This page contains instructions on how to request the removal of infringing content according to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. § 512 (the “DMCA”). Please read this entire page carefully before sending a removal request. Most images appearing on MarshallMediaProductions.com are lawfully owned by the website owners themselves. Some images or content may be submitted by our users. All of our users are prohibited from uploading images unless they legally own the rights to, or are of the public domain. Other images may be obtained from third party sources. When images are obtained by the third party then it is constituted as fair use under Section 107 of the U.S. Copyright Act; 17 U.S.C. § 107.
If you are the copyright owner and you believe that your images on this site are being infringed upon then please let us know. We will promptly investigate and take down any valid demand; as long as the demand meets all requirements of the DMCA, AND as long as the specific use of the image(s) is not clearly fair use. For clarity purposes — our promise to review your notice does not constitute a promise to remove said material, neither express nor imply. The removal of images or other content is always done at our discretion.
At a minimum, DMCA notices must include at least the following: (1) Your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address;
NOTE — the DMCA requires that you provide this information. However, we understand that some people are uncomfortable giving us their address or phone. As a courtesy, we are willing to waive that requirement as long as your request otherwise complies with all other aspects of the DMCA. So, if you don’t want to provide your address or phone, that’s fine — you can simply say: “Address/Phone available upon request”.
(2) A description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed;
(3) The exact URL or web address where the alleged infringing material is located
NOTE: a description such as “the 3rd image on page 4” is NOT sufficient! We add new content all the time, and our images may shift location. Also, a description such as “that's a photo of me” is unacceptable. We do not know who you are. You must provide the exact URL of the post in question. You can obtain the URL by clicking on the title of the post then copy paste the web address. Failure to include the exact URL may result in request denial. Examples of acceptable URLs:
YES -> https://MarshallMediaProductions.com/clubphotos/Amy-Down-and-Dirty/ (this is a direct link to a post) YES -> https://MarshallMediaProductions.com/?p=825321 (this is actually the BEST type of link to send) NO -> https://MarshallMediaProductions.com/?s=Amy+Dirty (this is a link to search results) NO -> https://MarshallMediaProductions.com/clubphotos/vegas/ (this is a link to an entire category/city)
(4) A statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use has not been authorized by you, your agent, or the law;
(5) Your electronic or physical signature or the electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on your behalf (it’s OK to just type your full name at the end of your notice); and
(6) A statement by you made under penalty of perjury, that the information in your notice is accurate, that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf.
Please email your DMCA removal request to: DMCA@MarshallMediaProductions.com. NOTE — the DMCA does not say exactly how you should format your request. However, here are two VERY important tips:
(1) Your request should include a clickable link to the post. Requests which include a clickable link receive priority over requests that do not.
(2) Your request should be sent as a standard HTML email. For some reason, a lot of people send us PDFs attached to an email.
This is permitted according to the DMCA, but it is strongly discouraged. PDF's scanned do not have any URLs in it that are clickable. If you submit your request as a PDF or other attachment, your request will be significantly delayed. (Phone calls are NOT accepted for DMCA issues).
Please be patient. DMCA notices are usually reviewed only during normal business hours from 9-5 Monday through Friday (mountain time). We try to review notices the same day they are received, but it may take up to 72 hours to process your request. If we believe that your notice is valid, we will remove the image(s) identified in the notice. However, we generally DO NOT respond to notices or explain why a particular notice was not honored.
IMPORTANT — if you “spam” us with multiple copies of the same request, our system may block your email address automatically. For that reason, we ask that you only send your notice ONCE. If nothing has been removed after 72 hours, you can re-send your notice one more time. However, if nothing is removed after your notice has been sent a second time, you should assume that the request has been denied.
Because we cannot give you legal advice, we will not respond to any emails asking “Why did you deny my DMCA request?” Legal questions should be presented to a local attorney in your area who can explain your rights and options.
NOTE: If you submit a removal request and you are NOT the copyright owner, or if you make any false statement in your demand (including a statement that our use of images is infringing when the use is clearly fair), you should be aware that the law imposes substantial liability for any damages and any attorney’s fees incurred as a result; see 17 U.S.C. § 512(f).
Repeat Infringer Policy: MarshallMediaProductions.com take copyright law seriously. In addition to removing infringing content when appropriate, we will block access to our site. For the purposes of this policy, a “repeat infringer” is defined as any person who is deemed to have uploaded infringing content three (3) or more times.
FINAL IMPORTANT TIP - The email account DMCA@MarshallMediaProductions.com is only for one thing — submitting notifications of copyright infringement pursuant to the DMCA. This email address should NOT be used for any other purpose such as asking us to remove false/defamatory posts. If you send an email to DMCA@MarshallMediaProductions.com asking us to remove a post that you claim is false, your request will not be reviewed or considered.
