Copyright (DMCA) Notification and Counter-Notification Process

Each user is responsible for ensuring that the materials they upload to Cryptopia.org (the “Website”) do not infringe any third party copyright.

Cryptopia.org will promptly remove materials from the Website in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) if properly notified that the materials infringe a third party’s copyright. In addition, Cryptopia.org may, in appropriate circumstances, terminate the accounts of repeat copyright infringers.

Please note that we will forward any complete counter-notifications we receive to the person who submitted the original DMCA notice. That person may elect to file a lawsuit against you for copyright infringement. If we do not receive notice that a lawsuit has been filed within ten (10) business days after we provide notice of your counter-notification, we will restore the removed materials. Until that time, your materials will remain removed.

3. Repeat Infringer Policy

Cryptopia.org will terminate user accounts that have been the subject of three (5) separate DMCA notices. In the event a user’s materials are removed due to a DMCA notice and then subsequently restored due to the filing of a DMCA counter-notification, Cryptopia.org will treat the underlying DMCA notice as withdrawn.

Cryptopia.org reserves the right to terminate user accounts that are the subject of fewer than three (3) DMCA notices in appropriate circumstances, such as where the user has a history of violating or wilfully disregarding Cryptopia.org’s Terms of Service.
