Intellectual Property Complaint Policy

HookTab respects the intellectual property rights of others, and we ask you to do the same. HookTab may, in appropriate circumstances and at our discretion, terminate access to its online sites or platforms for users who infringe the intellectual property rights of others, and/or remove materials that infringe the intellectual property rights of others. If you believe that a work of yours (e.g., artwork, photo, text, etc.) has been copied or is otherwise used in a manner that constitutes copyright infringement on our sites or platforms, you may notify us as set forth in the Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 (DMCA). For your DMCA complaint to be valid under the DMCA, please provide HookTab designated agent (see below) the following information:

A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright in the work that is allegedly infringed.

Identification of the copyrighted work(s) claimed to have been infringed.

Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit HookTab to locate the material.

Information reasonably sufficient to permit HookTab to contact you as the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an electronic mail address at which you may be contacted.

A statement that you have a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.

A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that you are authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

Please note that whether or not HookTab disables access to or removes content, HookTab may make a good faith attempt to forward the written notification, including the complainant’s contact information, to the person who posted the content and/or may take other reasonable steps to notify such person that HookTab has received notice of an alleged violation of intellectual property rights or other violation. Please also note that under Section 512(f) of the Copyright Act (17 U.S.C. § 512(f)), any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or activity is infringing may be subject to liability, including civil penalties, monetary damages, and attorneys’ fees and costs.

If you are submitting a Counter-Notice under the DMCA based on content that has been removed or disabled by HookTab, please use the same contact information specified above.


If HookTab receives repeated notices that you have posted others’ intellectual property without permission, HookTab may terminate your account. HookTab has a system for keeping track of repeat violators of the intellectual property rights of others and determining when to suspend or terminate your account.

HookTab reserves the right to terminate accounts that act against the spirit of the Terms of Service, regardless of how many strikes are involved.
