Bonnier IP Infringement Notification Policy

Intellectual Property Infringement Notifications

Bonnier’s Terms of Use for online services prohibit the posting of material that infringes the intellectual property rights of third parties, and our policy is to respond promptly to notification of alleged online intellectual property infringement. If you believe that your intellectual property has been infringed on any of our digital properties, in order for us to most effectively address your concerns, please use the following procedures to notify us of the claimed infringement.

Our response to your submitted infringement notification may include removing or disabling access to material proven to be the subject of infringing activity, and terminating the offending account holder. If we remove or disable access in response to your claim, a copy of your notice may be forwarded to the submitter of the allegedly infringing material.

When notifying us of your claim of infringement, you must provide written notice in the form specified below. Please note that you will be liable for any and all damages, including costs and attorneys' fees, if you misrepresent that your intellectual property has been infringed upon. If you are not certain that the online material infringes upon your intellectual property, we suggest that you first contact an attorney.
