If you have received a copyright notification indicating content you have posted on our Website has been removed or disabled, and you believe that the material reported in the copyright notification was misidentified or removed in error, you have the right to file a counter-notice challenging the claim. For your counter-notice to be effective, it must be in writing and include the following information:
