VIII. Digital Millennium Copyright Act Policy: BottleCapps takes intellectual property rights very seriously and demands the same from all Users. BottleCapps will respond to allegations of copyright violations in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act [17 U.S.C. 512] (the “DMCA”). The DMCA provides a process for a copyright owner to give notification to BottleCapps concerning alleged copyright infringement (“Notice of Infringement”). When a valid Notice of Infringement is received, BottleCapps shall respond under this process by taking down the offending Content. In accordance with the DMCA, upon taking down the Content, BottleCapps shall take reasonable steps to contact the owner of the removed Content so that a counter-notification (“Counter Notice”) may be filed. On receiving a valid Counter Notice, BottleCapps will generally restore the Content in question, unless BottleCapps receives notice from the original provider of the Notice of Infringement that a legal action has been filed seeking a court order to restrain the alleged infringer from engaging in the infringing activity.
THESE NOTICES OF INFRINGEMENT AND COUNTER NOTICES ARE REAL-WORLD LEGAL NOTICES PROVIDED OUTSIDE THE AGREEMENT. BOTTLECAPPS MAY PROVIDE COPIES OF SUCH NOTICES TO THE PARTICIPANTS IN THE DISPUTE OR THIRD PARTIES, AT BOTTLECAPPS’S DISCRETION AND AS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR BY PROPER LEGAL, GOVERNMENTAL, OR REGULATORY AUTHORITY; THE AGREEMENT DOES NOT PROTECT INFORMATION PROVIDED IN THESE NOTICES.
a. Notice of Infringement: If you are a copyright owner and have a good faith belief that any Content posted on or transferred through the System infringes your copyright(s), you may send BottleCapps’ “Designated Copyright Agent”, as identified hereinafter, written Notice of Infringement pursuant to the DMCA. This Notice of Infringement must contain the information specified below in the following format:
Mail: Critical Telephone Applications, Inc.
Attn: Designated Copyright Agent
300 East Royal Lane, Bldg. 2, Suite 215
Irving, Texas 75039
Subject: DMCA Notice
Be advised that failure to comply with all of the above requirements may invalidate your Notice of Infringement under the DMCA. BottleCapps’ response to a proper Notice of Infringement will be to remove or disable access to the Content claimed to be infringing and notify the alleged infringer of your claim so he or she can submit a Counter Notice to BottleCapps.
b. Counter Notice: If Your Content was removed or access was blocked and you have a good faith belief that it is not infringing on any copyrighted material, you may send BottleCapps a written Counter Notice pursuant to Section 512 of the DMCA. The Counter Notice must contain the information specified below in the following format:
Mail: Critical Telephone Applications, Inc.
Attn: Designated Copyright Agent
300 East Royal Lane, Bldg. 2, Suite 215
Irving, Texas 75039
Subject: DMCA Notice
Be advised that failure to comply with all of the above requirements may invalidate your Counter Notice under the DMCA. If the Designated Copyright Agent receives your valid Counter Notice, BottleCapps may restore your removed Content or cease disabling it within ten to fourteen (10-14) business days, unless BottleCapps receives notice from the alleged copyright owner (who filed the initial Notice of Infringement) that said party has filed a court action seeking to stop your alleged infringement.
IX. Trademark Notice: You agree that in the event that BottleCapps receives a written demand alleging that any of Your Content infringes upon, dilutes, tarnishes, or otherwise violates a party’s trademark rights, BottleCapps may in its sole discretion, remove or disable access to such Content until BottleCapps receives either: (a) written confirmation from the party sending such demand that the demand is withdrawn or has been resolved or (b) you submit sufficient evidence to satisfactorily rebut the allegations contained in such demand, the adequacy of such evidence to be determined by BottleCapps in BottleCapps’ sole discretion and which BottleCapps may reject for any reason without penalty or liability to you. In order for BottleCapps to accept such rebuttal, you expressly acknowledge and agree that such rebuttal shall include: 1) the information set forth in Section VIII hereinabove, except that the such information shall relate to the disputed trademark at issue rather than disputed copyrighted material and 2) an express, irrevocable, and binding obligation pursuant to which you shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless BottleCapps from damages, costs, or expenses that BottleCapps may incur, in any manner whatsoever, arising out of or in connection with the disputed Content and BottleCapps’ restoration thereof. The procedures of the DMCA apply only to copyrighted works and expressly exclude any other forms of intellectual property rights, including any rights in trademarks; the process hereinabove is intended only to provide a convenient mechanism for addressing trademark disputes and does not, and shall not, be construed, as imposing any obligation on BottleCapps under the DMCA with regards to response times or the like.

You further assign to BottleCapps, during the full copyright or patent terms and any extensions or renewals of that term, all copyrights and patents in and to the Derivative Work.
