If you believe that content available by means of our network website infringes one or more of your copyrights, please provide a written notice (“Infringement Notice”) containing the information described below to the designated agent listed below. If we take action in response to your Infringement Notice, we will make a good faith attempt to contact the party that made such content available by means of the most recent email address, if any, provided by such party to us.

Your Infringement Notice may be forwarded to the party that made the content available and/or to third parties such as the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University.

Please be advised that you may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) if you materially misrepresent that a product or activity is infringing your copyrights. Thus, if you are not sure content located on or linked-to by our network infringes your copyright, you should consider first contacting an attorney.

Please follow these steps to file a notice:

    1. Verify that the website and/or blog in question is actually located on our network. We have no control over websites and blogs that are not part of our network. Please contact the appropriate party with your complaints. The websites and blogs that we host have “unitedresourceconnection.org” in their URL or say “This website is brought to you via a local partnership with United Resource Connection, Incorporated.” in the footer of the site.
    2. Contact the blogger directly. Go to the blog post in question and leave a comment with your complaint to see if the matter can be resolved directly between you and the blogger.
    3. Send your complaint to our designated agent. If the issue cannot be resolved directly with the blogger, send your complaint to our designated agent at (we prefer email):
