Use of Content on the Site

All materials on this site, including, but not limited to, posts, listings, images, illustrations (collectively, the “Content”) are protected by copyright, and owned or controlled by Daily Coffee News or the party credited as the provider of the Content. You shall abide by all additional copyright notices, information, or restrictions contained in any Content accessed through the Site.

You may not reproduce, perform, create derivative works from, republish, upload, post, transmit, or distribute in any way whatsoever any Content from the Site without the prior written consent of the Company. You may, however, download or make a copy of the Contents, and other downloadable items displayed on the site, for personal, non-commercial home use only, provided all copyright and other notices contained in the Contents are left intact.

User-Generated Content

The comments sections of the Site are accessible by all Users of the Site. The comments sections are a vital part of the discourse on the Site and, as such, we encourage you to abide by the following guidelines:

  • Do not post threatening, harassing, defamatory, or libelous material.
  • Do not intentionally make false or misleading statements.
  • Do not offer to sell or buy any product or service.
  • Do not post material that infringes copyright or trademark law.
  • Do not post information that you know to be confidential or sensitive or otherwise in breach of the law.
  • Keep all comments relevant to the particular Site where the comment is being posted.

The Company is not responsible for the Content of User comments and makes no warranties about the information contained therein. The Company does, however, reserve the right to remove, move, or delete comments that it, in its sole discretion, deems abusive, defamatory, obscene, in violation of copyright or trademark laws, or otherwise unacceptable.

Image Terms of Use

The Site typically displays images as part of posts written by our editors. These images include those submitted by readers, commissioned by the Company, and those we believe to be covered by the fair use doctrine. If the Company receives notice that an image is not in keeping with these terms and conditions, the Company reserves the right to remove that image.

It is our policy to respond to clear notices of alleged copyright infringement. If you think we have published an image or text that infringes your copyright, please contact us with a notice that complies with the terms of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. The text of the Act can be found at the U.S. Copyright Office web site.

To file a notice of infringement with us, you must provide a written communication (by email with an attached and signed PDF or by fax) that sets forth the items specified below. Please do not send us regular mail, as we may not receive it in a timely fashion. In all cases, if you do not hear a response from us within 10 days of submitting a complaint, e-mail publisher@dailycoffeenews.com.

To enable us to address your concerns, please provide the following information:

  1. For each allegedly infringing image or piece of text that you wish to have removed from one of our site, provide the exact permanent URL for the page containing the material.
  2. Provide information reasonably sufficient to permit us to contact you: an email address is preferred, as well as a telephone contact number.
  3. Provide the following information detailing your claim to ownership of the copyright in the allegedly infringing material:
    • Proof of copyright in the image or text concerned, namely proof of registration of the image under the DMCA

    OR, absent such registration,

    • A detailed description of where the photograph was taken, by whom, who or what the subject of the image is, AND
    • Evidence to support your claim that you own the copyright in the image.

    We will not comply with requests to remove an image where the complainant cannot prove that they own the copyright in the image in question.

  4. Include the following statement: “I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.”
  5. Sign the document and email it to publisher@dailycoffeenews.com

Please note that you will be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) if you materially misrepresent that any material on our sites is infringing your copyrights.

Indeed, in a recent case a company that sent an infringement notification seeking removal of online materials that were protected by the Fair Use doctrine was ordered to pay such costs and attorneys’ fees. The company agreed to pay over $100,000. Accordingly, if you are not sure whether material available online infringes your copyright, we suggest that you first contact an attorney.

Please note that a copy of each legal notice we receive will be sent (with your personal information removed) to Chilling Effects for publication. You can see an example of such a publication here.

We also reserve the right to publish your letter on the Site(s).
