The Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (the “DMCA”) provides recourse for copyright owners who believe that material appearing on the internet infringes their rights under U.S. copyright law.

Notices and counter-notices must meet the then-current statutory requirements imposed by the DMCA. See http://www.copyright.gov/ for details. Notices and counter-notices must be sent in writing to:

Copyright Agent at Monospace, Inc./DBA/ Directus, Attn: Copyright Agent, 149 Cleveland Road, New Haven, CT, 06515; Email: info@directus.io Phone: (224) 444-9666

You may not assign, transfer or sublicense any or all of your rights or obligations under these Terms without our express prior written consent. We may assign, transfer or sublicense any or all of our rights or obligations under these Terms without restriction.
