If you believe in good faith that materials posted on the StartWise Service infringe your copyright, you (or your agent) may send StartWise a "Notification of Claimed Infringement" requesting that the material be removed, or access to it blocked. The notice must include the following information:

  1. A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the works that have been allegedly infringed;
  2. Identification of the copyrighted work alleged to have been infringed (or if multiple copyrighted works located on the StartWise Service are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works);

7.4 If you believe in good faith that a notice of copyright infringement has been wrongly filed against you, the DMCA permits you to send StartWise a counter-notice.

7.5 Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA; see http://www.loc.gov/copyright/ for details. Notices and counter-notices with respect to the StartWise Service should be sent to info@startwise.com.
