Notification of Claims of Copyright Infringement
If you believe that your material has been copied or otherwise used in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, you may submit a notification pursuant to the Copyright Act by providing Capcom's Copyright Agent with the following information in writing. Relevant copyright legislation in the country from which your material is submitted or posted may require additional information. Capcom reserves the right to request such further information if national legislation requires:
- an electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright;
- a description of the copyrighted material that you claim has been infringed;
- a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Capcom site, with enough detail that Capcom may find it on its web site;
- 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 notification is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner's behalf.
Capcom's Agent for Notification of Claims of Copyright Infringement can be reached at the following address:
Copyright Agent and Address:
Capcom Legal Department
800 Concar Drive, Suite 175
San Mateo, CA 94402
Upon receiving a copyright notification, Capcom will review the notification to make sure it complies with the requirements listed above and will review the material that is claimed to have infringed copyright. If Capcom determines in its sole judgment that the notification is valid, Capcom will remove the material or disable access thereto and take reasonable steps promptly to notify the affected user.
Procedure for Take-Down of Content and Counter Notification
If your material has been removed or disabled due to a copyright notification, and you feel that it does not infringe any rights held by the alleged copyright owner, you can send Capcom a counter-notification and request that your material be reinstated. You must promptly send the counter-notification to the Copyright Agent at Capcom at the address listed above. Your counter-notification must contain the following elements in writing in order to ensure complete review of your request and compliance with the Copyright Act:
- A physical or electronic signature of the affected user;
- Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which such material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;
- A statement under penalty of perjury that the affected user has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled; and
- The affected user's name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that the affected user consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the address is located, or if the affected user's address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which Capcom may be found, and that the affected user will accept service of process from the person who provided the copyright notification.
If Capcom receives a counter-notification, it will promptly provide a copy to the alleged copyright owner who submitted the copyright notification, and will inform that person that Capcom will restore the affected material in 10 business days. Assuming Capcom's Copyright Agent does not receive notice within 10 business days that the alleged copyright owner has filed a legal action against the affected user, Capcom will restore the affected material within 10-14 business days following receipt of the counter-notification.
