Notices of Intellectual Property Infringement
Happinesz.com strives to respond quickly when we receive proper notice of intellectual property infringement by removing or disabling access to the allegedly infringing material. When Happinesz.com removes or disables access in response to a notice, Happinesz.com 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. Happinesz.com may also provide a copy of the notice to the allegedly infringing party.
If Happinesz.com 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 Happinesz.com of this action. Happinesz.com sends a copy of the counter notice to the original complaining party.
Happinesz.com terminates account privileges of members that are subject to repeat notices of intellectual property infringement in appropriate circumstances and at Happinesz.com’s discretion.
