If you believe your content on was mistakenly disabled by a DMCA takedown request, you have the right to contest the takedown by submitting a counter notice. If you do, we will wait 10-14 days and then re-enable your content unless the copyright owner initiates a legal action against you before then.

We require you to fill out all fields of a counter notice completely, because a counter notice is a legal statement — not just to us, but to the complaining party. As we mentioned above, if the complaining party wishes to keep the content disabled after receiving a counter notice, they will need to initiate a legal action seeking a court order to restrain you from engaging in infringing activity relating to the content on Snowdrift.coop. In other words, you might get sued (and you consent to that in the counter notice).
***Your Counter Notice Will Be Published.***
As noted in our [DMCA Guide](https://git.snowdrift.coop/sd/legal/blob/master/DMCA/DMCA-guide.md#d-transparency), **after redacting personal information,** we publish all complete and actionable counter notices at our [public repository](https://git.snowdrift.coop/sd/legal/tree/master/DMCA/notice-archives/). Please also note that, although we will only publicly publish redacted notices, we may provide a complete unredacted copy of any notices we receive directly to any party whose rights would be affected by it. If you are concerned about your privacy, you may have a lawyer or other legal representative file the counter notice on your behalf.

Snowdrift.coop exercises little discretion in this process other than determining whether the notices meet the minimum requirements of the DMCA. It is up to the parties (and their lawyers) to evaluate the merit of their claims, bearing in mind that notices must be made under penalty of perjury.

The DMCA provides two procedures for handling alleged copyright infringements by users of online services:
- DMCA [takedown notices](https://git.snowdrift.coop/sd/legal/blob/master/DMCA/DMCA-takedowns.md) are used by copyright owners to ask a service to take down content they believe to be infringing.
- DMCA [takedown notices](https://gitlab.com/snowdrift/legal/blob/master/DMCA/DMCA-takedowns.md) are used by copyright owners to ask a service to take down content they believe to be infringing.
Because U.S. copyright law requires no registration of copyrights, you create copyrighted content every time you produce any copyrightable work — even simple works like emails or plain text replies on a forum. If someone else is using your copyrighted content in an unauthorized manner, you can send a host service a DMCA takedown notice to request that the infringing content be changed or removed.

Maybe the person sending the takedown notice does not hold the copyright or did not realize that you have a license or made some other mistake in their takedown notice. Since a host usually cannot know if there has been a mistake, the DMCA counter notice allows you to let us know and ask that we put the content back up.

If the use is only a small quotation in a transformative context, it would be fair use. But an unlicensed use of a substantial portion of a copyrighted work could justify sending in a take-down notice.

For example, facts (including data) are generally not copyrightable. Words and short phrases are generally not copyrightable. URLs and domain names are generally not copyrightable.
