The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (“DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. If you believe, in good faith, that materials hosted on the Site infringe your copyright, please provide Ohio Art with a notice of infringement (“Notice”) containing the following information:

1. an electronic or physical signature of the owner of the copyright or of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest;

2. a description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed including the URL (i.e. Internet address) or other specific location on the Site where the material that you claim is infringing is located, including enough information to allow us to locate the material and to determine why you believe an infringement has taken place;
