Visionary Communications, LLC (“Visionary,” “we,” or “our”) is committed to complying with U.S. copyright and related laws, and expects all our customers, users, and visitors (collectively and each individually, “users”) to comply with these laws. Users may not store any material or content on, or access, share, or disseminate any material or content over, any of our product or service offerings that in any manner infringes upon third-party intellectual property rights, including U.S. copyright rights. Visionary does not own these systems. Visionary complies with all the laws of the land including 18 USC 2702. Visionary will not volunteer private information absent a valid court order.
We comply with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) and provide a method for copyright owners to communicate information about alleged infringements to us, and for us to inform our users about them, as further described below. Users will receive notice if a copyright owner identifies their Visionary account as having been used in connection with acts of alleged copyright infringement.
Visionary maintains a policy to terminate a Visionary account, in appropriate circumstances, provided said user is a repeat infringer of third-party copyright rights under our repeat infringer policy. Our policy includes notifying the repeat infringer with up to three separate notifications. After three notifications have been sent to the infringer over the lifetime of the account, Visionary will terminate the user’s service.
Any owner of a work under copyright protection who believes a user has infringed upon their rights under U.S. copyright law is encouraged to contact Visionary immediately with any relevant information regarding the claim. Pursuant to 17 USC 512(C)(3)(A)(vi), Visionary will accept notification (by submitting a claim to Visionary, the copyright owner is claiming under penalty of perjury that said notice is valid) of the copyright violation. In instances where an IP address identified in the request is associated with a NAT (Network Address Translation) gateway, and not an individual customer, Visionary may not have reasonably sufficient information to associate the offending party based solely on the IP address provided. In instances where the infringing IP is not owned or leased by Visionary, Visionary shall not be liable for monetary relief occurring from the transmission of material initiated by or at the direction of a third-party source other than the service provider. When Visionary receives a notice of claimed infringement that satisfies the requirements of the DMCA, we will respond expeditiously to either directly or indirectly (i) remove the allegedly infringing work(s) residing on our offerings or (ii) disable access to the work(s) residing on our offerings, if applicable.
Send notifications of claimed copyright infringement only to:
Visionary Communications, LLC
Copyright owners may use their own notification of claimed infringement form that satisfies the requirements of Section 512(c)(3) of the U.S. Copyright Act. Note: Under the DMCA, anyone who knowingly makes misrepresentations regarding alleged copyright infringement may be liable to Visionary, the alleged infringer, and the affected copyright owner for any damages incurred in connection with the removal, blocking, or replacement of allegedly infringing material.
If a user receives a DMCA notification of the alleged infringement and believes in good faith that the allegedly infringing works have been removed or blocked by mistake or misidentification, then that user may send us a counter-notification. When we receive a counter notification that satisfies the requirements of the DMCA, we will provide a copy of it to the person who sent the original infringement notification and will follow the DMCA’s procedures with respect to received counter notifications. In all events, all users expressly agree that Visionary will not be a party to any disputes or lawsuits regarding alleged copyright infringement.
Users may file counter notifications with Visionary’s designated agent using the contact information shown above. All counter notifications must satisfy the requirements of Section 512(g)(3) of the U.S. Copyright Act.
