Procedures for Requesting Removal of Infringing Material
- identify in sufficient detail the copyrighted work(s) claimed to have been infringed;
- provide reasonably sufficient information to locate the material claimed to be infringing (e.g., a link to the page that contains the material);
- include a statement by the copyright owner or authorized agent that he or she has a good faith belief that the disputed use is unauthorized;
- include a statement that the information contained in the request is accurate and an attestation, under penalty of perjury, that the requesting party is the copyright owner or authorized agent;

Anyone who believes that his or her own copyrighted material has been removed by IFTA from the Site as a result of mistake or misidentification may submit a written counter-notice to IFTA’s designated copyright agent. To be effective, a counter-notice must:
- identify the material that has been removed or disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled
- include a statement, under penalty of perjury, that the submitting party has a good faith belief that the material in question was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled;
- include a statement consenting to the jurisdiction of the federal district court in which the submitting party’s address is located or, if the address is outside the United States, any judicial district in which IFTA may be found;
- include a statement that the submitting party will accept service of process from the party that filed the notice of alleged copyright infringement or the party’s agent;
- provide the submitting party’s name, address, and telephone number; and
- include the submitting party’s physical or electronic signature.
