Intellectual Property Policy

TVM has adopted this intellectual property policy in accordance with industry best practices, general U.S. intellectual property laws, and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DCMA).

Notices of Intellectual Property Infringement

TVM strives to respond quickly when we receive proper notice of intellectual property infringement by removing or disabling access to the allegedly infringing material. When TVM removes or disables access in response to a notice, TVM makes a reasonable attempt to contact the allegedly infringing party, provide information about the notice and removal, and, in cases of alleged copyright infringement, provide information about counter notification. TVM may also provide a copy of the notice to the allegedly infringing party.

Counter Notification

If TVM receives a DMCA counter notification, the removed material may be replaced or access to it may be restored 10 business days after receipt of the counter notice, unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the allegedly infringing party and informs TVM of this action. TVM sends a copy of the counter notice to the original complaining party.

Repeat Infringement

TVM terminates account privileges of members that are subject to repeat notices of intellectual property infringement in appropriate circumstances and at TVM ’s discretion.

Please use email to provide notice of claimed infringement to TVM who will provide it to the appropriate counsel.
