Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) Notice

    If you believe that material available on our sites, including those hosted at AdrianRodriguezStudios.com, infringes on your copyright(s), please notify us by submitting a DMCA notice. After we receive a valid and complete notice, we will remove the material and make a good faith attempt to contact the user who uploaded the material by email.

    AdrianRodriguezStudios.com creates and sells plugins that allow users to create and add content to their WordPress sites. Please note that we are not involved in the publishing of content through our plugins, and we are unable to process DMCA notices that refer to sites hosted on third party servers or sites that are maintained by a third party.

    AdrianRodriguezStudios.com also publishes original content, and at times, may reference the work of others for the purposes of commentary, education, journalism, or purveyance of information. As such, before submitting a DMCA notice, it’s important to consider if the manner in which the material is used falls under fair use. If you are not sure whether material located on an AdrianRodriguezStudios.com site infringes your copyright, or if it is subject to fair use protections, you should first consider seeking legal advice.

    **You may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) if you materially misrepresent that material or activity infringes your copyright. **We will seek to collect those damages. In addition, you are required to consider the possible fair use implications, as a result of Lenz v. Universal. We reserve the right to challenge abuses of the DMCA process, and your use of this form does not waive that right.

    Your DMCA notice will be reviewed, and also may be sent to third parties such as LumenDatabase.org. A note will also be placed on the site in question detailing the name of the copyright owner who submitted the takedown notice.

    Please follow these steps to file a notice:

    1. Verify that the page or material in question is hosted by Adrian Rodriguez Studios. We have no control over sites that are hosted by third parties. Please contact the appropriate web host with complaints.
    2. Contact the site owner directly. Go to the site in question and attempt to contact them by information posted on their site.
    3. Send your complaint to our designated agent via the form below, if the issue cannot be resolved directly with the blogger.

    As required by the DMCA, we have a policy to terminate users and/or sites that we consider to be repeat infringers. Although we won’t share the specifics of our repeat infringer policy (we don’t want anyone to game the system, after all), we believe that it strikes the right balance: it protects the rights of copyright owners and protects legitimate users from wrongful termination. Please note that notices that are successfully countered, rejected on fair use grounds, or deemed to be fraudulent are not counted against a user or site.
