Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) Notice

If you believe that material available on our platform infringes on your copyright(s), please notify us by submitting a DMCA notice. After we receive a valid and complete notice, we will investigate, remove the material, and make a good faith attempt to contact the user who uploaded the material, via email.

TheSuccessCreator.com is a publishing platform where publishers often use copyrighted materials in commentary or journalism, or transform the materials into something original. As such, before submitting a DMCA notice, it’s important to consider whether the material used falls under fair use. If you are not sure whether material infringes on your copyright, or if it is subject to fair use protections, you should first consider seeking legal advice. This document isn’t a legal advice and shouldn’t be taken as such.

You may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) if you materially misrepresent that material or activity infringes on your copyright.

Your DMCA notice will be forwarded to the party that made the material available, and also may be sent to third parties. In addition, you are required to consider the possible fair use implications, as a result of Lenz v. Universal. We reserve the right to challenge abuses of the DMCA process, and your use of this form does not waive that right.

Please follow these steps to file a notice:

As required by the DMCA, we have a policy to terminate users and/or sites that we consider to be repeat infringers. Although we won’t share the specifics of our repeat infringer policy (we don’t want anyone to game the system, after all), we believe that it strikes the right balance: it protects the rights of copyright owners and protects legitimate users from wrongful termination. Please note that notices that are successfully countered, rejected on fair use grounds, or deemed to be fraudulent are not counted against a content publisher.

You can send your complaint to our designated DMCA agent at: dmca@thesuccesscreator.com

You must include the following:

What Happens Next

When a copyright holder (or someone acting on their behalf) submits a Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) takedown notice to us:

Publishers cannot, under any circumstances, republish the allegedly infringing content. Republishing content that was removed after receipt of a valid DMCA takedown notice could result in the publisher being permanently suspended from TheSuccessCreator.com. If the counter notice procedure is followed, we’ll restore the content at the appropriate time.

DMCA Counter Notice

If you are a publisher on our platform and have received a Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA) Infringement Notice that you believe was submitted in error, you may submit a counter notice. Counter notices must be submitted by the TheSuccessCreator.com user who uploaded the material or an agent authorized to act on their behalf.

Please note that under Section 512(f) of the DMCA, any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification may be subject to liability. Thus, if you are not sure that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification, you should first consider seeking legal advice.

Counter notices must be sent to our designated agent at: dmca@TheSuccessCreator.com
