Reporting a Violation or Infringement of Your Rights.
Under the laws of most countries, copyright is the legal right that protects original works of authorship, such as books, music, film, and art.
In most countries, copyright does not protect facts, ideas, systems, or methods of operation. Some of these may be protected by other rights. Generally, copyright does not protect facts and ideas, but it may protect the original words or images that express that idea.
However, copyright does not protect all expressions. As explained by the U.S. Copyright Office, “copyright does not protect names, titles, slogans, or short phrases. In some cases, these things may be protected as trademarks.”
If you believe your copyright-protected work was posted on Naijatowncrier.com without authorization, you may submit a copyright infringement notification. These requests should only be submitted by the copyright owner or an agent authorized to act on the owner’s behalf.
The fastest and easiest way to notify Naijatowncrier.com of alleged copyright infringement is via our e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you choose to request removal of content by submitting an infringement notification, please remember that you are initiating a legal process.
Please note that filing a report of intellectual property infringement is a serious matter with legal consequences. Any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing could be liable for damages pursuant to section 512(f) of the DMCA or similar laws in other jurisdictions or countries.
We implement a policy where, in appropriate circumstances, we will disable and/or terminate the accounts of users who are repeat infringers.
