The information provided in your legal notice may be forwarded to the person who provided the allegedly infringing content, and in the case of a counter-notification, the person who submitted the original claim of copyright infringement.
After we sent the counter-notification, the claimant will have 10 business days in which to notify us that they have filed an action seeking a court order to restrain the user from engaging in infringing activity related to the material on BAAQMD EA’s website.  If we do not receive such notification, generally we will reinstate the material.
Repeat infringers may be terminated.
