How to report a copyright infringement

If you believe that material or content residing on or accessible through hamel infringes a copyright, please send a notice of copyright infringement to us at the email address above, containing the all of the following information:

  • A physical or electronic signature of a person authorised to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright that has been allegedly infringed.
  • Identification of the works or materials being infringed.
  • Identification of the material on hamel that is claimed to be infringing, including information regarding the location of the infringing materials that the copyright owner seeks to have removed, with sufficient detail so that we are capable of finding and verifying its existence.

    If the material is a document in a collection, state the title of the document, the name of the collection and of the account, and the date, time and country of access (if you are on a corporate network, tell us from what country the network is connecting to the internet, which might not be the country you are physically sitting in). If the material is for sale, state the pricing (amount(s) and currency) that you can see.

  • Contact information for yourself: a physical address, telephone number and email address.
  • A statement that you believe, in good faith, that the material identified is not authorised by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.
  • A statement made under penalty of perjury that the information provided by you is accurate, and that you are authorised to make the complaint on behalf of the copyright owner.

What to do if we've disabled your content and you think we shouldn't

If you provided disputed content that we removed (or disabled access to) and you believe it is not copyright-infringing, or believe you have the right from the copyright owner to post and use such material, then you must send us a counter-notice containing the following information

  • A physical or electronic signature of the person who is responsible for the material being posted, and if it is a group account with multiple users, a signature of an administrator of the account where the material was posted.
  • 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 disabled.
  • A statement that you believe in good faith that the material was removed or access disabled because of a mistake or misidentification of the material.
  • Contact information for yourself: a physical address, telephone number and email address
  • A statement that you, or your company if the content was posted through a group account, consent to:
    • either the jurisdiction of the Her Majesty's Courts of Justice of England and Wales if your address is in the United Kingdom, or
    • any judicial district in which hamel is located if your address is located outside the United Kingdom, and also
    • that you will accept service of process from the organisation or person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.

When searching on an exact phrase, using double quotes, you can allow a variation in the order and number of the words. For example, searching on 'come here':

None will only match 'come here'.

Allow ... 1 would match 'come here', 'here come' and 'come to here'.

Allow ... 3 would also match 'come to me here'.
