It is the policy of Wal-Mart.com USA, LLC and Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (collectively, “Walmart”) to respond to claims of copyright infringement related to its family of websites (collectively “Walmart Sites”). We will promptly process and investigate notices of alleged infringement by third parties and will take appropriate actions under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, Title 17, United States Code, Section 512(c)(2) (the “DMCA”), where applicable.
Pursuant to the DMCA, notifications of claimed copyright infringement by third parties should be sent to Walmart’s Designated Agent. If you believe that your copyrighted work has been infringed under U.S. copyright law and is accessible on the Walmart Sites, please notify us by contacting our designated agent. Even if you believe that the alleged infringing work was not posted by a third party, please send all notifications of claimed copyright infringement to Walmart’s designated agent listed below.
To be effective under the DMCA, notification of claims of copyright infringement by third parties must be a written communication to Walmart’s designated agent that includes the following:
Walmart’s Designated Agent for notice of claims of copyright infringement can be reached as follows:
Upon receipt of a valid notification of alleged copyright infringement by a third party, Walmart shall remove or disable access to the material identified in the notice, forward the written notification to the alleged infringer, and take reasonable efforts to notify the alleged infringer that it has removed or disabled access to this material.
You should be aware that, under the DMCA, claimants who make misrepresentations concerning copyright infringement may be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys' fees, incurred by the alleged infringer or by Walmart, if injured by relying upon such misrepresentation in removing or disabling access to the material or activity claimed to be infringing.
If a notice of copyright infringement has been filed against you, you may file a counter notification with the designated agent at the address listed above.
To be effective, a counter notification must be a written communication provided to the Walmart’s designated agent that includes the following:
If we receive a valid counter notification, it shall provide the complainant with a copy of the counter notification, inform the complainant that it will replace the removed material or cease disabling access to it in 10 to 14 days from receipt of the counter notification, and replace the removed material or cease disabling access to it in 10 to 14 business days, provided that we have not received notice from the complainant that an action has been filed seeking a court order to restrain the alleged infringer from engaging in infringing activity relating to the material on our system.
You should be aware that the DMCA provides substantial penalties for a false counter notice filed in response to a notice of copyright infringement. Claimants who make misrepresentations in their the counter notification statement may be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys' fees, incurred by any copyright owner or copyright owner's authorized licensee, or by us, if injured by relying upon such misrepresentation in replacing the removed material or ceasing to disable access to it.
