At NARD Holdings, Inc., we respect the intellectual property rights of our users and others, and adhere to the provisions of the DMCA.

Also, copyright your music and sound recordings.

COPYRIGHT AND CONTENT USAGE FAQs
Copyright is a form of legal protection given to authors of original works such as literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, graphic, photographic, software and certain other intellectual works. The copyright owner has the exclusive right to reproduce the work, make new works based on the work, distribute copies, and perform or display the work, during the duration of copyright protection, subject to very limited fair use rights of others to use only such amount as necessary to exercise fair use rights. You should assume all third party content is protected by copyright unless you have determined otherwise with the assistance of legal counsel and you should not rely on fair use except pursuant to advice of legal counsel. You can, however, seek a permission or license to use third party copyright protected content and once obtained will have the right to do so.
If you are a copyright holder who believes that any of the material(s) on the Site violates your copyright rights, please contact an entertainment attorney on the needarecorddeal.com website or contact us via email or mail and provide us with appropriate notice. We will respond to clear written notices alleging infringement that comply with, or substantially comply with, the DMCA and other applicable laws.
We will remove or disable access to allegedly infringing material from the Site upon receipt of a valid DMCA notice as required by the DMCA and will provide the allegedly infringing party with a copy of the DMCA notice alleging infringement. If the party who posted the allegedly infringing information files a valid counter-notification, the materials will be reposted unless you file a claim for relief as further set forth in the DMCA.
All notices must be provided to our Designated Agent in hard copy (e.g., U.S. mail, e-mail, or facsimile) as described below. The Company does not accept notices or counter-notifications under the DMCA submitted by telephone or electronically via Company websites or mobile applications. You may wish to consult with legal counsel to assist you with assessing your claim(s) and understanding your rights and liabilities, including, without limitation, your potential liability for filing a false claim.
We do not act as an arbiter or judge of disputes about intellectual property rights. We do not adjudicate the substance of the copyright claim: we do not declare winners and losers. Your copyright in an item is determined in the real world, by real-world processes including the DMCA. The DMCA process allows users of an online service to resolve copyright disputes using the adjudication systems available in the real world. By disabling access to or removing content, as a prudential matter, we are not endorsing or validating a claim of infringement. This is why it is important to have an attorney that can walk you through the process correctly.
OVERVIEW OF THE DMCA NOTICE PROCESS
The DMCA provides a process for a copyright owner to give notification to an online service provider concerning alleged copyright infringement. When a valid DMCA notification is received, the service provider responds under this process by taking down the offending content. Upon taking down content pursuant to the DMCA, the online service provider will take reasonable steps to contact the owner of the removed content so that a counter-notification may be filed. On receiving a valid counter-notification, the online service provider generally restores the content in question, unless it receives notice from the notification provider that a legal action has been filed seeking a court order to restrain the alleged infringer from engaging in the infringing activity.
If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please contact an entertainment attorney on the needarecorddeal.com website.
An Entertainment Attorney on the needarecorddeal.com website can help you file the correct documents.
UNDER SECTION 512(f) OF THE COPYRIGHT ACT, 17 U.S.C. § 512(f), ANY PERSON WHO KNOWINGLY MATERIALLY MISREPRESENTS THAT MATERIAL OR ACTIVITY IS INFRINGING OR WAS REMOVED OR DISABLED BY MISTAKE OR MISIDENTIFICATION MAY BE SUBJECT TO LIABILITY.
