If you believe that material available on our website (teslamotorsclub.com) or web properties, infringes on your copyright(s), please notify us by submitting a DMCA notice. After we receive a valid and complete notice, we will remove the material and make a good faith attempt to contact the user who uploaded the material by email.
The Tesla Motors Club website (teslamotorsclub.com) is a communications and publishing platform where forum members and bloggers often use copyrighted materials in messaging, commentary or journalism, or transform the materials into something original. As such, before submitting a DMCA notice, it’s important to consider if the manner in which the material is used falls under fair use. If you are not sure whether material located on our website or web properties infringes your copyright, or if it is subject to fair use protections, you should first consider seeking legal advice.
**You may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) if you materially misrepresent that material or activity infringes your copyright. **We will highlight such abuses and seek to collect those damages. In addition, you are required to consider the possible fair use implications, as a result of Lenz v. Universal
. We reserve the right to challenge abuses of the DMCA process, and your submission of a DMCA notice does not waive that right.
Your DMCA notice will be forwarded to the party that made the material available, and also may be sent to third parties such as LumenDatabase.org
. A note will also be placed on the website detailing the name of the copyright owner who submitted the takedown notice.
Please follow these steps to file a notice:
- Contact the user (who posted the content in question) directly. Go to the discussion thread or blog/article post in question and leave a comment with your complaint to see if the matter can be resolved directly between you and the user.
- Send your complaint to our designated agent via the form below, if the issue cannot be resolved directly with the user.
As required by the DMCA, we have a policy to terminate users that we consider to be repeat infringers. Although we won’t share the specifics of our repeat infringer policy (we don’t want anyone to game the system, after all), we believe that it strikes the right balance: it protects the rights of copyright owners and protects legitimate users from wrongful termination. Please note that notices that are successfully countered, rejected on fair use grounds, or deemed to be fraudulent are not counted against a user or site.
Please send your complaint to our designated agent
