When we receive proper Notification of Alleged Copyright Infringement, we promptly remove or disable access to the allegedly infringing material and terminate the accounts of repeat infringers.

If you believe that content on the CampaignGrid Direct Site violates another party's copyright, you should contact the copyright owner directly. However, if you believe that your own copyrighted work is accessible on the CampaignGrid Direct Site in violation of your copyright, please visit our Copyright Policy to find out how to submit a Notification of Alleged Copyright Infringement to request that we remove the infringing material.

How can I tell if content is copyrighted?

Before uploading content to the CampaignGrid Direct Site, please be certain that you own the copyright to all content in your work or that you have the permission of the copyright owner to use the content. If all the content is created solely by you and does not contain material created by any other party -- or if the copyright holder has otherwise authorized you to use that material -- you may upload the content (as long as it complies with our Terms of Use).

We cannot provide you with legal advice about whether you own the copyright to the material you upload or if you are authorized to use that material, so please consult an attorney to be certain of your rights. In addition, the following Sites offer useful background information on the law of copyright and other intellectual property laws:

What can I do if I don't own the copyright to the content I uploaded or I do not have the permission of the copyright owner to use it?

We strictly prohibit uploading and transferring infringing material on the CampaignGrid Direct Site and we terminate the accounts of repeat infringers. You may only upload content to the CampaignGrid Direct Site if you are certain that you have the legal right to do so. If you are not certain that you are legally authorized to use the content you have uploaded to our Site, you should remove it immediately. Please consult our Copyright Policy for more information.

Do I own the copyright to content that I filmed on my own camcorder or phone from the television, live concert, or sporting event?

Just because you recorded the content onto your own recording device such as a phone or camcorder does not necessarily mean that you own the copyright to that material or that you are authorized to use it. Claiming ownership of that content cannot protect you from infringing on the true owner's copyright. If you have any question whatsoever as to whether you are legally authorized to use or upload any content, consult an attorney before uploading it to the CampaignGrid Direct Site.

What does "public domain" mean?

Content is released into the "public domain" when the term of the copyright on that content expires. Once content is in the public domain, it can be used freely by the public. You can learn more about content in the "public domain" at the following resources:

Do I retain the copyright and other legal rights to material I upload to CampaignGrid Direct?

For more information please visit our Terms of Use, which contains a link to our Copyright Policy and other important information about your privileges and responsibilities as a CampaignGrid Direct user.

Why was my content removed?

Your content was removed because we determined that it violates the CampaignGrid Direct Terms of Use to which you agreed when you registered to use the CampaignGrid Direct Site. The CampaignGrid Direct Terms of Use includes our content, copyright, and privacy policies. Please reread the Terms of Use and be certain that all of your remaining content on the CampaignGrid Direct Site complies with these rules.

What if I believe that my content was mistakenly or incorrectly reported as copyright infringing?

If you believe that your content was mistakenly or incorrectly reported as copyright infringing, please visit our Copyright Policy to find out how to submit a copyright Counter Notification and request that we restore your content.
