Hopin Copyright Policy
Report copyright infringement
If you believe that your work has been copied in a manner that constitutes copyright infringement, please report it to us following the procedures mentioned in the Takedown Notice procedure below. Hopin complies with the DMCA notice, dispute and takedown requirements and will respond to notices of alleged infringement that comply with the DMCA. In accordance with the DMCA, Hopin will respond promptly to notices of alleged infringement that are reported to Hopin’s Designated Copyright Agent, as mentioned in the DMCA Takedown Notice procedure (as described below). Please note that any user for whom Hopin receives three or more notices of alleged infringing activities that comply with DMCA takedown notices or similar copyright notices will be promptly terminated.
Takedown notice procedure for notices of alleged infringement
If you are a copyright owner, authorized to act on behalf of one, or authorized to act under any exclusive right under copyright, please report alleged copyright infringements taking place on or through our site by sending us a notice (“Notice”) complying with the following requirements:
- Identify the copyrighted works that you claim have been infringed.
- Identify the material or link you claim is infringing (or the subject of infringing activity) and that access to which is to be disabled, including at a minimum, if applicable, the URL of the link shown on the site where such content may be found.
- Provide your mailing address, telephone number, and, if available, email address.
- Include both of the following statements in the body of the Notice:
“I hereby state that I have a good faith belief that the disputed use of the copyrighted material is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law (e.g., as a fair use).”
“I hereby state that the information in this Notice is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that I am the owner, or authorized to act on behalf of the owner, of the copyright or of an exclusive right under the copyright that is allegedly infringed.”
- Provide your full legal name and your electronic or physical signature.
- Deliver this Notice, with all items completed, to our Copyright Agent: [email protected]
- Counter-Notice Procedure
In case a publisher or the person or entity that submitted or made available the material believes that the material was removed or access to it was disabled by mistake or misidentification, such party may file a counter-notification with Hopin (a “Counter-Notice”) by submitting written notification to Hopin’s Copyright Agent designated above.
Pursuant to the DMCA, the Counter-Notice must include substantially the following:
- the physical or electronic signature of the party providing the Counter-Notice;
- an identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access disabled;
- adequate information by which Hopin can contact the party providing the Counter-Notice (including such party’s name, postal address, telephone number, and, if available, email address);
- a statement, under penalty of perjury, by the party providing the Counter-Notice that that party has a good faith belief that the material identified above was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled; and
- a statement by the party providing the Counter-Notice that that party will consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which that party’s address is located (or if residing outside the United States, for any judicial district in which the Services may be found) and that that party will accept service from the party (or an agent of that party) who provided Hopin with the complaint at issue.
The DMCA allows Hopin to restore the removed content if the party filing the original DMCA Notice does not file a court action against the party who filed the Counter-Notice within ten business days of receiving the copy of the Counter-Notice. If a party knowingly and materially misrepresents the material, or made Hopin remove or disable access to such material by mistake or misidentification, that party may be held liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) under Section 512(f) of the DMCA.
