Intellectual Property (IP)

10. We don’t own images used for topics or reviews on RateItAll.com: We do not claim ownership or license for use of images uploaded by users for topics or reviews. It is the sole responsibility of the user to ensure that the posted material does not infringe any rights of any third parties, see more details below.

11. Copyright infringement: If you believe that your copyrights have been infringed by any user on RateItAll.com, the first step is to contact the user directly and discuss the matter with them. Most likely you will be able to clarify the issue this way, without triggering a more time-consuming DMCA process as outlined below.

If you have tried to discuss the potential issue with the user directly and remain unsatisfied, you have the option of using our process based on the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). Although we are based in Malta and not in the United States, we nonetheless elect to handle alleged copyright infringements in a process that is similar to those implemented by companies subject to the DMCA. Please think carefully before you make an allegation of copyright infringement. Making a false claim of copyright infringement in any jurisdiction may have serious legal consequences for you.

All allegations must be made in writing, signed by the person or persons making the allegation, and sent as scanned attachments to our designated agent at the following email address: IP [at] RateItAll [dot] com.

When you file a copyright infringement allegation with RateItAll.com, you must provide all of the following information in your allegation:

a. Full name(s) of the persons (legal or natural) who hold the copyright;

b. Location(s) of the original copyrighted work (in other words, where the original copyrighted material is located, not where the alleged infringing site is located);

c. Link(s) to the specific content or items on RateItAll.com that you believe are infringing your copyright;

d. Link to the published content for which you have full copyrights and which you claim to be infringed by content on RateItAll.com;

e. Detailed descriptions and explanations as to how, specifically, you believe the content on RateItAll.com infringes your copyright(s); and

f. Your full name and contact information, including your physical address, email address, as well as telephone number(s) at which you can be reached.

Your complaint will not be processed unless you also include the following statements (copied verbatim) above your signed name on the complaint:

I have a good faith belief that the use of the copyrighted materials described above as allegedly infringing is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.

I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in this notification is accurate and that I am the proprietary owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

I acknowledge that a copy of this infringement notice and any correspondence related to it, including any contact information I provided above (address, telephone number, and email address), may be disclosed to the user who uploaded the content at issue.

As we take copyright infringements very seriously (and we ask that you do the same), we will act quickly upon receipt of a DMCA complaint.

Please note that we will send the DMCA complaint to the user who entered or uploaded the content you’re claiming is infringing your copyright, so your information will be shared with that user. That user may then file a DMCA counter-notification if they disagree with your complaint and may contact you via the information you provided in your DMCA complaint.

12. Non-copyright IP infringements: If you believe that content or an item on RateItAll violates your intellectual property rights other than copyright, including but not limited to trademarks, please first contact the seller of that item to see if there is a way to settle the matter directly.

If you have tried to discuss the potential issue with the seller directly and remain unsatisfied, please provide us with the following information via email (IP [at] RateItAll [dot] com) so that we can look into the matter:

a. Link to the specific content or items on RateItAll.com that you believe are infringing your intellectual property rights;

b. Description of the intellectual property rights which you believe are violated, and a link proving you own those rights;

c. Detailed description and explanation of how you believe the content on RateItAll infringes your intellectual property rights; and

d. Your full name and contact details, including your physical address, email address, as well as telephone number(s).

Please then print the document, sign and date it, scan it and send it to IP [at] RateItAll [dot] com. We will review it quickly and take adequate measures. We may forward a copy of the information provided by you to the user who you claim is infringing your intellectual property rights.
