What Can You Do if ACT Takes Down Content for Copyright Infringement?
If we have taken down content you were using via an ACT product or Service, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, at 17 U.S.C. § 512(g)(2), and any other applicable laws may permit you to provide us with counter-notification that the materials were removed or disabled as a result of a mistake or misidentification of the materials.

We will restore access between 10 and 14 days after receiving a counter-notification unless the copyright holder informs us that they have filed an action seeking a court order to restrain you from engaging in infringing activity using an ACT product or service. If we decide not to restore access to the materials, you will not receive any further notification.
