).
If your account gets too many copyright complaints, you could lose the ability to save Pins on Pinster, or we may disable your account altogether.
You can file a counter-notice if you believe we had removed your pin by mistake. After verification, if we find it to be valid, we will remove the complaint from your account’s record.

Note: Like mentioned earlier, you can opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from us by following the unsubscribe link provided in any email.


To File a Counter-Notice

1. Your name, address, and phone number.

2. The DMCA ID found at the bottom of the notification email.

3. The web address of the content we removed (copy and paste the link from the notification email).

4. A statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed in error.

5. A statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located, or if your address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which Pinster may be found, and that you’ll accept service of process from the person who provided the original complaint.

6. A physical or electronic signature (for example, by typing your full name).

Note: Please consult your legal counsel or see 17 U.S.C. Section 512(g)(3) before filing the counter-notice.
