|FAMILY GUARDIAN COPYRIGHT AND DIGITAL MILLENIUM COPYRIGHT ACT (DMCA) POLICY
TABLE OF CONTENTS:
This policy is intended to implement the procedures set forth in 17 U.S.C. Section 512 and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act ("DMCA") for the reporting of alleged copyright infringement. It is the policy of Family Guardian (FG) (the "Ministry") to respect the legitimate rights of copyright owners and their agents and representatives. Users of any part of the ministry computing system are required to respect the legal protections provided by applicable copyright law.
We emphasize at the beginning of this article that:
Any attempt by any third party or platform to classify information available through this website as “public domain” is therefore declared to be a misrepresentation and a THEFT of intellectual property.
Lastly, for the definition of “public domain”, we rely on the following definition:
Pursuant to 17 U.S.C. §107, the information and materials provided through this website which do not bear a copyright notice associated with this ministry constitute a "fair use" of the materials provided. They are distributed exclusively with the intent of:
Materials are NOT provided for or intended for any commercial purpose whatsoever and therefore do not constitute a "commercial use" of third party materials without the express consent of the owner. Some of our Youtube videos may contain advertisements, but rest assured that we DID NOT authorize them and they appear ONLY because a third party with matching content HIJACKED our video for their own benefit. For such cases, we eventually remove such content to ensure that our videos do not even "appear" commercial.For further information on "commercial speech", see:
Commercial Speech, Form #05.015
Any attempt to obstruct or interfere with this ministry, its activities, or the dissemination of information on this website or its Youtube channel shall be regarded as an attempt to:
Several government works are posted on this website. Pursuant to 17 U.S.C. §105, these works are NOT protected by the copyright act and may be freely downloaded and shared. Such works include, but are not necessarily limited to:
All of the information and materials posted on this website are protected by the following copyright and license agreements:
In order to quote or reuse our materials you must:
Why do we insist that those who quote or reuse our materials must be members? Because use by non-members is likely to be biased and prejudiced, which will inevitably lead primarily to unwarranted criticism by those with a financial motive who want to enrich themselves by slandering others. Members, on the other hand, may not have a commercial motivation for obtaining or using our materials, and hence, their use cannot be enjoinable, subject to rebuke, or regulated in any way by any government. This will preserve the credibility and honor of both us and them in learning and enforcing the law.
When contacting us via the Contact Us page to pursue permission to reuse our materials, please ensure that you completely read and follow the "IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL WHO COMMUNICATE WITH SEDM VIA PHONE, EMAIL, OR THIS PAGE:" at the end of the page and provide all the information requested there.
The Ministry's Designated Agent to receive notification of alleged infringement under the DMCA is:
Family Guardian (FG)
Thunder Bay, Ontario
Click here to send an email to the Copyright Agent.
(This email address is only for copyright infringement claims.You will not receive a reply if the matter is not a copyright issue.)
Upon receipt of proper notification of claimed infringement, Ministry will follow the procedures outlined in this policy and in the DMCA.
The following elements must be included in your copyright infringement claim:
Failure to include all of the above information may result in a delay of the processing or the DCMA notification.
All users of any part of the Ministry website must comply with all applicable copyright laws. However, if the Ministry receives proper notification of claimed copyright infringement, it will respond expeditiously by removing, or disabling access to, the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity. The Ministry will comply with the appropriate provisions of the DMCA upon receiving any counter notification.
Please allow at least three business days to process any complaint or counter-notification. The Ministry will process these items as rapidly as possible, but cannot predict the number of active items it may have at any given time.
Infringement of the copyrights of others violates the Terms of Service for all of the Ministry's computing systems and networks. Under appropriate circumstances, Ministry may restrict or terminate the access of its system or network users who are repeat infringers. The Ministry will cooperate with copyright holders if it believes that any repeat infringer's activity is both (a) persistent and (b) willful and/or for purposes of financial gain, and such cooperation may include, among other things, the release of otherwise private user information after appropriate notification and (if necessary) due process of law.
This DMCA policy is effective as of August 28, 2011
