It is our policy to respond to allegations of copyright violations in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”). If you believe that your copyrighted work has been copied and is accessible on the Website in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please notify the University’s designated Copyright Agent at:
333 South Twin Oaks Valley Road, San Marcos, CA 92096-001
Please note that you may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) if you materially misrepresent that material is infringing.
Your notification must include the following information:
Only DMCA notices should go to the University’s Copyright Agent designated above. Communications regarding other matters directed to that address or DMCA notices that do not comply with the requirements of the DMCA may be ignored.
When a valid DMCA notification is received, we will respond by taking down the offending content. We will then take reasonable steps to contact the owner of the removed content so a counter-notification may be filed. Upon receipt of a valid counter-notification, we will generally restore the content in question, unless we receive notice from you, the notifying copyright owner, that a legal action has been filed seeking a court order to restrain the alleged infringer from engaging in the infringing activity. The University may provide copies of such notices to the participants in the dispute or to any other third parties, at our discretion and as required by law.
The University may, in appropriate circumstances, terminate an account holder or user of the Website if he or she is a repeat infringer. If you believe that an account holder or user is a repeat infringer, please follow the instructions above to contact the University’s DMCA Copyright Agent and provide information sufficient for us to verify that the account holder or user is a repeat infringer.
