Copyrights and Copyright Agent

IT Interactive Services Inc. asks our users to respect the intellectual property of others. Pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. sec. 512 (“the DMCA”), IT Interactive Services Inc. has designated an agent to receive Notifications of Claimed Copyright Infringement on its site, who can be reached as follows:

media@genieknows.com, or
IT Interactive Services Inc.
Attention: Copyright Agent
11 Morris Drive, Suite 205
Dartmouth, Nova Scotia B3B 1M2
CANADA

If you believe in good faith that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, please provide IT Interactive Services Inc.’s copyright agent the following:

1. Your address, telephone number, and email address;
2. A description of the copyrighted work that you claim has been infringed;
3. A description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the Site;
4. A statement by you that you have a good faith belief that the disputed use is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law;
5. A statement by you, made under penalty of perjury, that the above information in your notice is accurate and that you are the copyright owner or authorized to act on the copyright owner’s behalf;
6. An electronic or physical signature of the person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright interest.

Pursuant to the DMCA, once we receive a properly prepared Notification asserting copyright infringement, we will de-link the allegedly infringing site until we receive a properly prepared Counter-Notification. Even after we de-link an allegedly infringing site, it is possible that the site will reappear once a further search is run, due to the technology that many search engines employ in conducting searches for our users. Therefore, a more effective way to remove allegedly infringing material is by filing a Notification of Claimed Copyright Infringement with the Internet service provider that hosts the website.

If a Notification of Claimed Copyright Infringement has been filed with us against you, IT Interactive Services Inc. will advise you of that fact. If you would like to file a Counter-Notification of Claimed Copyright Infringement, we will provide you with a mail-in form that accompanies our letter to you advising you of the claimed infringement.

IT Interactive Services Inc. Trademark Policy

IT Interactive Services Inc. asks its users and advertisers to respect the intellectual property of others. As stated in our advertising terms and conditions, Advertisers are solely responsible for the content of their advertisements and the keywords they select for keyword targeted advertising. Such responsibility includes ensuring that their use of such content is not violative of any intellectual property rights of others, notably trademarks.

IT Interactive Services Inc. is not a publisher of the advertisements provided or produced by advertisers and simply facilitates the placement of such advertisement using its proprietary technology. Therefore IT Interactive Services Inc. cannot arbitrate disputes between advertisers and trademark owners.

However, since IT Interactive Services Inc. is mindful of the intellectual property rights of others, we are willing to briefly investigate good faith claims by trademark owners which may be brought to our attention through our Trademark agent. If we determine that a protected trademark is used in the content of an advertisement served by IT Interactive Services Inc., we will request that the advertiser remove the allegedly infringing content or we will remove the advertisement.

Any investigation by IT Interactive Services Inc. will be limited to claims concerning ads served by IT Interactive Services Inc. IT Interactive Services Inc. will not investigate nor will respond to trademark claims with respect to listings or websites that appear in IT Interactive Services Inc.’s non-paid search results, i.e., in the Web Results, Narrow Your Search, Expand Your Search, or Related Names Sections of IT Interactive Services Inc..com. For any such claims, please contact the owner of the relevant web-sites.

We also encourage trademark owners to make their claims directly with the owners of the allegedly infringing web-sites or advertisements, or the Internet service provider that hosts such websites. This is a much more effective way to resolve trademark claims, particularly because advertisers may have similar advertisements on other sites.
