Digital Millennium Copyright Act Policy

Copyright Policy

4sync.com takes copyright violation very seriously and is committed to protecting the rights of copyright owners. 4Sync users are bound by the Terms of Use as well as by law to respect authors' rights. Users may not copy, adapt, distribute, or publicly display or perform works of original authorship without the authorization of the respective rights holders.

4Sync will take immediate action to stop and further prevent copyright infringement upon acquiring knowledge of a copyright violation. As noted in 4Sync's Terms of Use, users found to engage in copyright infringement will be subject to consequences of increasing severity, from disabling of access to material in their accounts to permanently banning the user from 4Sync's website. 4Sync follows a three strikes policy – a user's account will be terminated and the user permanently barred from 4sync.com upon a third instance of detection of unauthorized copyrighted content in the account. Please refer to the Repeat Infringer Termination section below (also in our Terms of Use) for a detailed description of our policy regarding copyright infringement.

Notice to Owners of Copyrighted Works

If you are the copyright owner of content which appears on 4Sync's website and you did not authorize the use of the content you must notify 4Sync in writing in order for us to identify the allegedly infringing content and take action.

Your written notice must include the following:
  • A physical or electronic signature of the copyright owner or authorized person acting on behalf of the owner which expressly claims an executive right that is allegedly being infringed.
  • Specific identification of the copyrighted work which you are alleging to have been infringed. If you are alleging infringement of multiple copyrighted works with a single notification you must submit a representative list which specifically identifies each of the works that you allege are being infringed.
  • Specific identification of the location and description of material that is claimed to be infringing or to be subject of infringing activity with enough detailed information to permit 4Sync to locate the material. You should include the specific URL or URLs of the webpages where the allegedly infringing material is located.
  • Information reasonably sufficient to allow 4Sync to contact the complaining party which may include a name, address, telephone number and electronic mail address at which the complaining party may be contacted.
  • A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by copyright owner, its agent or the law.
  • A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

Repeat Infringer Termination Policy

Pursuant to the Terms of Use, users may not store, change, distribute, perform or display works of original authorship. Users are responsible for assuring that they have proper authorization to use copyrighted content. Upon receipt of a valid take-down notice or if we reasonably believe that a user’s account contains infringing material, we will immediately disable all access to the material, including the user’s access. We will notify the user via email, affording an opportunity for response. We will promptly terminate repeat infringers and will not allow the creation of new accounts for a person we identify as a previously terminated user.
