Pioneer may remove content posted by you or other users that in its sole discretion appears to infringe the intellectual property rights of others. It is Pioneer’s policy to terminate the accounts of repeat offenders. If we remove or disable access to comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“Act”), we will make a good-faith attempt to contact the owner, author, or administrator of each affected account so that they may make a counter notification pursuant to sections 512(g)(2) and (3) of the Act.

(a) Infringement Notification. If you believe that content residing on or accessible through a Website infringes a copyright for which you own or are a designated agent, please send a notice of infringement by fax or regular mail with the information that sets forth the items specified below. Please note that we may post your notification, with personally identifiable information redacted, to a clearinghouse such as chillingeffects.org. To expedite our ability to process your request, please use the following format:
• Identify the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed. If multiple copyrighted works on a Website are covered by a single notification, provide a representative list of such works. 
• Identify the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity. Include information reasonably sufficient to permit Pioneer to locate the material. Please provide a URL for each item. Include the specific asset(s) or page(s) that you claim to be infringing. Say entire work ONLY if all assets / pages in a collection/document are infringing
• Include details of your claim to the material, or your relationship to the material’s copyright holder.
• Provide your full name, address, and telephone number should we need to clarify your claim.
• Provide a working email address where we can contact you to confirm your claim.
• If true, include the following statement: “I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials described above as the allegedly infringing web pages is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.”
• If true, include the following statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner to make this complaint.” • Sign the document, physically or electronically.

We will review your claim and determine its merit. If, after our review, we believe your claim is sufficient to remove the information from public view, we will do so immediately and provide you with confirmation. If your claim is insufficient to act upon, or, in our consideration the material has been posted with a good faith effort and compliant with the DMCA, we will notify you and provide you opportunity to clarify or seek additional remedy. 

(b) How do I file a DMCA counter notice? The process for counter-notifications is governed by Section 512(g) of the Act: http://www.copyright.gov/legislation/dmca.pdf. If you believe your material has been removed improperly, you may file a counter notification. To file an official counter notification with us, you must provide a written communication that sets forth the items specified below. Please note that under Section 512(f) of the Copyright Act, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability. Please also be advised that we enforce a policy that provides for the termination in appropriate circumstances of subscribers who are repeat infringers. Accordingly, if you are not sure whether certain material infringes the copyrights of others, we suggest that you first contact an attorney. 

(c) Elements of Counter-Notification. A sample counter notification may be found at: http://www.chillingeffects.org/dmca/counter512.pdf. To expedite our ability to process your counter notification, please use the following format:
