This Copyright Infringement Policy (this “Policy”) describes Scriber’s processes for receiving and responding to copyright infringement notices, sent by rightsholders or their agents, regarding material our users have posted to the Scriber platform. This Policy is designed to comply with the requirements of the notice-and-takedown provisions of the United States’ Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”), meaning that we generally remove or disable content that rightsholders claim to be infringing. Capitalized terms used, but not defined, in this Policy are defined in our Terms of Service.
The notices described in this Policy are serious legal actions with potentially serious consequences. In particular:
Consider seeking professional advice before proceeding with any notice described in this Policy.
a. Although we respond to all copyright notices submitted under this Policy expeditiously, submitting your notice directly to us will help ensure that your notice is compliant with legal requirements and receives the fastest possible response.
b. To submit a copyright notice to our designated agent, email [email protected]. Our designated agent can also be reached by mail at Copyright Dispute Team, Scriber, LLC, 9531 Santa Monica Blvd. #105, Beverly Hills, CA 90210.

b. On receipt of a notice compliant with the requirements of the DMCA, our practice is to promptly remove or disable the material identified as infringing. Note that copyright notices can be disputed under the terms of this Policy, and that the dispute process may result in replacement of removed or disabled content.
If something you’ve posted to Scriber is the target of a valid copyright notice, we will generally send you a copy of that notice when we remove or disable the allegedly infringing content to the email address or other contact information on file in your account. To restore the removed or disabled content, you must dispute the notice in accordance with the terms of this Policy. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate the accounts of Creators or Subscribers who replace removed content in a manner inconsistent with this Policy.
a. You may dispute a copyright notice submitted against your Scriber account by emailing [email protected]. After receiving a dispute notice that meets the requirements of the DMCA, we will send a complete copy of the notice to the complaining party. The rightsholder will then have ten (10) business days to initiate legal action and notify us. If we don’t receive timely notice of legal action from the rightsholder, we will generally replace the material that had been removed or disabled.
