General. Closely, Inc. (“Closely”) respects and wants to protect the rights of copyright owners. We ask all users of the Closely.com site and service to avoid violating copyright laws and regulations. Unauthorized copying, distribution, modification, public display, or public performance of copyrighted works is an infringement of a copyright holder’s rights.

Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Closely will respond to notices of alleged infringement that comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the text of which can be found at the U.S. Copyright Office Web Site, http://www.copyright.gov/) and other applicable intellectual property laws, which may include removing or disabling access to material claimed to be the subject of infringing activity. If Closely removes or disables access to comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, we will make a good-faith attempt to contact the owner or person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the affected material so that they may make a counter notification pursuant to sections 512(g)(2) and (3) of that Act. Closely will document all notices of alleged infringement on which we act. A copy of the notice will be sent to a third party who will make it available to the public.
