Copyrights and Copyright AgentWe ask our users to respect the intellectual property of others. Pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. sec. 512 ("the DMCA"), IAC Search & Media, Inc. has designated an agent to receive Notifications of Claimed Copyright Infringement on its site, who can be reached as follows:
IAC Search & Media
If you believe in good faith that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide our copyright agent the following:
Pursuant to the DMCA, once we receive a properly prepared Notification asserting copyright infringement, we will de-link the allegedly infringing site until we receive a properly prepared Counter-Notification. Even after we de-link an allegedly infringing site, it is possible that the site will reappear once a further search is run, due to the technology that many search engines employ in conducting searches for our users. Therefore, a more effective way to remove allegedly infringing material is by filing a Notification of Claimed Copyright Infringement with the Internet service provider that hosts the website.
You may want to seek independent legal counsel before filing a notification or counter-notification.
Qbyrd.com and Search-results.com Trademark PolicyIAC Search & Media, Inc. asks its users and advertisers to respect the intellectual property of others. Advertisers are solely responsible for the content of their advertisements and the keywords they select for keyword targeted advertising. Such responsibility includes ensuring that their use of such content is not violative of any intellectual property rights of others, notably trademarks.
IAC Search & Media, Inc. is not a publisher of the advertisements provided or produced by advertisers and simply facilitates the placement of such advertisement using its proprietary technology. Therefore IAC Search & Media, Inc. cannot arbitrate disputes between advertisers and trademark owners.However, since IAC Search & Media, Inc. is mindful of the intellectual property rights of others, we are willing to briefly investigate good faith claims by trademark owners which may be brought to our attention. If we determine that a protected trademark is used in the content of an advertisement displayed on Teoma.com, we will request that the advertiser remove the allegedly infringing content.
Any investigation by IAC Search & Media, Inc. will be limited to claims concerning Sponsored Links. IAC Search & Media, Inc. will not investigate nor will respond to trademark claims with respect to listings or websites that appear in non-paid search results, including Web Results, and the Narrow Your Search and Expand Your Search Sections of the Teoma.com site. For any such claims, please contact the owner of the relevant web-sites.
We also encourage trademark owners to make their claims directly with the owners of the allegedly infringing web-sites or advertisements, or the Internet service provider that hosts such websites. This is a much more effective way to resolve trademark claims, particularly because advertisers may have similar advertisements on other sites.
