14.4 Procedure to Supply a Counter-Notice to Thinkific

If the Content provider, or user believes that the Content that was removed or to which access was disabled is either not infringing, or the Content provider or user believes that it has the right to post and use such Content
from the copyright owner, the copyright owner’s agent, or pursuant to the law, the Content provider or user must send a counter-notice containing the following information to Thinkific’s Support Team listed below:

  1. A physical or electronic signature of the Content provider or user;
  2. Identification of the Content that is claimed to be infringing;
  3. A statement that the Content provider or user has a good faith belief that the infringement notification was received as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the Content; and
  4. Content provider’s or user’s name, address, telephone number, and, if available, e-mail address and a statement that such person or entity consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal Court for the judicial district in which the Content provider’s or user’s address is located, or if the Content provider’s or user’s address is located outside the United States, for any judicial district in which Thinkific is located, and that such person or entity will accept Services of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.

If a counter-notice is received by Thinkific’s Support Team, Thinkific will restore access to the Content and notify the original complaining party. The Content will then remain published unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the Content provider or user.
