Coliday Music Group Copyright
At Coliday Music Group, we are committed to helping everyone protect their copyright and other intellectual property rights. Coliday Music Group has licensing agreements with several copyright collective management organizations.
Coliday Music Group is governed by California Law. It gives users the right to use copyrighted works when they create non-commercial user generated content under appropriate circumstances. Those circumstances include creating something new such as a remix, mashup, or new work that combines something new with something old, attribution where possible, the use of authorized content, and the assurance that the new work does not create a substantial adverse effect on the original work. The provision also grants intermediaries such as Coliday Music Group the right to disseminate non-commercial user generated content.
While we believe that many of the works posted by Coliday Music Group users qualify for the non-commercial user generated content provision, we want to ensure that all copyright owners feel adequately protected. After having regard for fair use, fair dealing, and the non-commercial user generated content rules, copyright owners who still believe that their works have been posted in violation of the law, may file a notice of infringement by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A valid notice of infringement must include the following information:
A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the work(s) that has/have been allegedly infringed;
Identification of the works or material claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple works are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works;
Identification of the specific material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient for Coliday Music Group to locate the material;
Information reasonably sufficient to permit Coliday Music Group to contact the claimant, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted;
A statement by the claimant that they have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
A valid notice of infringement may result in the removal of the content from Coliday Music Group.
Coliday Music Group's policy is to disable the accounts of people who repeatedly infringe others' intellectual property rights when appropriate.
If you have any questions about this copyright policy, contact Coliday Music Group at email@example.com.
