Please also include your contact information (the “Notifying Party”), including name, address, telephone number, and email address, as well as a statement that the Notifying Party has a good faith belief that the material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or law. Please know that under the DMCA, a statement 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 owner is made under penalty of perjury. You will also need to include a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright that has been allegedly infringed. Please also note that the information provided in a notice of copyright infringement may be forwarded to the individual or entity who posted the allegedly infringing content if other than Citarella.

Upon receipt of a valid counter-notification, we will forward it to the Notifying Party who submitted the original DMCA notification.
