It is Arthur’s policy to comply fully with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and other applicable intellectual property laws (collectively the "Act"). This page lists our requirements under the Act for notice of copyright infringement and for responses to such a notice if you or your materials are accused.
We have appointed and registered a copyright agent to receive notifications of claimed infringement and have informed the U.S. Copyright Office of this appointment. You can contact our copyright agent below:
As explained in more detail below, the Act requires the removal or disabling of access to content claimed to be, or reasonably determined by Arthur, the subject of infringing activity. If the Act requires content to be removed from Arthur, we will remove the remove the content.
If you believe that content on Arthur, at the direction of a third party, violates any of your exclusive rights under United States copyright law, you must send a written communication to our Copyright Agent at the contact above. The written communication should include the following:
We have no other role to play either in prosecuting or defending claims of infringement, and cannot be held accountable in any case for damages, regardless of whether a claim of infringement is found to be true or false. Pursuant to the Act, you may be liable for damages, including court costs and attorneys fees, if you misrepresent that a product or activity is infringing your copyrights. If you are not sure whether material on Arthur infringes your copyright, we urge you to first consult an attorney.
Upon receipt of the above notice of infringement, we will respond expeditiously and remove, or disable access to, the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity as required by the Act. Our Copyright Agent will take reasonable steps to promptly notify the affected party who uploaded the material.
If we have removed your content from Arthur due to suspicion of copyright infringement, you may dispute the alleged infringement by sending a written communication to our Copyright Agent above. That written communication should include the following:
If you have served a counter notification complying with the above requirements, please note that we will promptly provide the person who provided the initial infringement statement with a copy of the counter notification and will inform such person that Arthur will replace the removed material or cease disabling access to it within 10-14 business days. We will then replace the removed material and cease disabling access to within 10-14 business days following receipt of the counter notice unless the copyright owner delivers to our Copyright Agent notice that it has filed an action seeking a court order. If we receive a notification from a copyright holder who has procured an enforceable injunction prohibiting Arthur from providing access to allegedly infringing material, we will follow the requirements of the injunction.
The policies and processes outlined above are applicable to copyright only. If you discover any content that you believe to be in infringement of any other intellectual property rights or in violation of our policies, please contact:
We may revise this policy at any time, including by posting a new version at this website.
