Bonfire Copyright Policy: Copyright Infringement Complaints
Capitalized terms used but not defined in this Copyright Policy will have the meanings given to them in the Bonfire Creator Terms of Service.
- General Statement
Users (including Creators) of the Bonfire Platform may not upload, post, route, transmit, link, or otherwise make available on or via the Bonfire Platform any materials protected by copyright in a manner that infringes that copyright. Users should be aware that they may be legally liable for engaging in any such activity.
- Repeat Infringer Policy
In accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”), it is our policy to terminate, in appropriate circumstances, access to the Bonfire Platform by any user who is a repeat infringer. If you believe that, in connection with the Bonfire Platform, a user has engaged in repeated infringement that includes your copyrighted materials, please provide our designated copyright agent (see below) with information sufficient to show that the user is a repeat copyright infringer, and that appropriate circumstances exist for our termination of such user.
- Termination of Service
Each user agrees that, if they are terminated pursuant to this policy, they will not attempt to establish a new account with us under any name, real or assumed.
- Reservation of Rights
This policy does not affect any other rights that Bonfire may have under law or contract, and all such rights are expressly reserved by Bonfire.
- DMCA Notices and Counter-Notices
The DMCA provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the Internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law. Specifically, if you believe in good faith that material infringing your rights resides on the Bonfire Platform, you (or your agent) may send to us a notice requesting that we remove the material or block access to it. If you believe in good faith that someone has wrongly submitted to us a notice of copyright infringement against you, the DMCA permits you to send to us a counter-notice. Notices and counter-notices should be sent to our designated copyright agent (see below), and must meet the following requirements:
- A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed;
- Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site;
- Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate the material;
- Information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted;
- 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 in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

DMCA notices and counter-notices, and repeat infringer information should be delivered in writing to Bonfire’s designated copyright agent:
