We respect the intellectual property of others and expect the sites we index to do the same. As part of our effort to assist in the protection of intellectual property rights, this site (“SITE”) voluntarily chooses to comply with the notice and takedown requirements of 17 U.S.C. § 512 of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”). Pursuant to that statute, we qualify as a “Service Provider.” Specifically, SITE functions as an information location tool under 17 U.S.C. § 512(d) in that it only refers or links users to content found on third party sites that are not under our control. Under the DMCA, we are entitled to assert certain protections against claims of copyright infringement, commonly referred to as “safe harbor” clauses. Accordingly, we have adopted the following Notice and Take Down Policy with respect to claims of copyright infringement relating to content linked to the SITE.
