If your notification does not substantially comply with this format, we may be unable to properly analyze and respond.

Please remember that knowing misrepresentation that the material or activity is infringing, or that it was removed in error may be liable for damages.

Counter-Notification

If you receive a notice that material you posted to a Thomson Reuters product or services is being blocked or removed due to a copyright infringement allegation, you may send us a counter notice explaining why you believe the blocking or removal is in error.

  • Identification of the copyrighted work blocked or removed.
  • Information which will help us locate where the material had appeared on our product or service.
  • Your complete contact information, including your name, address, telephone number, and email address.
  • A statement that you have a good faith belief that removal or blocking of the material was the result of a mistake or misidentification.
  • A statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which your address is located, or if you are outside the United States, the judicial district in which we are located, and that you will accept service of process from the person who contacted us regarding the alleged infringement person, or his or her agent.
