Please note that you may be liable for damages, including court costs and attorneys' fees if you falsely claim that content uploaded by a user of the platform infringes your copyright.

Upon receipt of proper notification, Simcoleather will remove or disable access to the allegedly infringing material and notify the alleged infringer of your claim. We will also inform the alleged infringer of the DMCA counter-notice procedure described in section B below, through which the alleged infringer may respond to your claim and request that we reinstate the material.

B. Counter-notice procedure

If you believe that your own copyrighted material has been wrongfully removed from the Platform, you may submit a written counter-notice to our designated agent (as described above) that includes the following :

  • The identification of the material that was removed or disabled and the location where the material appeared before it was removed or disabled a statement that you agree to submit to the jurisdiction of the federal district court in which your address is located.
  • A statement that you will accept service of process from the party filing the notice or from that party's agent.
  • Your name, address and telephone number.
  • A statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.
  • Your physical or electronic signature.

If you send a valid written counter-notice to our designated agent that meets the above requirements, we will reinstate your removed or disabled material within 10 to 14 business days of receiving your counter-notice, unless our designated Agent first receives notice from the party who submitted the original notice informing us that the party has filed a court action to restrain you from engaging in infringing activity with respect to the material in question.

Please note that you may be liable for damages, including costs and attorneys' fees.

C. Repeat infringer policy

In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable laws, we will, at our discretion, disable and/or terminate access to the Platform by users who may infringe or repeatedly infringe the copyrights of others. This determination will be based on the number of “strikes” against the user. A “strike” is counted against a user each time there is an adjudication by a court, arbitrator or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction that the user has engaged in copyright infringement of any kind in relation to the Platform.

In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable laws, we will, at our discretion, disable and/or terminate access to the Platform by users who may infringe or repeatedly infringe the copyrights of others. This determination will be based on the number of “strikes” against the user. A “strike” is counted against a user each time there is an adjudication by a court, arbitrator or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction that the user has engaged in copyright infringement of any kind in relation to the Platform.

Each adjudication counts as a separate strike. If an adjudication pertains to multiple instances of copyright infringement, it can count as multiple strikes. Simcoleather has adopted a “three strikes and you’re out” policy under which a user who accumulates three strikes is considered a repeat infringer and may be subject to account termination.
