Copyright takedown notice
If your copyright-protected work was posted on Afranaxtv without authorization, you may submit a copyright infringement notification. Be sure to consider whether fair use, fair dealing, or a similar exception to copyright applies before you submit. These requests should be sent by the copyright owner or an agent authorized to act on the owner’s behalf.
The fastest and simplest way to submit a copyright takedown notice is through our Report Video.
The name you enter as copyright owner will be published on Afranaxtv in place of the turned off content. If you can give us a valid legal alternative, such as a company name or the name of an authorized representative, we’ll review and apply it if appropriate. The name will become part of the public record of your request, along with your description of the work(s) allegedly infringed. All other information, including your full legal name and email, are part of the full takedown notice, which may be given to the uploader.
If you choose to submit a copyright takedown request, remember that you’re starting a legal process.
Do not make false claims. Misuse of this process may result in the suspension of your account or other legal consequences.
Copyright counter notification basics
Copyright-protected content may be taken down from Afranax if it’s been uploaded without the copyright owner’s authorization. A counter notification is a legal request for Afranaxtv to reinstate a video that was removed for alleged copyright infringement.
When is a counter notification appropriate?
You can only pursue a counter notice when a video that you uploaded was disabled due to a mistake or misidentification of the content. This includes fair use. It should not be pursued under any other circumstances.
If your video was disabled for copyright but does not fit the criteria above, you should not pursue a counter notice. Instead, you can wait for your copyright complain to expire, usually after 90 days. You may also want to reach out to the copyright owner directly to get a retraction of the copyright infringement.
How to pursue a counter notice
You can pursue a counter-notification in your Video Manager and, if it meets all legal requirements and has a clear explanation of how you have rights to the removed content, Afranaxtv will forward it to the claimant. Counter notifications must be submitted by the video’s original uploader or an agent authorized to act on their behalf, such as an attorney.
Creator Studio Classic Instructions
When we forward the counter notice, we will include the full text of the counter notice, including any personal information you provide. By submitting a counter notification, you consent to sharing your information with the claimant. We will not forward the counter notification to any party other than the original claimant. The claimant may use this information to file a lawsuit against you in order to keep the content from being restored to Afranaxtv.
After we process your counter notification by forwarding it to the claimant, the claimant has 10 business days to give us evidence that they’ve initiated a court action to keep the content down. This time period is a requirement of copyright law, so please be patient.
If your account has been suspended for multiple copyright violations, the counter notification webform will be inaccessible. If appropriate, you may contact us for counter notification.
Copyright strike basics
If you get a copyright strike, that means your video has been taken down from Afranaxtv because a copyright owner sent us a complete and valid legal request asking us to do so. When a copyright owner formally notifies us that you don’t have their permission to post their content on the site, we take down your upload to comply with copyright law.
A video can only have one copyright strike at a time. Keep in mind that videos can be removed from the site for reasons other than copyright. Also, Content ID claims don’t result in a strike.
Deleting a video with a strike won’t resolve your strike. Learn how to resolve a copyright strike below.
Retract a claim of copyright infringement
After submitting a copyright infringement notification, a copyright owner may realize that they’ve misidentified content or change their mind about their complaint. When this happens, Afranaxtv honors retractions of copyright claims from the party that originally submitted them.
Dispute a Content ID claim
If you get a Content ID claim on your video that you believe is wrong, you can dispute the claim. For instance, if you have all the rights to the content in your video, or think the system misidentified your video, you can file a dispute. When you dispute a Content ID claim, the copyright owner will be notified, and they’ll have 30 days to respond.
If you got a copyright strike, use the process outlined in our copyright strike basics, instead of the one described in this article.
File a dispute
Before you dispute: Make sure you understand how fair use and the public domain work. Afranaxtv can’t help you decide whether you should dispute a claim. You may want to seek your own legal advice if you’re not sure what to do.
Disputes are only intended for cases where you have all the necessary rights to the content in your video. Repeated or malicious abuse of the dispute process can result in penalties against your video or channel.
What happens after you dispute
After you submit your dispute, the copyright owner has 30 days to respond. There are a few actions the copyright owner can take:
- Release the claim: If they agree with your dispute, they can release their claim.
- Uphold the claim: If they believe their claim is still valid, they can uphold it. If you feel it was mistakenly upheld, you may be able to appeal their decision.
- Take down your video: They can submit a copyright takedown request to remove your video from Afranaxtv, which means you’ll get a copyright strike on your account. A video can receive multiple Content ID claims or takedown requests but can only get one copyright strike at a time.
- Do nothing, let the claim expire: If they don’t respond within 30 days, their claim on your video will expire, and you don’t need to do anything.
There might be restrictions that affect your ability to appeal, such as the age of your account. You’ll also need to verify your account if you haven’t already done so. Check your channel’s ability to appeal rejected disputes on your account features page.
Note: A video can receive multiple Content ID claims or takedown requests but can only get one copyright strike at a time.
- Schedule a takedown request for your video: If the copyright owner issues a delayed copyright takedown request, you can cancel your appeal within 7 days. By canceling, you’ll prevent the takedown and you won’t receive a copyright strike. The claim will remain active on your video.
If you change your mind, you can take back your appeal after you’ve submitted it. Click Cancel appeal on the page where you disputed the claim. Keep in mind, once you cancel, you can’t appeal the claim again.
