Our Copyright & DMCA Policy.

Thanks for visiting the Juris Copyright & DMCA Policy! Juris has adopted a general policy regarding copyright in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (often called the “DMCA”). Juris removes material that is the subject of a complaint/DMCA takedown notice. Section 512 of the DMCA provides the rules for reporting copyright infringement and for filing a counter-notice.

 

If you believe your copyright is being infringed, you can report the alleged violation and submit a DMCA takedown notice.

If you receive a DMCA takedown notice and believe that your work has been removed or disabled by mistake or because of misidentification, you can submit a counter-notice.

 

Juris has adopted a policy of, in appropriate circumstances, terminating user accounts that are repeat infringers of the intellectual property rights of others. Juris may also terminate user accounts based on even a single infringement.

 

How to report a copyright violation.

 

If you’re not sure whether material on Juris infringes on your copyright, please consult with an attorney before filing a DMCA notice. Misrepresenting that material infringes on your copyright may subject you to liability for damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees incurred by users or other parties.

If you believe that your copyright is being infringed, you can file a DMCA takedown notice by emailing our Copyright Agent at [email protected]. Your claim must include the following information (please note that all information must be submitted in English):

 

an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest;
a description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed;
a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Juris website, sufficient for Juris to locate the material;
your address, telephone number, and email address;
a statement by you that you understand that under 17 U.S.C § 512(f) you may be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees, if you knowingly and materially misrepresent that reported material or activity is infringing;
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 that the information in your notice is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf.

You may also send the required information to our copyright agent at the following address:

WeWork c/o Juris, PBC
Attn: Copyright Agent

What happens when we receive a DMCA notice.

 

If Juris receives a DMCA takedown notice about your content, our policy is to remove the infringing material until the dispute is resolved or the DMCA process is complete. You will receive an email from Juris attaching the alleged copyright owner’s notice and providing instructions for filing a counter-notice. Juris will process DMCA notice and counter-notices that it receives, but we cannot adjudicate these disputes.

 

How to file a counter-notice to dispute the claim.

 

If you receive a DMCA takedown notice and believe that your work has been removed or disabled by mistake or because of misidentification, you can submit a counter-notice to Juris’ copyright agent by emailing us at [email protected]. Your counter-notice email must contain the following information (please confirm these requirements with your legal counsel or see the U.S. Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. §512(g)(3) for more information). Please also note that all information must be submitted in English:

 

a physical or electronic signature of the user of the services;

identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;

a statement made under penalty of perjury that the subscriber has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material; and

the subscriber’s name, address, telephone number, and a statement that the subscriber consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the address is located, or if the subscriber’s address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which the service provider may be found, and that the user will accept service of process from the person who provided notification under 17 U.S.C. § 512(c)(3), or an agent of such person. This information can also be mailed to Juris’ copyright agent at the following address:

 

WeWork c/o Juris, PBC

Attn: Copyright Agent

10000 Washington Blvd

Culver City, CA 90232

 

Under the Copyright Act, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability.

 

What happens after you submit a counter-notice.

 

After Juris receives your counter-notice, we’ll forward it to the copyright owner. Access to your content or to the infringing material will remain disabled after we receive your counter-notice until the dispute is resolved or until 10 business days have passed without notification that the owner has filed an action seeking a court order.

 

If we do not receive a notice that the owner has filed an action seeking a court order to prevent further infringement within 10 business days after forwarding the counter-notice, Juris may reinstate the content at issue.

 

Who will see your DMCA notice or counter-notice.

 

One of Juris’ core values is transparency. We want our users to make our services as good as they can be, and our users can only improve the services if they have sufficient information. With this in mind, we publish a copy of each DMCA notice and counter-notice. Personally-identifying information such as the claimant’s name, email and telephone number will be removed from notices and counter-notices before they are published. However, a claimant’s address and company name (if provided) will be posted publicly. When we remove content, we will post a link to the related notice in its place.

Juris also reserves the right to forward all materials received (including full contact details) to the opposing party in the DMCA dispute.
