Upon receipt of an effective notice of alleged copyright infringement, InVEST will remove or disable access to the allegedly infringing content, forward the notice of alleged copyright infringement to the alleged infringer, and inform the alleged infringer that InVEST has removed or disabled access to such content.

(i) A physical or electronic signature of the alleged infringer.
(ii) 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.

(iv) The alleged infringer’s name, address, and telephone number, and a statement that the alleged infringer consents to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the address is located, or if the alleged infringer’s address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which the alleged infringer may be found, and that the alleged infringer will accept service of process from the person who provided the notice of alleged copyright infringement to InVEST or an agent of such person.
Upon receipt of an effective counter notification, InVEST will provide a copy of the counter notification to the sender of the notice of alleged copyright infringement and inform such person that InVEST will replace the removed material or cease disabling access to it in 10 business days. InVEST will then replace the removed material or cease disabling access to it in no fewer than 10, and no more than 14, business days following receipt of the effective counter notification, unless InVEST’s DMCA Agent first receives notice from the sender of the notice of alleged copyright infringement that such person has filed an action seeking a court order to restrain the alleged infringer from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on the alleged infringer’s system or network.
