DMCA Policy

Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.copyright.gov for details.

DMCA requests should meet the guidlines set forth in this section.

(Section 1)
Claims of Copyright Infringement

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the "DMCA") provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If You believe in good faith that materials hosted by Utopia Skye infringe your copyright (for example, materials posted by Utopia Skye), You (or Your agent) may send Utopia Skye a notice requesting that the material be removed or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information:

(a) a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;

(b) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on the Utopia Skye Sites or in Utopia Skye Services are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works);

(c) identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity, and information reasonably sufficient to allow Utopia Skye to locate the material on the Utopia Skye Sites and in the Utopia Skye Services;

(d) the name, address, telephone number and e-mail address (if available) of the complaining party;

(e) a statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and

(f) a statement that the information in the notification is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

(end of Section 1)

If You believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed by Utopia Skye LLC against you, the DMCA permits You to send Utopia Skye LLC a counter-notice.


Notices and counter-notices with respect to the Utopia Skye Sites should be sent to Utopia Skye's Copyright Agent for Notice of claims of copyright infringement at:

Utopia Skye
By E-mail: dmca@utopiaskye.com

Company's Copyright Agent for Notice of claims of copyright infringement should be contacted only
for the purposes set forth in this Section 1. 
ALL OTHER INQUIRIES DIRECTED TO Utopia Skye's COPYRIGHT AGENT WILL NOT BE ANSWERED.

We take DMCA notices very seriously, but we also take false notices just as seriously.
