Principal Tribe Take Down Policy

Principal Tribe (“Principal Tribe”) respects the intellectual property rights of others and expects others to do the same. Accordingly, and pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. 512 (the “DMCA”), Principal Tribe (also identified herein as “we” or “us”) has adopted the following policy. If you (with end users, claimants, or visitors identified herein as “You”) believe that any materials made accessible by Principal Tribe have been used or copied in a way that infringes your copyright or other intellectual property rights, You may request removal of those materials from Principal Tribe by providing us with the following information:

  • An electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright or other intellectual property interest;
  • A description of the copyrighted work or other intellectual property that You claim has been infringed;
  • A description of where the material that You claim is infringing is located on Principal Tribe’s site or service (including the specific URL of each item in dispute, which should help us to quickly locate the relevant content);
  • Your address, telephone number, and email address;
  • A statement by You that You have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
  • A statement by You, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate and that You are the copyright or intellectual property owner or are authorized to act on the copyright or intellectual property owner’s behalf.

FAILURE TO INCLUDE ALL OF THE ABOVE INFORMATION, ESPECIALLY SPECIFIC URLS WHERE CONTENT MAY BE FOUND, WILL RESULT IN A DELAY IN THE PROCESSING OF YOUR DMCA NOTIFICATION AND MAY RESULT IN YOU HAVING TO REPEAT SOME OR ALL OF THE ABOVE PROCESS. PRINCIPAL TRIBE WILL NOT TAKE RESPONSIVE ACTION TO REMOVE CONTENT UNTIL ALL OF THE NECESSARY INFORMATION IS PROVIDED.

PLEASE READ THESE TERMS OF SERVICE CAREFULLY. BY REGISTERING FOR OR OTHERWISE USING THE SERVICE, YOU ARE TELLING US THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD, AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS OF SERVICE, INCLUDING OUR PRIVACY POLICY (TOGETHER, THESE “TERMS”). If you don’t agree with anything we propose in these Terms, please don’t (and you don’t have our permission to) use any part of the Service.

THIS PART IS REALLY IMPORTANT: These Terms require that if we get into a dispute with you relating to the Service (or vice versa), unless you live in the United Kingdom or the European Union, the dispute will be resolved by BINDING ARBITRATION. This means that YOU AGREE TO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT TO SUE US (OR BE SUED BY US) UNDER THIS CONTRACT (except for some disputes that can be taken to small claims court). Our disputes will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR and NOT A JUDGE OR JURY and you cannot start or join a class action lawsuit. Have a very careful read through Section 18 for the actual details regarding our agreement to arbitrate, which we’ve tried to make fair to our users.

Notice And Takedown

If Principal Tribe receives proper notification of claimed copyright infringement, it will respond expeditiously by removing, or disabling access to, the material that is claimed to be infringing, as described below, or to be the subject of infringing activity. Principal Tribe will also comply with the appropriate provisions of the DMCA in the event a counter-notification is received, as further described below. In addition, Principal Tribe may, at its discretion, deny access to its site by disablement and/or termination of accounts.

Designated Agent

Notice of claims of copyright or other intellectual property infringement can be delivered as follows, by email or fax (via email):

Jeff Curos
Email: admin@principaltribe.org

Upon receipt of proper notification of claimed infringement, Principal Tribe will follow the procedures outlined herein.

Copyright Counter-Notices

If content You posted on the site was removed due to a claim(s) of copyright or intellectual property infringement and You would like to dispute that removal, the process for counter-notifications is governed by Section 512(g) of the DMCA:

  • To file a counter-notification with us, You must provide a written communication that sets forth the items specified below.
  • Please note that under Section 512(f) of the DMCA, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability. Please also be advised that we enforce a policy that provides for the termination in appropriate circumstances of users (and removal of content from users) who are infringers. Accordingly, if You are not sure whether certain material infringes the copyrights of others, we suggest that You first contact an attorney.

Elements of Counter-Notification

To expedite our ability to process your counter-notification, please use the following format (including section numbers):

  • Identify the specific URLs of material that Principal Tribe has removed or to which Principal Tribe has disabled access.
  • Provide your full name, address, telephone number, email address and, if You are a registered Principal Tribe user, the username of your Principal Tribe account.
  • Provide a statement that You consent to the jurisdiction of the courts of the State of Texas and that You will accept service of process from the person who provided notification to Principal Tribe in accordance with the process outlined above or an agent of such person.
  • Include the following statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I 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.”
  • Sign the notice. If You are providing notice by email, a scanned physical signature or a valid electronic signature will be accepted. Send the communication to the following address:

Sean Curos
Email: admin@principaltribe.org

After we receive your counter-notification, we will forward it to the party who submitted the original claim of copyright infringement. Please note that when we forward the counter-notification, it may include any of your identifying information set forth in the counter-notification. By submitting a counter-notification, You, therefore, consent to having such identifying information revealed in this way.

After we send out the counter-notification, the claimant must then notify us within ten (10) days that he or she has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain You from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on the site. If we receive such notification, we will be unable to restore the items. If we do not receive such notification, we may, but are not obligated to, reinstate the disputed item(s).

Foreign Counter-Notification

If You reside outside of the United States, please understand that filing a counter-notice may lead to legal proceedings between You and the complaining party to determine ownership. Therefore, please be aware that there may be adverse legal consequences in your country and/or the United States of America if You make a false or bad faith allegation by using this process. Please also be advised that we enforce a policy that provides for the termination in appropriate circumstances of users who are infringers. So, if You are not sure whether content You posted on the site is being infringed, or are otherwise unsure of whether to file a counter-notification using these procedures, we recommend You first contact a lawyer knowledgeable in the laws of the United States and the State of Texas. If You do wish to file a counter-notice, You should follow the process set forth above under the heading “Elements of Counter-Notification.”
