Fair Use and DMCA Notification

This site and all websites that are part of the VUGA Enterprises network, and the content made available through them, are for educational and informational use only.

VUGA Enterprises and all its publications are an OSP (Online Service Provider), delivering third-party content to the public free of charge. The Network provides news delivery, aggregation, and syndication services. Any images accompanying third-party content are not stored on the publication’s servers and are linked and displayed from the original third-party source of the content. Such images are the responsibility of the source of the content. If you reasonably believe that your copyrighted content has been published in violation of copyright, please submit a DMCA Takedown Notice by emailing VUGA Enterprises LLC at [email protected] with the words ‘DMCA Takedown Notice’ in the subject line. Any DMCA request must include the following information to be valid:

(i) the signature of the copyright owner or an authorized agent;
(ii) identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple works are on a single site, a representative list of such works;
(iii) identification of the infringing material or activity (or the reference or link to such material) and information reasonably sufficient to permit the OSP to locate the material (or the reference or link);
(iv) contact information for the copyright owner or authorized agent;
(v) a statement that the person sending the notice 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
(vi) a statement that the information in the notice is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the person sending the notice is authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner.

The site may contain copyrighted material owned by a third party, the use of which has not always been specifically authorized by the copyright owner. Notwithstanding a copyright owner’s rights under the Copyright Act, Section 107 of the Copyright Act allows limited use of copyrighted material without requiring permission from the rights holders, for purposes such as education, criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research. These so-called “fair uses” are permitted even if the use of the work would otherwise be infringing.

If you wish to use copyrighted material published on this site for your own purposes that go beyond fair use, you must obtain permission from the copyright owner. We recommend you seek legal counsel if you have any further questions on this matter.

If you believe that any content or post on the site where you encountered it violates your intellectual property or other rights, please notify us by emailing VUGA Enterprises LLC at [email protected] with the words ‘DMCA Takedown Notice’ in the subject line and all the content required to be in a DMCA Takedown Notice per the list above.

By emailing, you are notifying VUGA Enterprises LLC of an alleged copyright infringement and unlawful use of your copyright. You are also requesting that the infringing material be removed immediately and that the infringer is informed of this notice and ceases any further postings of the infringing material.

By doing so, you also state that the sending of a DMCA Takedown Notice via email is made in good faith with the reasonable belief that the use of the described material in the manner complained is not authorized by you, your agents, or the law and falls outside of Fair Use guidelines.

You also swear, under the penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that you are the owner of the copyrighted material involved. All cases of perjury or abuse of the DMCA process will be referred to proper law enforcement agencies.
