Copyright and DMCA Policy

YAH respects the intellectual property of others, and we ask our users to do the same. Each user is responsible for ensuring that the materials they upload to the Site do not infringe any third party copyright.

YAH will promptly remove materials from the Site in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) if properly notified that the materials infringe a third party’s copyright. In addition, YAH may, in appropriate circumstances, terminate the accounts of repeat copyright infringers.

If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide us with a written notice containing the following information:

  1. Your name, address, telephone number, and email address (if any).
  2. A description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed.
  3. A description of where on the Site the material that you claim is infringing may be found, sufficient for YAH to locate the material (e.g., the URL).
  4. A statement that you have a good faith belief that the use of the copyrighted work is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.
  5. A statement by you that the information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf.
  6. Your electronic or physical signature.

You may submit this information via CONTACT FORM

Please note that we will send any complete counter-notifications we receive to the person who submitted the original DMCA notice. That person may elect to file a lawsuit against you for copyright infringement. If we do not receive notice that a lawsuit has been filed within ten (10) business days after we provide notice of your counter-notification, we will restore the removed materials. Until that time, your materials will remain removed. We will provide a copy of the original DMCA takedown notice upon request.

YAH will terminate user accounts that have been the subject of three (3) separate DMCA notices. In the event a user’s materials are removed due to a DMCA notice and then subsequently restored due to the filing of a DMCA counter-notification, YAH will treat the underlying DMCA notice as withdrawn.

YAH reserves the right to terminate user accounts that are the subject of fewer than three (3) DMCA notices in appropriate circumstances, such as where the user has a history of violating or willfully disregarding YAH’s Terms and Conditions.
