- An identification of the copyright claimed to have been infringed;
- A description of the nature and exact location of the content that you claim to infringe your copyright, in sufficient detail to permit CS to find and positively identify that content; for example we require a link to the specific blog post (not just the name of the blog) that contains the content and a description of which specific portion of the blog post – an image, a link, the text, etc – your complaint refers to;

If an Infringement Notice is valid, we are required by law to respond to it by disabling access to the allegedly infringing content. If you are a Independent-Adjuster.com user or content provider, and access to portions of your content have been disabled for this reason, we will notify you. You then have the option to send us a written counter-notice (Counter-Notice) stating why your content does not infringe copyrights and asking for access to be reinstated. Counter-Notices need to be sent to our designated agent set forth above and must include the following:
- Your name, address, phone number and physical or electronic signature;
- A statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the U.S. Federal District Court for the judicial district in which you are located (or if you are outside the U.S., the U.S. Federal District Court for the Northern District of California), and that you will accept service of process from the person who originally provided us with the Infringement Notice (the “Copyright Holder”);
- Identification of the allegedly infringing content and its location before removal or disabling of access; and
- A statement under penalty of perjury that you believe in good faith that the content was removed by mistake or misidentification.
We remain in the process of registering our DMCA agent at this time.
