If you are claiming that your copyrighted material is being infringed, please send notification of the claimed infringement to the following designated agent for Architizer:

- Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or a representative list if multiple works are involved;
- Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or the subject of infringing activity to be removed or access disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit Architizer to locate the material (e.g., URL of the infringing material);
- Information sufficient for Architizer to contact the complaining party, such as name, address, telephone number, and email address;
- A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law; and
- A statement that the information provided in the notice is accurate and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is the copyright owner or authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.
In response to each notification of infringement containing the information specified above, Architizer shall:
- Expeditiously remove or disable access to the material that is allegedly infringing; and
- Take reasonable steps promptly to notify the alleged infringer that it has removed or disabled access to the material.
3. Counter Notification
The alleged infringer may provide Architizer’s designated agent with a counter notification. Each counter notification must include the following:
- A physical or electronic signature of the alleged infringer;
- Identification of the material that has been removed or to which access has been disabled;
- A statement under penalty of perjury, that the alleged infringer has a good-faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification;
- The alleged infringer’s name, address, telephone number, and a statement that the alleged infringer consents to the jurisdiction of the Federal District Court for the judicial district in which such address is located, or if the alleged infringer’s address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which Architizer may be found, and that the alleged infringer will accept service of process from the complaining party who provided notification pursuant to Section 1 (Notification) above or an agent of such person.
4. Response to Counter Notification
In response to each counter notification containing the information specified above, Architizer shall:
- Promptly provide the complaining party with a copy of the counter notification and inform the complaining party that it will replace the removed material or cease disabling access to it in ten (10) business days; and
- Replace the removed material or cease disabling access to it not less than 10 or more than fourteen (14) business days following receipt of the counter notification, unless its designated agent first receives notice from the complaining party that the complaining party has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain the alleged infringer engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on Architizer’s system or network.
