Proprietary Rights. As between you and SC, SC owns or licenses all data, content, graphics, forms, artwork, images, photographs, functional components, audio clips, video clips, software and software concepts and documentation and other material on, in or made available through the Site (“Site Material”), as well as the selection, coordination, arrangement, and organization and enhancement of the Site Material. You agree not to remove or alter any copyright notice or any other proprietary notice on any Site Materials.  Under no circumstances will you have any rights of any kind in or to the Site, other than the right to use the Site in accordance with these Terms and the limited fair use described herein.  Fair use of copyrighted material includes the use of protected materials for non-commercial educational purposes, such as teaching, scholarship, research, criticism, commentary, and news reporting.  Unless otherwise noted, you may download or print text and image files from this Site without SC’s written permission solely for such purposes, and only if you comply with the following conditions: (a) the content may only be used for personal, educational or noncommercial purposes; (b) you must cite the author and source of the content; (c) none of the content may be altered or modified; and (d) you must comply with all other terms or restrictions which may be applicable to the individual file, image or text.

 

The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (“DMCA”).  The DMCA provides recourse to those who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law.  If you believe in good faith that materials hosted by us infringe your copyright, you may send us a notice requesting that we remove the material or block access to it.  The notice must include 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 allegedly infringed; (b) Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on the Site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works); (c) Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity and information reasonably sufficient to allow us to locate the material on the Site; (d) The name, address, telephone number, and email address of the complaining party; (e) 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 or the law; and (f) A statement that the information in the notification is accurate and is given under penalty of perjury, and that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send us a counter-notice.  Notices and counter-notices must meet current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.copyright.gov/ for details.  Notices and counter-notices under the DMCA, as well as all other communications addressed to us relating to these Terms, should be sent to Strongin Collection LLC c/o McGrail & Bensinger LLP, 888-C 8th Avenue #107, New York, NY 10019.  We strongly recommend that you consult your legal advisor before filing a notice or counter-notice.  Also, please be aware that penalties may apply for false claims under the DMCA.
