Copyright Infringement Notification

To file a copyright infringement notification with us, you will need to send a written communication to us with all of the following information in it, using this format:

  1. Include a statement telling us that you have found images or text on Filmitem which you believe infringes your copyright (for example, "I hereby confirm that I believe the image/text identified below infringes my copyright").
  2. Tell us which country your copyright applies to.
  3. Tell us the title of the page concerned and the full URL for its page.
  4. Explain to us how the content infringes your copyright (e.g. the text is copied, the entire image is a copy of an original work made by you, etc.)
  5. Identify the type (e.g. a film, a piece of music, a book, etc.) and details (e.g. title, publisher, dates, etc.) of the copyright work which you own the rights to and which you believe has been infringed. If this information is available on the Internet, it is helpful to send us a link.
  6. Provide us with your contact information so that we can get in touch with you (email address is preferred).
  7. Let us have the contact information which we can pass on to the submitter of the video concerned, so that they can get in touch with you to resolve your complaint directly (email address is preferred).
  8. Include the following statement: "I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted work described above is not authorised by the copyright owner (or by a third party who is legally entitled to do so on behalf of the copyright owner) and is not otherwise permitted by law."
  9. I swear that the information contained in this notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or have an exclusive right in law to bring infringement proceedings with respect to its use.
  10. Sign the notice. If you are providing notice by email, a scanned physical signature or a valid electronic signature will be accepted.

Make sure you know whether the content that you have seen on Filmitem infringes your copyright. If you are not sure what your rights are, or whether your copyright has been infringed, you should check with a legal adviser first. Be aware that there may be adverse legal consequences in your country if you make a false or bad faith allegation of copyright infringement by using this process. Don't make false claims!

Please also note that the information provided in this legal notice may be forwarded to the person who provided the allegedly infringing content.

Claimant information will be published on the FIlmitem site in place of disabled content.
