Acehomeworktutors has developed the acehomeworktutors Intellectual Property Rights Owner program to protect the rights of the intellectual property owners, and consumers as well. Our program is designed to:
- Quickly remove listings reported by intellectual property rights owners to Acehomeworktutors across the acehomeworktutors family of websites, including acehomeworktutors.com but also Courserank.com.
- Proactively monitor and remove postings that violate acehomeworktutors policies designed to prevent the listing of infringing items on acehomeworktutors sites.
- Suspend users who repeatedly violate our policies and the rights of others.
- Cooperate with rights owners seeking personal information on alleged infringers.
Acehomeworktutors is not an expert in each individual intellectual property owner’s rights, and owners are ultimately responsible for protecting their own intellectual property. If you believe that a particular posting violates your intellectual property rights, we need your help to identify the listing.
How to report infringing content to acehomeworktutors
Only the intellectual property rights owner can report potentially infringing content to acehomeworktutors. If you are not the rights owner, you can help by reaching out to the rights owner and encouraging them to contact us.
To report a listing, you can fill out our Notice of Claimed Infringement form available through this page, print it out, and fax it to acehomeworktutors at (408) 855-8954, email it to [email protected], attn: Copyright Agent – Dana Jewell, or mail it to Copyright Agent, acehomeworktutors, Inc. 604 East Fremont St, Las Vegas, NV 89101.
Policy Against Repeat Infringers
acehomeworktutors does not tolerate the abuse of its website
by those who knowingly infringe on the intellectual property rights of content owners. Our policy is simple: when we have a good faith,
reasonable belief that infringing material has been placed on one of our sites either through a notice of claimed infringement from a rights owner or
our own proactive efforts, we will: (1) promptly remove the infringing material; (2) send a message to the user posting the material informing
them of the takedown and providing them with links to educational information; and (3) warn first time offenders that posting infringing materials will
lead to suspension of acehomeworktutors account privileges. Should a review of the user’s account reveal that there have been prior postings of
infringing material, we will take further action up to and including the suspension of that user’s ability to post content on all acehomeworktutors sites.
Why was my listing removed?
Before a posting is removed, the rights owner must give us information that ensures that the person reporting the item is authorized to do so. It also allows us to correctly identify the material to be removed. If your posting is reported, you’ll receive an email notifying you that a rights owner requested your posting be removed.
We require the rights owner to provide us with an email address so you can contact them directly for more information about why your posting infringes their intellectual property rights. You can find the rights owner’s email address in the email you received when your posting was removed. If you have concerns or questions about why your posting was reported, please contact the content owner directly using the email address we provided.
Can I repost material that you have removed?
Generally, no. If your listing was reported by a rights owner, and you believe that your post was removed in error, try to contact the rights owner directly. The email we sent you about the removal will include their contact information. If the rights owner agrees that they made a mistake, have them email acehomeworktutors and we’ll allow you to relist your item.
A counter notice is a form provided by acehomeworktutors in compliance with the requirements of the federal Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Find out what information you need to provide when filing a counter notice. (http://www.citmedialaw.org/legal-guide/responding-dmca-takedown-notice-targeting-your-content)
Once we receive a valid counter notice, we’ll provide a copy of the notice to the rights owner and inform them that the content will be reinstated after 10 business days if they don’t inform us that they have filed an action seeking a court order to restrain you from relisting. If you want to file a counter notice, contact us at [email protected]
If you continue to post infringing material or repost items that have been reported to and taken down by acehomeworktutors, acehomeworktutors may suspend your ability to post content on all acehomeworktutors sites.
Can I copy portions of textbooks and include them in my postings to other acehomeworktutors properties?
Generally, you may not copy portions of copyrighted works and include them in your postings without permission from the rights owner. Postings that include excerpts from copyrighted works may be blocked, removed by acehomeworktutors or reported by the intellectual property owner. acehomeworktutors does not permit postings that contain portions of or whole textbooks, ebooks, test banks, solutions manuals, or teachers editions books, unless you are the author of such materials.
Are a professor’s lectures copyrighted? Can I legally post lecture notes on Notehall?
Many professors do not have copyrights in their lectures, as the lectures are often not fixed in a tangible medium nor sufficiently original to meet the standard for copyrightability. Many classes are an interactive exercise between students and professors, and the professor certainly doesn’t have a copyright in student input, either in or out of class.
Even so, acehomeworktutors requires class notes to be truly original, independent works, not recordings of the professor’s lectures. Your class notes should include information raised by students in or outside of class, and independent thought, analysis and commentary. Class notes must be substantially rewritten after class and include independent material; notes that use a lecturer’s words or that are not carefully reviewed, rethought and rewritten after class are not useful to or appreciated by students, and may be removed by acehomeworktutors.
Still, if a professor reviews your notes and reports to acehomeworktutors that the notes do, in fact, violate their copyright, acehomeworktutors will remove the notes. If a professor informs you that they do not allow students to sell notes from their lectures, or if your school has a policy against the sale of class notes, you should honor those wishes and immediately stop posting class notes. Professors may use the CHIPRO program to report infringing materials.
