Groovebug DMCA Notice and Takedown Procedure

Groovebug LLC abides by the federal Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) by responding to notices of alleged infringement that comply with the DMCA and other applicable laws. As part of our response, we may remove or disable access to material in the Groovebug application that is claimed to be infringing, in which case we will make a good faith attempt to contact the person or information provider who submitted the affected material so that they may make a counter notification, also in accordance with the DMCA.

Please note that the Groovebug application displays licensed paid content hosted on third party websites, as well as content licensed pursuant to various open source licenses that permit its use in the Groovebug application.  Groovebug cannot remove such content since it resides on sites that Groovebug does not own or control. If you submit a notice of alleged infringement to Groovebug concerning content hosted on a third party site then Groovebug will be unable to remove that content, and you will need to contact the administrator of that website directly to have the content removed.

Before serving either a Notice of Infringing Material or Counter-Notification, you may wish to contact a lawyer to better understand your rights and obligations under the DMCA and other applicable laws. The following notice requirements are intended to comply with Groovebug’s rights and obligations under the DMCA and, in particular, section 512(c), and do not constitute legal advice.

To file a notice of infringing material for content on the Groovebug application, please provide a notification containing the following details:

2.Reasonably sufficient detail to enable us to identify and locate the material that is claimed to be infringing (for example, a screen shot of the page in the Groovebug application that contains the material);
