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 or content that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or have access disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material; 4.

The following statement: “I have 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. The following statement: “The information in this notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, I swear that I am the copyright owner or that I am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.”
Upon receipt of the written notification containing the information as outlined in 1 through 6 above:
1. American Disposal Services will remove or disable access to the content that is alleged to be infringing; 2. American Disposal Services will forward the written notification to the alleged infringer; and 3. American Disposal Services will take reasonable steps to promptly notify the alleged infringer that we have removed or disabled access to the content.
DMCA Infringement Counter Notification. Pursuant to the DMCA, after the alleged infringer receives a notice of infringement from American Disposal Services, the alleged infringer will have the opportunity to respond to American Disposal Services with a counter notification (“Counter Notification”). To be effective, a Counter Notification must be a written communication provided to American Disposal Services’ designated copyright agent, and must include the following:
1. A physical or electronic signature of the alleged infringer; 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 disabled; 3.

Upon the copyright agent’s receipt of a Counter Notification containing the information as outlined in 1 through 4 above, the DMCA provides that the removed material will be restored or access re-enabled and we will comply with this requirement as required by law, provided that the designated agent has not received notice from the original complaining party 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 our network.
