DMCA Copyright Infringement Claim and Counter-Claim Policy

If you believe in good faith that material on the website (the “Site”) infringes on your copyright, you (or your agent) may send Working Assumptions Foundation (“Working Assumptions”) a notification, in accordance with the requirements set forth in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (“DMCA”), requesting that Working Assumptions remove or block access to the claimed infringing material.

Such notification shall include thefollowing information, in accordance with the DMCA:

  • a physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the exclusive right that is claimed to be infringed;
  • identification of the copyrighted work(s) claimed to have been infringed;
  • a description of the claimed infringing material and where the claimed infringing material is located on the Site;
  • your address, telephone number, and email address;
  • a statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
  • a statement by you, under penalty of perjury, that the information in your notification is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the exclusive right that is claimed to be infringed.

Working Assumptions may send information provided in a notification to the person who provided the allegedly infringing work. If you believe in good faith that someone has wrongfully filed a notification of copyright infringement against you, the DMCA permits you to send Working Assumptions a counter-notification. Notifications and counter-notifications must meet the then current requirements
imposed by the DMCA and/or the Copyright Office; see

Working Assumptions will only respond to DMCA notifications and counter-notifications that it receives by mail or e-mail at the addresses below:
