Content Removal Policy

It is Scholarch's policy to quickly respond to any notices of copyright infringement. To file a notice of copyright infringement with Scholarch, you will need to provide a written communication that sets forth the items specified below. Pursuant to to Section 512(c)(3) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the "DMCA"), please send us an email using the following format.
  • Identify with detail the allegedly infringing copyrighted content, as required by 17 U.S.C. Section 512(c)(3)(A)(ii).
  • Information reasonably sufficient to allow the Scholarch to locate the material as required by 17 U.S.C. Section 512 (c)(3)(A)(iii), preferably by providing the URL or file number of the allegedly infringing content.
  • A statement that you have a good faith belief that the use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law, as required by 17 U.S.C. Section 512(c)(3)(A)(v), as well as a statement that the information in your letter is accurate, and under the penalty of perjury that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right, as required by 17 U.S.C. Section 512(c)(3)(A)(vi). To ensure the completion of this step, please copy and paste the following quotations into your email:
    • "I recognize that the use of copyrighted materials described above as allegedly infringing is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law."
    • "I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification given is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act as an agent on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right to declare that the content is allegedly infringed."
  • A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed as required by 17 U.S.C. Section 512(c)(3)(A)(i).
  • Also, if possible, please provide contact information appropriate (preferably email addresses) to contact the provider of the allegedly infringing content.

Responses to the notices may include removal of the infringing content. If possible however, Scholarch may attempt to contact the content-provider with a notification of content removal, which may result in a counter-notice.

Thank you very much for your time (we really do appreciate it), and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
