Content Liability and DMCA Policy
Last Updated 4 years ago

Commissi is not liable for copyrighted content uploaded to our servers, or for damages caused by such content, or damages to our users caused by misidentification or misrepresentation of such content, under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).

DMCA Takedown Notice Policy

Upon notice of a DMCA takedown, we will follow the below procedures:
  • Lock the content described in the notice. This involves moving the content to an inaccessible location temporarily during the takedown.
  • Notify the offending account owner of the takedown.
  • Notify the notice sender of our actions.
  • If we receive a counter notice from the offending account owner, we will pass it to the sender and await response, up to 10 business days.
    • If the sender does not respond within 10 business days with a court action against the offending account owner, the content will be replaced.
    • If the sender does respond with a court notice within 10 business days, the content will be held locked until the outcome of the court hearing.
DMCA notices are dealt with by a human being - we do not use an automated system for verification and to avoid abuse bots and false positives. Please allow up to 24 hours for the claim to be verified and the content to be removed.
