Upon receipt of a valid notification of alleged copyright infringement by a third party, PRHI shall remove or disable access to the material identified in the notice, forward the written notification to the alleged infringer, and take reasonable efforts to notify the alleged infringer that it has removed or disabled access to this material.

If a notice of copyright infringement has been filed against you, you may file a counter notification with the Designated Agent at the address listed above. To be effective, a counter notification must be a written communication provided to the PRHI's Designated Agent that includes the following:

 

  1. A physical or electronic signature;
  2. Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;
  3. A statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled; and
  4.

Claimants who make misrepresentations in their counter notification statement shall be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys' fees, incurred by any copyright owner or copyright owner's authorized licensee, or by PRHI, if injured by relying upon such misrepresentations in replacing the removed material or ceasing to disable access to it.
