KnitWearMasters.net can’t speak on behalf of intellectual property owners, nor is KnitWearMasters.net in a position to offer legal advice or make legal determinations whether content, uploaded by a knitter, infringes someone else’s intellectual property. KnitWearMasters.net will remove the material cited for alleged intellectual property infringement when provided with proper notice.

KnitWearMasters.net may also provide a copy of the infringement notice, including the name and email address of the reporting party, to the affected knitter.
Misrepresenting a product or activity as infringing your property may cause you to be liable for damages. If you are not sure if the material in question infringes your property you may wish to speak with an attorney prior to contacting KnitWearMasters.net.

By submitting a notice you are certifying that you have researched the appropriate rulings and laws regarding infringement notices and you accept the liability for false or damaging take down requests.
3. Counter-Notice Procedure
If a knitter provides a proper "counter-notice" claiming that the material does not infringe the intellectual property at issue, KnitWearMasters.net will inform the notifying party of the individual's objection. If the property owner does not file for legal action with a court within 14 days, KnitWearMasters.net will restore the material to its location on the site. [512(g)(2)(C)]

4. Subscriber consent to local federal court jurisdiction, or if overseas, to an appropriate judicial body. [512(g)(3)(D)]
Claims of fair use, homage, artistic use, or other defenses of copyright infringement are the purview of the courts and not sufficient to counter a bona-fide notice of infringement for the application of KnitWearMasters.net policy. Failure to provide a counter-notice within 14 business days is taken as agreement to the removal of the material in question and agreement to desist from publishing any content on KnitWearMasters.net containing the specific intellectual property identified in the bona-fide notice.
KnitWearMasters.net may at its discretion forward the counter-notice and materials to the party making the claim of infringement. Items may or may not be inactivated pending legal resolution solely at the discretion of KnitWearMasters.net
If no counterclaim is made, KnitWearMasters.net will require and enforce the removal of the material question. Adding any content to KnitWearMasters.net that contains the intellectual property in violation of court order or successful claim of infringement constitutes a violation of the KnitWearMasters.net Terms of Service and may result in the cancellation of the knitter’s account.
