Copyright Violations Reporting
It is our policy to respond to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement. The following describes the information that should be present in these notices. It is designed to make submitting notices of alleged infringement to MIX ‘N SIP as straightforward as possible while reducing the number of notices that we receive that are fraudulent or difficult to understand or verify. The form of notice specified below is consistent with the form suggested by the United States Digital Millennium Copyright Act (the text of which can be found at the U.S. Copyright Office Web Site, http://www.copyright.gov) but we will respond to notices of this form from other jurisdictions as well.
Regardless of whether we may be liable for such infringement under local country law or United States law, our response to these notices may include removing or disabling access to material claimed to be the subject of infringing activity. If we remove or disable access in response to such a notice, we will make a good-faith attempt to contact the owner of the content so that they may make a counter notification. We may also document notices of alleged infringement on which we act.
To file a notice of infringement with us, you must provide a written communication that sets forth the items specified below. Please note that you will be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) if you materially misrepresent that a product or activity is infringing your copyrights. Accordingly, if you are not sure whether material available online infringes your copyright, we suggest that you first contact an attorney.
Please use the following format for infringement notifications:
1. Identify in sufficient detail the copyrighted work that you believe has been infringed upon (for example, “The copyrighted work at issue is the text that appears at the following <web address>”) or other information sufficient to specify the copyrighted work being infringed (for example, “The copyrighted work at issue is <blank> by <blank>, published by <blank>, ISBN #<blank>”).
2. Identify the material that you claim is infringing the copyrighted work listed in item #1 above.
3. Provide information reasonably sufficient to permit MIX ‘N SIP to contact you (email address is preferred).
4. Include the following statement: “I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted materials described above as allegedly infringing is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.”
5. Include the following statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.”
6. Sign the paper and send it to us here.
The provider of affected content may make a counter notification pursuant to sections 512(g)(2) and (3) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. When we receive a counter notification, we may reinstate the material in question.
To file a counter notification with us, you must provide a written communication that sets forth the items specified below. Please note that you will be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) if you materially misrepresent that a product or activity is not infringing the copyrights of others. Accordingly, if you are not sure whether certain material infringes the copyrights of others, we suggest that you first contact an attorney.
Please use the following format for counter notifications:
1. Identify the specific URLs or other unique identifying information of material that MIX ‘N SIP has removed, or to which MIX ‘N SIP has disabled access.
2. Provide your name, address, telephone number, email address, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located (or Fulton County, Georgia if your address is outside of the United States), and that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification under subsection (c)(1)(C) or an agent of such person.
3. Include the following statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that I have a good faith belief that each item of content identified above was removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.”
4. Sign the paper and send it to us here.
Again, we may, in appropriate circumstances and at our discretion, suspend or terminate accounts of users who are repeat infringers of intellectual property rights of third parties. Please let us know immediately of users who you believe repeatedly violate our policies or the rights of others.
If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable, such provision will be struck and the remaining provisions will be enforced. In our sole discretion, we may assign this Agreement. Our failure to act with respect to a breach by you or others doesn’t waive our right to act with respect to subsequent or similar breaches. We do not guarantee we will take action against any or all breaches of this Agreement.
MIX ‘N SIP may disclose any content or electronic communication of any kind made through this site and associated email to satisfy any law, regulation or governmental request or if such disclosure is necessary or appropriate to operate this site or to protect the rights or properties of MIX ‘N SIP.
We may amend this Agreement at any time by posting the amended terms on this site. Except as stated elsewhere, all amended terms will automatically be effective 30 days after they are initially posted. Additionally, we may otherwise notify you of changes, but are not required to do so. You will abide by all additional restrictions displayed on this site as it may be updated. This Agreement may not be otherwise amended except in a writing hand signed by you and us.

This Agreement sets forth the entire understanding and agreement between us with respect to the subject matter hereof. The following Sections survive any termination of this Agreement: Content, Release and Liability, Registration Information, Indemnity, Notices, Legal Disputes, and General.
Unsolicited Ideas and Information: We do not accept or consider unsolicited ideas or proprietary materials. Therefore if you send us any ideas, information, or materials that you expect to retain any ownership rights in or receive any consideration for, we make no assurances that your ideas and material will be treated as confidential or proprietary and expressly disclaim any representation that we will ever pay for any ideas, information, or materials. The primary purpose of this policy is to avoid potential misunderstandings or disputes if our products or marketing strategies might seem similar to ideas or materials that you submit to us. Therefore, we request that you do not send us such ideas or materials to avoid any such misunderstandings.
