Honateez operates an online platform that enables its users to create and sell their own merchandise, including T-shirts. Our policies prohibit our users from infringing upon the intellectual property rights of third parties, including copyright, trademark, and other related rights. If you believe that a Honateez user has violated your intellectual property rights, please follow the procedure outlined below.
A. Reporting Intellectual Property Infringement: Our policy is to promptly block or remove any content that we believe in good faith to be infringing upon the intellectual property rights of third parties, upon receipt of a compliant notice. We also terminate access to our service for repeat infringers. If you believe that content on the Honateez service infringes upon your copyright or other intellectual property rights, please send a notice of infringement to our Designated Agent, as listed below, including the following information:
- Identification of the copyrighted work or other intellectual property that has allegedly been infringed, including any applicable registration numbers.
- Identification of the allegedly infringing content, including a description of how it uses your copyrighted work or other intellectual property in a way that constitutes infringement, and where it is located on the Honateez service with sufficient detail for us to verify its existence.
- Your contact information, including your full name, mailing address, telephone number, and email address.
- A statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright holder, its agents, or the law.
- A statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the information in your notice is accurate and that you are the rights holder or authorized to act on behalf of the rights holder.
- Your electronic or physical signature, or that of the authorized person acting on behalf of the rights holder.
B. Upon receipt of a bona fide infringement notice, we will take the following actions:
- Remove or disable access to the allegedly infringing content.
- Notify the member whose content has been removed or disabled.
- Terminate the access of repeat infringers.
C. To provide a counter-notice to the Designated Agent, the notified member must include the following information:
- Identification of the content that has been removed or disabled, including where it appeared on the Honateez service before it was removed or disabled.
- A statement by the notified member, made under penalty of perjury, that they have a good faith belief that the content was removed or blocked as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the content in question.
- Contact information for the notified member, including their full name, mailing address, telephone number, and email address.
- A statement by the notified member that they consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal Court for the judicial district in which their address is located or, if their address is outside of the USA, for the judicial district in which Honateez is located, and that they will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.
- The notified member’s electronic or physical signature.
If we receive a counter-notice from the notified member, we may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party, informing them that we may replace the removed content or cease disabling it within ten business days. Unless the rights owner files an action seeking a court order against the member, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, within 10 to 14 business days or more, at our discretion. Please note that under Section 512(f) of the DMCA, any person who knowingly misrepresents that content or activity is infringing may be subject to liability for damages, including attorney’s fees.
