May 11, 2023

In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), we’ve adopted the policy below toward copyright infringement. We reserve the right to (1) block access to or remove material that we believe in good faith to be copyrighted material that has been illegally copied and distributed by any of our advertisers, affiliates, content providers, members or users and (2) remove and discontinue service to repeat offenders.

Remember that your use of Atom’s Services is at all times subject to the Terms of Use, which incorporates this Copyright Dispute Policy. Any terms we use in this Policy without defining them have the definitions given to them in the Terms of Use.

Procedure for Reporting Copyright Infringements

If you believe that material or content residing on or accessible through the Services infringes your copyright (or the copyright of someone whom you are authorized to act on behalf of), please send a notice of copyright infringement containing the following information to the Atom Designated Agent to Receive Notification of Claimed Infringement (our “Designated Agent”, whose contact details are listed below):

  1. A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright or other intellectual property interest that has been allegedly infringed;

  2. Identification of copyrighted works or other intellectual property that you claim has been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works or other intellectual property are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works or other intellectual property;

  3. Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity, including information regarding the location of the infringing materials that you seek to have removed, with sufficient detail so that we are capable of finding and verifying its existence;

  4. Contact information about the notifier including address, telephone number and, if available, email address;

  5. A statement by the notifier that the notifier has a good faith belief that the material identified in (1)(c) is not authorized by the copyright or intellectual owner, its agent, or the law; and

  6. A statement by the notifier, made under penalty of perjury, that the information provided in the notice is accurate and that the notifying party is authorized to make the complaint on behalf of the copyright or intellectual property owner.

Once Proper Bona Fide Infringement Notification is Received by the Designated Agent. Upon receipt of a proper notice of copyright infringement, we reserve the right to:

  1. remove or disable access to the infringing material;

  2. notify the content provider who is accused of infringement that we have removed or disabled access to the applicable material; and

  3. terminate such content provider’s access to the Services if he or she is a repeat offender.

Procedure to Supply a Counter-Notice to the Designated Agent

If the content provider believes that the material that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or the content provider believes that it has the right to post and use such material from the copyright or intellectual property owner, the copyright or intellectual property owner’s agent, or, pursuant to the law, the content provider may send us a counter-notice containing the following information to the Designated Agent:

  1. physical or electronic signature of the content provider;

  2. Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled;

  3. A statement that the content provider has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material; and

  4. Content provider’s name, address, telephone number, and, if available, email address, and a statement that such person or entity consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal Court for the judicial district in which the content provider’s address is located, or, if the content provider’s address is located outside the United States, for any judicial district in which Company is located, and that such person or entity will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.

If a counter-notice is received by the Designated Agent, Company may, in its discretion, send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that Company may replace the removed material or cease disabling it in ten (10) business days. Unless the copyright or intellectual property owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider accused of committing infringement, the removed material may be replaced or access to it restored in ten (10) to fourteen (14) business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at Company’s discretion.

Repeat Infringer Policy

In accordance with the DMCA and other applicable law, Company has adopted a policy of terminating, in appropriate circumstances and at Company’s sole discretion, the accounts of users who are deemed to be repeat infringers. Company may also at its sole discretion limit access to the Services and/or terminate the accounts of any users who infringe any intellectual property rights of others, whether or not there is any repeat infringement.
