PROCEDURE FOR MAKING CLAIMS OF COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT

Effective date: July 16, 2014

Tango respects the intellectual property rights of others, and requests that users of the Tango Service do the same.
Our Terms and Conditions prohibit the posting or uploading of content that violates the intellectual property rights of a third party. If we receive a notice of infringement in accordance with the requirements set forth below, we will promptly remove or disable access to the allegedly infringing content.

Notice of Infringing Material

If you are a right holder, and you believe that your copyrighted work has been copied and is available through our Service in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, you may send Tango a notice of claim of copyright infringement pursuant to The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (DMCA), 17 USC §512(c).

To be effective, the notice must be in writing, sent to the address below, and must contain the following details:

  • A description of the specific copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed, with reasonably sufficient details to enable us to identify the work claimed to be infringed or, if multiple works are claimed to be infringed, a representative list of such works (for example: title, author, any registration or tracking number);

  • A description of where the work that you claim is infringing is located on the Tango Service, with reasonably sufficient detail to enable us to identify and locate the material that is claimed to be infringing;

  • Your contact information so that we can contact you (including your full legal name, mailing address, telephone number, and email address);

  • If possible, provide information sufficient to permit us to notify the user(s) who posted the content that allegedly contains infringing material.

  • If possible, provide screenshots or other materials that are helpful to identify the works in question. This is for identification only, not to “prove” substantive claims.

  • A statement by you that you have good faith belief that the disputed use of the copyrighted work is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent or the law. (“I have good faith belief that the disputed use of the copyrighted materials described above and contained on the Tango Service is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.”)

  • A statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that all information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner. (“I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.”)

  • The electronic or physical signature of the copyright owner, or the person to act on behalf of the copyright owner.

Then send this notice to:

Tango will respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement. If a Tango user infringes the rights of a copyright owner, Tango may block, suspend, or terminate the user’s access to the Tango Service.

Counter-Notification

If material that you have posted to a service controlled or operated by Tango has been taken down, you may file a counter-notification pursuant to DMCA Section 17 USC §512(g). To be effective, the counter-notification must be in writing, and sent to the address below, and contains the following details:

  • Identification of the specific material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the specific location at which the material appeared before it was removed or disabled (An optional screen shot is recommended.);

  • Your contact information so that we can contact you (including your full legal name, mailing address, telephone number, and email address);

  • Include the following statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief that the material identified above was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material so removed or disabled.”

  • Include a statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that all information in your counter notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on behalf of the copyright owner. (“I hereby state that the information in this notice is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that I am the owner, or authorized to act on behalf of the owner, of the material or of an exclusive right in the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled”);

  • Include a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for judicial district in which your address is located or, if your address is outside the USA, for any judicial district in which Tango may be found and that you will accept service of process from the person who submitted a notice in compliance with section 17 USC § 512(c)(1)(C) of the DMCA, or an agent of such person, as generally described above;

  • Your electronic or physical signature.
