The user will not be allowed to resubmit the material and may have all submitted materials removed and account terminated for repeated offenses.

COUNTER-NOTICE

If an user believes that his/her material was removed or access was disabled in error -- that is, the user has a well-grounded belief that the material is not infringing -- the user may submit a counter-notice pursuant to Section 512(g)(2) and (3) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. That notice should be directed to our designated agent and must include the following:

1. A physical or electronic signature of the user submitting the notice;

2. 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 access to it was disabled;

3. A statement under penalty of perjury that the user has a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification f the material to be removed or disabled;

4. The user's name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that the subscriber consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the address is located, or if the user's address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which SunFrog Shirts is located, and that the user will accept service of process from the person who provided the initial Notice & Takedown Request or an agent of such person.

If counter-notice is received by the designated agent, SunFrog Shirts may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that SunFrog Shirts may replace the removed material or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the intellectual property owner files an action seeking a court order against the user, the removed material may be replaced or access to it restored in 10 to 14 business days after receipt of the counter-notice, at SunFrog Shirts' discretion.
