Instructions for filing a Copyright Violation Complaint
As an ISP, EC Suite follows the procedures prescribed by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) for notification, takedown, and counter-notification. If you believe that an EC Suite client has something on a website that constitutes infringement of your copyrights, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (17 U.S.C. § 512) outlines the specific procedures for notifying the infringing party.
In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, you must provide EC Suite with ALL of the following information:
- A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is being infringed;
- Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed;
- Identification of the material that is allegedly infringing;
- The complaining party’s address, telephone number, and email address;
- A statement that the complaining party has a good-faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law; and
- A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
Please use the Notice of Copyright Infringement form to submit all the required information; the document is completed and signed electronically through our partner service, DocuSign.
With this information, EC Suite can take swift and serious action against any network user which may be in violation of copyright law, however, we cannot legally be considered to be “on notice” and thereby take any action until you have complied.
If you have any questions regarding our policies or procedures, you may contact one of our registered DMCA Agents:

Please note that EC Suite will forward your Notice of Copyright Infringement form, in its entirety, to EC Suite’s client.
You may only submit the Notice of Copyright Infringement Form for copyright infringement complaints in accordance with the DMCA. This form is not an acceptable way to notify EC Suite of any other type of infringement, and the complainant is responsible for seeking all available legal remedies for complaints not confined to this purpose.
