DMCA Copyright Policy
If you believe that material available on our sites, including those hosted at symlink.in, infringes on your copyright(s), please notify us by providing a DMCA notice. Upon receipt of a valid and complete notice, we will remove the material and make a good faith attempt to contact the user who uploaded the material by email.
Please note that we are unable to process DMCA notices that refer to sites hosted on third party servers that are using the self-hosted other sites or domains. software. We will remove the links made under symlink compliance to DMCA.
Symlink.in is a short url service made in the hackers way that also allows uers to earn as well. If the links are linked to a platform where bloggers often use copyrighted materials in commentary or journalism, or transform the materials into something original of their own. As such, before submitting a DMCA notice, it’s important to consider if the manner in which the material is used. If you are not sure whether material located on a Symlink.in site infringes your copyright, or if it is subject to fair use protections, you should first consider seeking legal advice.
Please be advised that you may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) if you materially misrepresent that material or activity is infringing. We have and will seek to collect those damages.
Please follow these steps to file a notice:
- Verify that the link is under our domain hosted by SymLink. We have no control over other outer blogs or website. Those other blogs or websites use the open source WordPress software or Blogger and are not hosted by us. Please contact the appropriate web host with complaints. We only host links that have “symlink.in” in their URL.
- Contact the blogger directly. Go to the blog post in question and leave a comment with your complaint to see if the matter can be resolved directly between you and the blogger.
- Send your complaint to our designated agent via the form below, if the issue cannot be resolved directly with the blogger.
As required by the DMCA, we have a policy to terminate users and/or sites that we consider to be repeat infringers. Although we won’t share the specifics of our repeat infringer policy (we don’t want anyone to game the system, after all), we believe that it strikes the right balance of protecting the rights of copyright owners as well as protecting legitimate users from wrongful termination. Please note that notices that are successfully countered, rejected on fair use grounds, or deemed to be fraudulent are not counted against a user or site.
