Copyright Infringement

It is the policy of THE TEESDALE MERCURY to respond to claims of copyright infringement. We will promptly process and investigate notices of alleged infringement by third parties.

If you believe that your copyrighted work has been infringed under U.K. copyright law and is accessible on this web site, please notify us by contacting us at our registered address.

Notification of claims of copyright infringement by third parties must be a written communication to the Teesdale Mercury that includes the following:

  1. A physical or electronic signature of a person authorised to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
  2. Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
  3. Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit THE TEESDALE MERCURY to locate the material;

  5. A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
  6. A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

Upon receipt of a valid notification of alleged copyright infringement by a third party, The Teesdale Mercury 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.

You should be aware that claimants who make misrepresentations concerning copyright infringement may be liable for any damages, including costs and solicitors' fees, incurred by the alleged infringer or by the Teesdale Mercury, if injured by relying upon such misrepresentation in removing or disabling access to the material or activity claimed to be infringing.

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 Teesdale Mercury'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. Your name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the address is located and that you will accept service of process from the complainant who provided the original notification or an agent of such person or entity.

If the Teesdale Mercury receives a valid counter notification, it shall provide the complainant with a copy of the counter notification, inform the complainant that it will replace the removed material or cease disabling access to it in 10 to 14 days from receipt of the counter notification, and replace the removed material or cease disabling access to it in 10 to 14 business days, provided that the Teesdale Mercury has not received notice from the complainant that an action has been filed seeking a court order to restrain the alleged infringer from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on the Teesdale Mercury 's system.
