2. Counter Notification

If you receive a notification from us that we have removed or disabled access to material that you provided because we received a claim of copyright infringement, and you believe that the claim was made in error or that you have the right to use the material, you may send us a counter-notification.

Your counter-notification must be in writing and must include the following information:

  1. Your physical or electronic signature;

  2. Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled, and the location at which the material appeared before it was removed or access to it was disabled;

  3. A statement under penalty of perjury that you have a good faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled;

  4. Your name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which you are located (if you are located outside the United States, you consent to jurisdiction of the courts of your country of residence); and

  5. A statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement or an agent of such person.

Upon receipt of a valid counter-notification, we will promptly provide the person who provided the original notification with a copy of the counter-notification, and we will replace the removed material or cease disabling access to it in not less than ten (10) business days, unless our designated agent receives notice from the person who provided the original notification that such person has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain the user from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on our website or services.

3. Repeat Infringers

Malawi Research Hub may, in appropriate circumstances, terminate the accounts of users who are repeat infringers of intellectual property rights.
