Just as Sony Computer Entertainment America, LLC. (“SCEA”) requires users of our Sites to respect our copyrights and those of our affiliates, licensors and business partners, we respect the copyrights of others. To that end, we have adopted this Copyright Policy in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“Copyright Act”) (17 U.S.C. 512 et seq.).
Once SCEA’s representative who has been designated to receive notification of claimed copyright infringement (“Designated Agent”) – whose name and contact information is noted below – receives proper notice of the alleged infringement, or if SCEA otherwise comes to believe in good faith that any specific content, including user generated content, on the Sites contain material that infringes copyright (“Disputed Content”), SCEA may (1) promptly remove or block access to the Disputed Content or (2) deny access to the Sites to users that repeatedly violate copyright or other intellectual property rights. SCEA will take reasonable steps to notify a user who has uploaded Disputed Content if that Disputed Content is subsequently removed or disabled.
If you believe in good faith that your copyrighted work has been reproduced on the Site without authorization in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, you or a person authorized to act on your behalf may notify our Designated Agent:
Legal & Business Affairs Department
Sony Computer Entertainment America LLC.
2207 Bridgepointe Pkwy
San Mateo, CA 94404
By phone: 650-655-8000
By email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Pursuant to federal law, your notice must include the following information:
Supplying a Counter-Notice Regarding Alleged Copyright Infringement
If you are the provider of the Disputed Content and believe a copyright infringement notice has been wrongly submitted against you as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the claimed copyrighted material, you may send a counter-notification to our Designated Agent (whose address is included in Paragraph 1 above). The counter notification must provide the following information:
If our Designated Agent receives a counter-notice from you, SCEA will send a copy of it to the original complaining party informing that person or entity that SCEA may replace the removed Disputed Content or cease disabling access to it. Please note that when we forward the counter-notice, it includes your personal information. By submitting a counter-notice, you consent to having your information revealed in this way. We will not forward the counter-notice to any party other than the complaining party.
Unless the Designated Agent receives notice from the original complaining party that the original complaining party has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain the user who posted the Disputed Content from engaging in infringing activity relating to the Disputed Content on the Site, SCEA will replace or restore access to the Disputed Content on the Site or permit the user to re-post the Disputed Content.
